This will be a 4-hour ride going from UC Berkeley up paved roads to Tilden Park, and then riding through various trails of Tilden until the allotted time is up. Expect to be riding from 8am-12pm.
All are welcome on this ride, but those who are newer to mountain biking may find this ride to be too aerobically taxing (in that case, the ride up paved roads from UCB to Tilden may be enough and is a good turnaround point). A lot of the climbs will be steep.
Once we reach Tilden, it will be all fireroads, not very much in the way of technical challenges (only a few areas are mildly sketchy).
We are meeting at the fountain in Sproul Plaza (in front of Sproul Hall). I do not know what the parking situation is like on weekends, so you may need to park in the residential areas further away from campus and bike up. Alternatively, those who know where I live can bike to campus with me.
