Pillars of Heaven (Intermediate to Advanced)

This is one of our favorite shop rides that heads to the eastern mountains above the Antigua valley.  Its not an all day epic but worth it’s weight in gold.  There are a number of ways to ride this ride and depending on how long and hard you want to ride we can suggest a route.  The default ride grinds out of the Antigua valley either on dirt road (easier) or farm jeep tracks (harder) up through a beautiful old growth forest protected by an enormous farm.  The trail down has some of the sweetest flow of any around guaranteed to leave you with an ear to ear grin
