UPDATE (Wed 2:30): With the forecast for windchills around 0°F, we are expecting a small group tonight. Check the forecast, make good clothing decisions, and check the discussion in our Facebook group to see who else will be showing up. We may not have an official leader. So, if this would be your first visit, perhaps not the best week to show up. If you've done this ride before and want to ride, we wholeheartedly support you riding and then giving crap to the regulars who did not. ;-)

Kyle loves mountain biking. And mountain biking is fun. So for the fall and winter, the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride is a mountain bike ride on Sycamore Trail!
Meet us at the trail. The "north gravel lot" is off 66th Avenue, just west of the river and east of the Johnston Soccer Fields. If the gravel lot is full, you can park in the paved Neal Smith Trail lot on the east side of the river and ride the protected bike/ped trail on the bridge.
Gather at 7:30 p.m. We will roll out at 7:45.
The pace will vary depending on who shows up. We may split into smaller groups if the group is large or there is a significant difference in paces. We vary the route a little each time, but regardless of route, we regroup at the following points:
- Double Track (by the gravel pit)
- Fish Camp (confluence of Beaver Creek and Des Moines River)
- Turnaround (the paved Trestle to Trestle Trail)
- Fish Camp
- Double Track
If you've not ridden at Sycamore before and are concerned about getting lost, find Katherine, Kyer, or Kyle before the ride and let them know. We can find you a buddy. :-) We don't want to lose anyone! Getting lost is *not* fun.
BRING LIGHTS. Running into things is *not* fun.
We do not ride wet trails. Nor during blizzards. Watch our Facebook page carefully for updates. Or join our Facebook group!
