      The ride start with a big climb, or drive to the top of a narrow winding mtn road (do-able by normal cars). Driving saves two miles of climbing, but you'll need to get back to the car somehow. Then a 1 mile technical single track climb, to a nice 2 mile single track downhill,and then, a 1.5 mile high speed dirt road downhill. There are great views on this ride and a cool place (Horsefeathers) to get a beer after riding.
