Our 10 mile route option is a great way for novice or younger riders to join the fun. 10 Mile Ride – $40

10 mile – starts at 9:30

TYPICAL 2 HOUR RIDE TIME, 400 FT CLIMBING – SUITABLE FOR ACTIVE NOVICE TO INTERMEDIATE RIDERS.

After exiting the Applied Medical parking lot at Comercio and Empresa, riders will travel along Empresa a short distance to Aventura, where they will turn left and continue to the end of Aventura to access the Tijeras Creek and Arroyo Trabuco trails. In this shorter route, riders will turn SOUTH on the Arroyo Trabuco trail and continue until the turnaround point at approximately 4.5 miles. We’ll have a small aid station at the turnaround point, and riders will return along the same trail back to Applied Medical in RSM. Yes, there will be some hills, rocks, streams (hard to avoid in mountain biking). But we guarantee you’ll have a blast.
