Came here last year and had a blast, decided short notice to come back this year. Tsali is so much fun, plenty of climbs and downhills. Rode 45 miles in 4 days. Will be back next year!

We did the two loops that were open to bikers the day we arrived and we had a great time. Some big climbs and fun downhill sections. Great flow to this trail system and they were in great shape.
