Hyper Ventilation and Extension loop: warm-up with a gentle climb on the new Lower Uprooted (ask LBS for info) which leads into Upper Uprooted and onto the technical climbing challenge of Hyper Ventilation (all those switchbacks are rideable!). Stop at the top to admire the stunning views then head down Hyper Extension and onto Roots Extension for a big grin downhill blast. The loop finishes opposite a good entry point into Ridgemont to extend your ride. Best to ride this one in the morning as the climb up Hyper Ventilation gets the full afternoon sun and you’ll be sweating pretty hard as it is!
