come ride in the woods!

Casual group mountain bike ride. No-drop, all skill levels, relaxed wind-down for the week. Riding with all skill levels is a great way to learn new skills or take it easy and work on perfecting existing ones. Meet us at the Thick Bikes parking lot on S 15th St to carpool at 6:15 or just meet us at the Pie Traynor Lot (behind the wave pool) around 7. Food and drinks after at Mad Mex.

On a slightly related note, can you recommend any good tires for this kind of riding? My rims are 1.5″ but I figure I could put on something wider with treads

i doubt your rims are actually 1.5″ wide. that would be 35mm wide, which you only find in high end downhill rims. you sure you arent talking about the tires currently on your rims?

anyway, as a rule of thumb in the woods, you want wider rims. wide tires on narrow rims is not good times. unless you think folding the tire over in corners and pulling it out of the rim is a good time.

Ha, no I am indeed referring to the tire, have no idea what the rim actually is

I basically just want to ride around on my disc hybrid, but only feel like changing the tires

I actually got out for about an hour today!

The Racing Ralphs didn’t do me any favors on the climbs for sure, then again I’m so out of shape I was walking a lot of stuff anyways…which also made my cleat into a big ball of ice. I should get platforms before Friday.
