MECCA Fall Festival at the Wedge


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The MECCA bike club recently finished its riding season with their Fall Festival ride. They have been involved in rides including their annual spring ride and rides in the community celebrations around the county. The Fall Festival at the Wedge is in its sixth year. From the beginning, the Festivals have been geared to a wide-range of mountain biking enthusiasts - from the novice to the seasoned; from the occasional to the frequent; from the single rider to the family of riders; and from the rider whose sole interest is the picturesque surroundings to the rider whose sole interest is in the merits of the bike. Rides vary in degree of difficulty, each offering a different perspective of the beautiful San Rafael Swell. There really is a ride for every interest.

The Festivals provide not just a biking experience but opportunities to learn of others' interest in riding - whether it's during a "pit stop" along a ride, the evening-before-the-rides pasta dinner and drawing or during the after-the-rides Dutch-oven cookout and stories around the campfire - there's time to learn from others.

When you ride the unfamiliar, you'll want to be guided through the experience. MECCA club members take pride in "pampering" their Festival guests. Got a question about some aspect of the event (When's lunch? Why does my bike....? How much further until we get there? What's that formation called? Where can I buy supplies?), a club member will be identifiable and not too far away. Also not too far away are the "sag wagons" with emergency personnel and supplies (they're also there to give you a lift if you tire before the end of the planned ride). The club even provides an "on-duty" mechanic for minor bike fixes.

Bikers gathered at the Wedge for rides of varying difficulties. They aet a spaghetti dinner and also a Dutch oven dinner. Breakfasts were also provided by the club.
