This is the perfect "newbie" course. I'm not much of a mountain biker but the first time I rode The Rock I didn't put my foot down one single time. It is extremely flat, only difficult section is one off-camber trail next to the "bridge" and its not really that hard--just pedal through it. Clint Gibbs is the chief trailkeeper out here . . . he does a fine job. Apr 29, 2014
