I'm an advanced rider, 47, and ride a self-built 1x9 hard tail 29er. Here are some tips:
-Leave gears 6-27 at home, you won't need them.
-The longer loops are challenging intermediates.
-If you try the longer loops, you need to be in decent shape or you'll be pushing your bike quite a bit.
-There are a lot of prickly pear, mesquite, and honey locust- flats are super common, be prepared.
-Bring the Camelback.
That's it- have fun!
