Announcing a new Meetup for Bay Area Cycling (Mountain & Road)!

What: Full Moon Mountain Bike Ride, Briones Regional Park

When: December 12,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: We are teaming up with members of the Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay (BTCEB), the second oldest mountain biking advocacy club in the nation, for a fantastic full moon mtb ride in Briones Regional Park. Among the accomplishments of the BTCEB, it is worth mentioning that they have successfully kept the trails open in Mount Diablo and Joaquin Miller Park. Hurray to them!

Their website is http://www.btceb.org/


This will be an intermediate level ride, both in skills and endurance. Most of the trails in Briones are in open space, so the moon light may suffice, but there will be forest sections that will require lights, so headlights and/or handlebar lights are positively recommended. Please be sure your skill levels are up for this type of ride. If in doubt, ask me.


Thanks to Jay Busby for setting up Friday's full moon ride. The info provided by him is as follows:

"Tavan Estates Dr is off of Reliez Valley Rd in Martinez.

From the North
680 South to Gregory Ln exit. West on Gregory for about 2.1 miles. Note Gregory becomes Grayson Rd as you cross Pleasant Hill Rd. Grayson ends at Reliez Valley Rd. Make a right turn on Reliez and go about a mile to a left turn on Tavan Estates Dr. Tavan is kind of a dark T-intersection, if you get to the stop sign at Blue Ridge Dr, you have gone to far. Park in cul-de-sac at the top of Tavan Estates Dr.

From the South
680 North to Contra Costa Bl exit. Left turn at Gregory Ln. (about 4th signal) West on Gregory for about 2.1 miles. Note Gregory becomes Grayson Rd as you cross Pleasant Hill Rd. Grayson ends at Reliez Valley Rd. Make a right turn on Reliez and go about a mile to a left turn on Tavan Estates Dr. Tavan is kind of a dark T-intersection, if you get to the stop sign at Blue Ridge Dr, you have gone to far. Park in cul-de-sac at top of Tavan Estates Dr.

From the East
Hwy 4 to 680 south then probably easiest to use the "North" directions above.

The closest BART station is Pleasant Hill. Take Buskirk to 680 North and immediately exit at Contra Costa Bl. Then follow the "South" directions above"

Anyone in need of further directions, please ask.

Thanks
