We will follow the Santa Fe Trail South through the Air Force Academy until we arrive at Goose Gossage Park and finish off by riding our bikes on the dirt mounds there.

Here is a link to the route on Google Bike Route
Its not a very hard ride. The trail is dirt and paved so Mountain Bike style or fatter tire bikes are best. Road bikes with super skinny tires might be a little tough over the dirt trail portion.
The weather should warm up to about 60 degrees but be ready for it to be a little chilly so have gloves to keep your hands warm. Everyone needs to have a helmet. Bring a water bottle or Camel Bak to stay hydrated. Small snacks are fine too. Parents and capable family members are welcome to attend. There is no cost to this event.
