Skill & Fitness Level

The skill and fitness level is based on of a starting point of Level 1 where a beginner rider is eager to ride hard and currently building skills and fitness. At level 1, the rider is physically able to complete a 20 mile road ride and or a 10 mile mountain bike ride. If a rider’s skill level is below a level 1, one may want to reconsider booking a trip for safety reasons. EXCEPTIONS: all members of the booking party are below level 1, or a private, one on one guided trip or ride is desired.
