Started riding in July.. have tackled deer park and most everything in Stephens. Can't do those epic >20 mile loops that some of you tackle quite yet, but can put in a solid 15 miles or so. Some climbs still kill me but I like it. Interested in hitting up Mooch this saturday if forecast holds. Will be my first time in there. Any advice on best approach for something in the 7-10 mile range that wont be a nightmare for someone steadily improving skills but still beginer'ish?
