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.

Nearly but not quite. Tripped on the saddle mid bail, to six foot drop onto ribs. Ow.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail. Chainsaw needed! It's on the very first bridge from the start of the trail. There's also 2 trees down on the Access Road through Emerald Forest (the one that starts at the gravel pit and takes you to the start of RRTI). They are both located at the forest's edge where the large clearing is, one on each side.
