MTB-201 Learning Endurance Mountain Bike Rides

Mountain Bike Training for Better Adventures.

 Intermediate Level Mountain Bike Ride.

 

 This is a great mountain bike ride of 25 miles, with fewer than 4 miles of road riding in 2 small segments. Round-Trip ride starting and ending at the Danvers High School.  See some great trails some you never knew existed.  Nothing super technical on this ride, but lots of twisty trails, fun downhills, and a visit to 4 different MTB parks. This is the same route as the first 1/2 of the CX-201 ride. CX-201 is Advanced Level, because you are on a CX bike. This ride is Intermediate Level because MTBs have suspension, while a CX bike is fully rigid. 


WHY 25 MILES??? 

 I put a lot of rail-trail in this version so Intermediate Level Mountain Bikers can try some longer distance riding. This is a great route to advance your endurance level. This route is well thought out so you can experience different aspects of longer mountain bike rides. Some fun stuff, followed by more fun stuff, followed by more fun stuff, followed by a gentle rail-trail dirt ride return.  Great training if you want to attend  some of All Day Adventures  Advance Level Mountain Bike Rides. 

Ride time is less than 3-1/2 hours.

About the Trails: The trail systems in Concord are wide and well-groomed single tracks. Easy to ride, not too many bumps. You will not encounter many other trail users. In wet conditions you may want to wait for a better day, because of the slippery tree roots. These trails are easy to navigate, some moderate hill climbs, but mostly just peaceful solitude for you and your other
