15.07.2008 18:45 to 21:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Triemli (TBC)

We'll go for a spin on the mountain bikes once again on Tuesday evening. If you are interested in coming sign up here so we know when we have a full complement before heading on up.

Weather permitting we will take the usual the route up Uetliberg, enjoy the view for a few minutes, and then take the Antenna trail or perhaps another trail back down.

The meeting point is here http://tinyurl.com/5bq6q2

The weather is looking a little iffy so stay tuned here for any change in plans. If the conditions of Uetliberg are too bad to ride on Tuesday, I will post an alternative route on this thread.

All welcome, but make sure you have a helmet and if possible gloves.

Change of Plans!
We will now meet at the Zoo tramstop at 18:45 or at the Bikepark on top of Zuriberg at 19:05. This is because Uetliberg will probably be particularly wet after all the rain the fell over the weekend. If anyone has any questions post them here.

Small Print: We will be riding on singletrails, so minimum requirements are a reasonable mountain bike with knobbly tires and a willingness to at least attempt the trail.
Anyone participating in the EF rides are doing so at their own risk.

Hey Livewire,
I've been up and done those trails in Davos. Well worth the trip. Some brilliant trails and the view isn't too shabby either!

The weather looks ok for tomorrow... Just not sure which side to go to. The trail in Uetli will likely be very wet, maybe Zuriberg will be better. Does anyone have any preferences?

I wouldn't mind checking out the Zuri side again today. It is quite fun and definitely friendlier if things are a bit slippery.

Is it looking like just you and me tonight mate? How romantic.

Zoo it is then... You can cut out the romance though Woodsie!

WE meet at the Zoo for a lap or two at about 18:45 and then we can go down the newly refurbished Adlisberg trail.

I won't be able to make the zoo by 18:45. Probably a bit after 19:00 realistically.

[Running away very fast...]

In that case I'll leave the Zoo at 18:45 just so you can't catch me!

How about we do two meeting times. Zoo at 18:45 or Bike park on top of Zuriberg at 19:05 for all you stragglers.

Sounds like a plan. Can you remind me how to get to the bike park from the zoo. (Also incase anybody else tags along aswell.)

From the tramstop head up towards the top of Zuriberg (as you come up the hill turn left at the tramstop). Keep going up the hill, you will pass a hotel/restaurant on your left. Keep going straight past the hotel for about 100m or so there is a gravel road that veers a little off to the right following the edge of the woods. You should be able to see Uetliberg and down towards the lake on your left. Keep going until there is a T-junction and you can't go any further. Turn right, and almost immediatly left into a narrower walking path. The bikepark is about 50m up this trail.

If anyone thinks they will be really lost or unsure of where they are going PM me.

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Ride 15th July 2008

Hmm, it was touch and go whether I was gonna get there tonight, Uetliberg might have worked for me, Züriberg wont. Never mind I'm off to the UK for a week so I'll have no excuse not to be there next tuesday as my bike and gear will already be in the office from this week.

Have fun

If you can make it to Triemli you can make it to Zuriberg. We will be doing laps around the top for a while before going onto the other trail on Adlisberg. This will give you a a few opertunities to meet up with the group. If you can get to the top of Zuriberg before 7:30ish then give me a call and you can still ride the second trail with us.

If you really can't make it then have a good trip home and see you next week.
