A little of everything. Faster and more flowy than Fully Rigid, but still enough rocks, roots and switchbacks to keep the tech crowd happy too. Quite rideable uphill (which makes a nice after work loop possible using Silent Swamp to Preston to PBR to Fully Rigid and back down JoyRide), but uphill is challenging in parts. If descending, keep your speed in check and be aware of riders climbing.

       I thought this was going to be an easy trail after Off The Grid. It was not so. Still has lots of obstacles, roots, rocks, tight switchbacks. Really fun overall, but just a bit harder than I was expecting for a blue.

       This trail is quite technical as a intermediate trail. It as many rocks. You can do if you go slowly. If you are comfortable with this trail, you are ready to challenge black diamonds as well

       Awkward flat turns a no rhythm at all for the first half. Gets more fun further on. Fully disagree with chunky-tech-doctor about being a top blue. And on that note, please put a little more effort into sentence formation and punctuation if you are going to make a point of reviewing a lot of trails in the area. It’s hard to take you seriously.

       Joy ride is one of the best trails out there pin it and tell me it's not one of the best if you can't ride the trail its all good flat turns are part of biking ? I'm confused on how you dont think this is top of the lists there is not alot of blues better sst? Atomic dog skyline? There all just as good joyride is fantastic trail and a must hit tech for days flow as well with drops and chuck. And please don't tell me what to do ok if you can't read my crap texts then leave it alone calling someone out and talking crap on a app is a bit ridiculous.

       This trail was pretty muddy today. I’m mostly a progressing beginner so I stick to blue runs and found the technical features on this run a bit beyond my ability. I definitely had to walk on the super steep sharp corners and some rocky spots but there was definitely plenty of trail in between for me to have lots of fun. I’ll come back again for some more when it dries out
