Yearning for some self-abuse? There’s a reason its called “Devil’s Backbone”. This is nothing but hills and definitely not for the new rider or faint of heart. Even the short 24 mile “Lil Demon” will give you all you want.

So suck it up and come join us for this rarely ridden ride. We’ll meet at the Mountain Valley Middle School at 1165 Sattler Road in Canyon Lake (Sattler).

If you’re not up to the punishment but still want a beautiful ride come out and do the bottom loop of the 52 mile ride. If you’ve never ridden River Road, now is the perfect time to do it. It can be done as a short 23 mile out & back or tackle the whole 27 mile loop.
