We are migrating to the ice house side of the park for winter. Lights are getting to be needed near the end of the ride.

Look for black Bmw X5
Video of Fairland from a couple of years ago, first loops tends to be like the video:
About Fairland: 95% non-technical ride with few major climbs and no mandatory obstacles (they all have ride-arounds). Promise, no rocks. None! (there is one section of busted-up concrete, but it’s not rocks, and it’s only 10-15 feet long). Anyway, there are a couple good places to stop and practice log-overs, and balance on the boardwalks.
Will be beginner friendly and as much as 8-9 miles total, depending on group, pace will be Casual/Moderate (but it depends on how many beginners we have attending):
This pace is for regular riders who consider themselves slower than the intermediate category. At times, the pace will be a bit faster than casual rides. We wait up at intersections to let all riders catch up. True beginners may find this pace a bit faster than a casual ride. We’re really patient people, at least most of us. Please keep in mind that this loop is to encourage beginners to join us, patience is needed from the faster riders, if you wish for a fast competitive pace, this is not the ride for you.
shooting for wheels rolling at 6:30pm.
What to bring:
Plenty of water, helmet (no helmet no ride), your mtb of course!, multi-tool (although you can borrow mine), patch kit, extra tube (make sure it has the same valve you need for your wheel)
