Full Moon Monarch Crest Rides

Full-Moon-Monarch-Crest-Rides

Ever think about riding the Monarch Crest Trail at night?  Well this is your chance.  This is like no other ride we offer.  It can be cold, scary, quite, filled with laughter, and magical.  There is one catch, you have to have your own lighting system with a minimum burn time of 4 hours, and a back up lighting system such as a headlamp or flashlight.  Yes, it is a full moon and on the Monarch Crest up above treeline you might not need your lights, but in the trees you will want to see where you are going.

You must be an advanced rider – night time riding totally changes the difficulty of riding the Monarch Crest.  For your riding enjoyment we are offering 3 dates for 2016:  Tuesday July 19; Wednesday August 17; and Thursday August 18.  All should provide an amazing opportunity to experience one of our favorite times of the day to ride the Monarch Crest Trail.  (Scroll through the calendar below to find the listed dates and select the one you’d like to join us for.)
