Best of Demo via Aptos - EPIC - Slow and Easy Pace.

Epic at Demo via Aptos. 

Soquel Demonstration Forest is a location that probably ranks in the top three of the favorites of most mountain bikers around the Bay Area. Its official status is different from most other mountain biking locations around the Bay Area: Instead of being an open space preserve, or a national, state, county, or city park, Demo Forest is a state forest.

We will ride either  Sawpit or Coral &  Braille. or you Coral and Sawpit.

If you still have energy after that, we can do an extra loop.

Ridge Trail - Great Singletrack trail that leads to Corral, Sulphur, Tractor , Braille and Sawpit trails. 

Sawpit Trail - The longest single loop possible at this first-rate mountain biking destination.

Braille Trail - Possibly the most-often-ridden route at this prime mountain biking destination, which traverses the most popular Braille Trail.

Corral Trail. Corral Trail starts out as a sweet singletrack, and turns into a fire-road descent pretty quickly. You can think of this route as the "bail-out option"  or as an option for an additional loop for when you are hungry for more riding at Demo after one loop but you need a shorter second one.

    Nah, a ride is judge by how much fun you have, not how fast you go.
