The Golden Cycling Club wants you to make the most of your time while riding the local trails.  As such, we have written down what we consider to be some of the best ways to link up trails in the area.  We’ve called these our Signature Rides.

A few Signature Rides have been provided for each of the local trail networks.  With these we have included approximate times and trail lengths, so that you can choose your ride based on the time you have and the style of ride you’re looking for.  Note, these are approximate times that we have estimated based on a rider of intermediate ability and fitness.  Simple descriptive names have been given to each of the Signature Rides, although locals won’t recognize these Rides by name.  However, we’re confident that riders who know our trails will approve of the selection of trails we’ve stitched together to make each Signature Ride.
