Mini-Quake / 12-14 Pace / 980' / 22 mi / RL Les Mischke / 10AM
Length: 22 miles
Elevation: 980 feet
Ride Type: Re-Group
Cancelation Guidelines: Rain / Temps < 40F / Lightening / Wind > 25 mph
The Mini-Quake ride is offered as a slower paced, shorter, and easier version of the classic Earthquake ride. If you are unsure about maintaining the pace or going the distance of the Earthquake ride, then this ride may be right for you. We ride through downtown, then north to Felida area, east on the Salmon Creek Trail, south via Hazel Dell Ave. The two rides generally meet and re-group together at the restrooms at the park ball fields. No one intentionally left behind.
Depending on how much you have left in your legs and lungs, there are 2 options available to complete the route:
Climb McLoughlin (regular mini-EQ route)
Climb half of Blandford via Evergreen
All options lead back to the River Maiden for coffee and socializing after the ride.
All registered riders are welcome and may depart at any time to ride their own pace and distance; please let the ride leader know if you leave the group.
Registration is required and almost always free to both members and non-members. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to register for this event.
