These rides are not guided and just recommended routes. Santa Cruz, 4Lise, and Trailforks take no responsibility for your actions. Ride with a friend, ride smart, look before you leap.

We're taking it old school with a classic low-valley technical romp. Skinnies, rock rolls, bridges, even teeter-totters, this loop is sure to make you feel like a child again.
Santa Cruz Bicycles and 4Lise are hosting these informal group rides throughout Crankworx. If you can't join us then follow the route on Trailforks whenever suits you. We'll be hiding prizes on the trail each morning and leaving clues across our friends social media channels. Follow and search #riseandgrindcrankworx for cryptic clues.

A whole lot of fun features in this trail, We had a blast. The river actually took over some sections, you can still get through, water is not deep and bottom is solid. Kinda lost our way for a bit, probably because the river hid the way. But definitely a must do!
