This is a SOCIAL RIDE, good for those just getting into biking and for those who just want a relaxing ride with friends! We will meet at at Central Park on the corner or Millikin and Baseline and head EAST, on the Pacific Electric Trail - a nicely paved dedicated bike path, through Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana and all the way to the our half/way turnaround point - The edge of the Rialto border.
The emphasis of this ride is to get a little exercise and socialize with our friends, old and new. This is not a race, or training ride, and we will leave no one behind.
This is a relatively flat ride that should not pose a problem for most riders.
After the ride there will be an optional brunch/lunch at one of the Rancho Cucamonga eateries.
MILES: 18 round trip with very slight grades and some street crossings.
DIFFICULTY: Easy to low moderate depending on your conditioning and bike riding experience. This is a "no one gets left behind ride", not a race. We will ride at an easy to moderate pace.
