This is the first ride of the First Time Visitor trip. Warm up with some good corners on John Deer, then head over and ride some tighter switchbacks on Asian Adonis before climbing back up and riding some of that North Shore Jank you've always heard of. If you feel overwhelmed while climbing up for your third descent, you can bail out early and ride the bottom portion of Severed D before taking Bridle Path back to the parking lot.

Expect this ride to take about 2-3 hours depending on how many selfies you take.
