OptOutside Family MTB Ride

Mountain biking trail ride for families in San Diego's Los Penaquitos canyon, hosted by the San Diego Mountain Biking Association

This morning mountain bike ride hosted by the San Diego Mountain Biking Association is in honor of REI's OptOutside campaign, intended to get familes outdoors. The ride will meet at 9AM at the ranch house; ride rolls at 9:30 AM.

After a quick bike and helmet check there will be a short introduction to trail riding etiquette and safety before we roll out.

Depending on ages/skills the organizers will offer a 2-3 mile loop for smaller riders (or balance bikes) and a 6-7 mile loop for stronger riders. The ride will mostly follow fire roads with some single track. Pace as slow as the slowest rider, no rider left behind. All wheels welcome: balance bikes, trailers, trailer-bikes, bike seats, but no training wheels as they might get stuck on the uneven ground.

Parents/Legal guardians are required to stay with their minors at all times.

Limited to 30 kids and up to 2 accompanying adults per kid.
