Evergreen and Crank Sisters Coed Group Beginner-Intermediate Ride at Tiger (Inside Passage)

Meet at Tiger Mountain (East Tiger Summit) at 9 AM.

This ride has moderately technical, intermediate terrain and a 45-60 minute climb. The ride is open to beginner-mediates, intermediates, and more advanced riders who want to spend a fun day on the mountain with a rad group of folks. We can session the more challenging features, and we encourage riders to walk anything that is beyond their skill level. You do need to be fit enough to climb about 1000 feet, with breaks.

Bike Requirements
You can ride these trails on an XC bike or a hardtail, but if you have a bike with 5-6" of travel, bring it. Please make sure your bike is in good working order. If you are not sure, take it to your bike mechanic before the ride. Also, bring an extra tube that fits your bike, so you can repair a flat tire

Directions
Meet at the East Tiger Summit upper lot at 9 a.m. Take I90 East, then Exit 25 for WA-18, turn right on WA-18 towards Auburn, go 4 miles on WA-18, and pull into the big gravel parking lot on the right (Tiger Mountain State Forest). To get to the upper lot, drive straight ahead and turn left onto the gravel road that climbs up to the upper lot, on the right. Park and look for us near the bathrooms. Note: You must have a Discover Pass to park in the upper lot. You can get an annual or daily pass online here: Discover PassIf you don't have a Discover Pass, you can park in the lower, DOT lot and ride up the gravel road to meet us. If you do, make sure to arrive 10-15 minutes early so you have time to get up there.

Important
Evergreen has a no-drop policy. We will regroup often and adjust the pace based on riders' preference. Sessioning is encouraged. Bring food and plenty of water.
