JRA Rountain Bike Challenge
December 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$65.00
We have a new JRA Challenge for you! We call it the
“JRA Rountain Bike Challenge”
We had so much fun hosting our Coffee Grinder series that we just had to do one more before the end of the year. And this time you get to use the right tool for the job!
This ride has 4 stages comprised of road and mountain segments. Rather than making compromises with a gravel bike, you get to bring your road bike AND your mountain bike.
For each segment, we will leapfrog your bike to the next sag stop/transition for the switch! And to add to the fun, this is a Poker Ride! At the beginning and at each stage, every rider will draw a card to see who gets the best poker hands for some cool prizes at the end.
Stage 1 Road: 17.95mi 1,370ft Gain. The ride starts at JRA Bikes & Brew.
Most riders should be able to knock out this fun route around town in
about 1:10. A great warm-up for things to come…
Stage 2 MTB: 8.54mi 1,105ft Gain. The riders will be challenged right
out of the gate with a 1-mile rocky climb, gaining 650ft with an average
13% grade. The reward is over 4 miles of fantastic downhill trails! The
fastest riders will only spend about 50 minutes on course.
Stage 3 Road: 19.12mi 1,520ft Gain. No event is complete without some
picturesque scenery. And this stage won’t disappoint. The riders will
start with a nice spin over to Agoura Rd. Agoura Rd has wide bike lanes
and has several stretches of shade under venerable oak trees. The ride
through Hidden Valley is full of open pastures on a back country road.
Stage 4 MTB: 6.94mi 827ft Gain. Although short, this last stage has it
all! The opening climb winds it’s way up the hillside to one of the best
little known secrets in the valley: a swoopy, ribbon of singletrack
that’s begs you to keep the RPMs up. Throw in some impossibly steep
short climbs, a primo descent on Space Mountain, and an easy roll to JRA
Bikes & Brew for a tasty, well-deserved BBQ.
