JRA Backbone Trail

September 3, 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm

This is a strong intermediate trail with plenty of climbing and technical features. Not recommended for a beginner rider. This trail is not open to e-bikes.

Meeting spot: https://goo.gl/maps/8KtuLvTUXi4YAJC1A

Route: We’ll ride Backbone Trail from the Newton Canyon Trailhead on Kanan Rd out to Encinal Canyon. If we turn around and head back, it will be about 9.5 miles round trip. If the group is feeling strong, we can include the Encinal to Etz Fireroad portion of the Backbone Trail to get a grand total of 17.5 miles. Let’s see how everyone’s feeling.

You must always come prepared with a bike in good working condition, water, a helmet, as well as any protective gear you deem necessary. It’s a good idea to bring something to eat if you haven’t eaten in the last few hours. You should bring an extra innertube in case of a flat.

We always host “no drop” rides. This means we won’t leave anyone behind. We always welcome new riders however we do recommend that you have good bike handling skills and appropriate fitness for the ride distance.

Bicycling has its inherent risks, including serious injury or death. Your participation is an acknowledgment of those risks and an assumption of liability. Riding at night requires sufficient lighting. We recommend a light with a minimum of 1000 lumens.
