This group will be the INTERMEDIATE group lead by Cate Swank. We will start from the Evergreen Lake house, climb dedisse to the lower lot of 3 Sisters and then proceed to ascend to the top of Evergreen mountain. We will descend what we came up. Expect about 10 miles.

Please note as the weather gets warmer the trail choice expands and we will be doing more technical trails as the season progresses.

Ability level guide for INTERMEDIATE:

Trail experience-
Has good experience on green technical XC trails. Is comfortable on technical blue trails with roots and loose rocks and tight single track.

Endurance-
Has a base level of endurance and and can ride up to 8 miles on a mountain bike comfortably.

Skills-
No jumping or drop experience. Good balance and control on a bike. Can change gears and brake without thinking about it. Blue trails on the front range are rideable for you even if you walk sections that are more technical than 80% of the trail.

If you feel like you are past this ability please look at the other event on this day for the STRONG INTERMEDIATE group ride.

Please be prepared for CO weather. It will most likely start out chilly and end a little warmer this early in the season. If it snows, we will postpone the ride.
