When: May 8,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Hi everybdy,

Next Friday is full moon, and I thought of a way to enjoy it by camping in Morgan Territory, from Friday to Sunday.

Now, this idea is just developing, since I have to make reservations with the East Bay Regional Parks office on Monday, and hopefully they have spots available.
The weather looks great for next weekend, with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s.

The campsite is for backpackers, which is ideal also for mountain bikers, since there are no cars around, and to access it one has to ride trails.

If I get the reservation, I will leave Friday morning from my home in Oakland (on my bike). Anybody that wants to depart with me is welcome to do so. We can meet at a specific place on the way to Morgan Territory.

You are also welcome to show up any day at the campsite, since we will do some rides inside the park.
We will be coming back Sunday early afternoon.

The park features open spaces, ideal for full moon, and mostly fire roads.

So I want to get the ball rolling, to see who may have interest.

For more info on the park, here is the East Bay Regional Park website:

Here is a description of the trail that leads to the campsite:
