Shooting the "Gap"

I've got a map! We'll have to work it from there on the fly! This is part of our "Find New Rides" Series. Plan on about 3-3:30 of riding around and such. Anyone with experience/knowledge of the Gap please feel free to bring your trail recommendations w/ you as I've only been there once.

    If the drive there isn't any closer for anyone than Demo/UC, I think we can skip it from here in out. Thoughts?

      Cool. So we'll try Monte Bello, but for the most part check The Gap off our list.

      Monte bello was the valley on the right of us( as we were moving away from the car , on the ridge) so its virtually that same area/ type trails. If we had more time , we could have dropped down to monte bello, after horseshoe lake. I like the gap for linking all those parks along hwy 35. Although its not all built up and freeride specific, like Uc and demo, that whole area is awesome for doing some epic , 5k + loops , without ever having to do the same trail again. ... Uc and Demo are great riding, but I LOVE the fact the we have so many options to choose from, here in the southbay. Let's keep mixing it up. There's something about not knowing what's around the next corner that keeps me wanting to ride more and more.

    The Gap is a little un-impressive compared to Demo

      Most trails in general are not at Demo's standard. The Gap is a good place to get in miles, and the drive is not as far for people central valley and up the peninsula. Demo is the big show.

    If we want some torture, there's always the Grizzly Flats to Table Mountain loop :). We pretty much rode all the trails out there that one time with SJ MTBers (Dave), unless you have some new ones on this map you speak of.

      I say lets do it and see what happens! We always seems to work it out one was or another.

      If nothing else, you/we can ride Skeggs again. I rode there last night. Seems like there is a lot to explore.

    Hey Cort, thanks for the continued invites. Maybe one day I'll hook up with you guys. You do some nice rides.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
