Group Ride @ Saltese Uplands @ Saltese Uplands Conservation Area
Mar 10 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

 

Evergreen’s monthly group ride returns March 10th! This is the first of the season and is returning to the Saltese Uplands Conservation Area! We will have coffee, donuts, and cool swag to raffle off!

Wheels rolling at 9am! For this ride, we will be doing the Saltese Loop which is approximately 6 miles of rolling terrain, some mild climbs make this a bit less of a challenge and more family friendly. We will break up the group into a couple different options based on speed/skill; team ‘A’ and team ‘B’. Group B will do the expanded loop including the revised short draw segment.

Once back at the parking area, we will raffle off the cool swag, drink whatever coffee is left, eat a well earned donut, and tell stories about maple bars in fannie packs

We will meet at the trail head just off S Henry Rd. Roughly- 1422 S Henry Rd Spokane Valley, WA for map reference.
