Tuesday 6:pm Chill Coed Ride! Augustine Bernal Park Pleasanton at Golden Eagle

Tuesday Night Casual Coed Mt Bike Ride! You should be comfortable on singletrack and about 7 to 9 miles of riding - great people, beautiful views, total chill ride!

This ride is at the Golden Eagle Gated Community! Augustine Bernal Park in Pleasanton

IF YOU ARE NOT A PLEASANTON RESIDENT... Tell the person at the gate that you are with Kelli's MeetUp Group (I will provide them a list of names) and they will let you in :)

RIDE DETAILS: This is a very FUN casual ride, at a casual pace, about 7 to 9 miles, 1.5 hours to 2 (depending on size of group and various skill levels), 1547 ft of climbing, both fire road and single track. This is not considered a beginner ride.

Augustine Bernal Park / Pleasanton Ridge - One of the easier routes up to the Pleasanton Ridge Park - The ride is both fire road and single track (some narrow, a few switchbacks). The route we will take is not super technical, just super fun, great views of the Tri-Valley, down in Kilkare canyon offers a refreshing shaded canopy of trees, a few little creek crossings (no water this time of year), single track sprinkled throughout the ride, and well... some climbs of course... nothing super steep or long (1 mile max)

CALL OR TEXT ME [masked] if you get lost :) or need to cancel last minute!

    Hello! This looks like a lot of fun. What kind of bike would you recommend for a trek like this? I'm shopping around. Thanks in advance to anyone who answers! :-)

      I'm back! lol. 5 days later... OK, my height is 5'4", inseam is 31/32" and weight is ok, nothing to brag about but nothing detrimental to biking either. lol. I rode a cheap bike a few years back. Size? It was a 26" men's bike.
      Am I comfortable on single track? Unless it's inches from a sheer cliff, I'll be fine. I do like fire roads, but single track through fields is cool. Technical experience? None whatsoever. I used to road bike a lot, but I stopped due to moving and work.
      So, would you recommend a used bike off craigslist? I've seen a few that say they're well maintained, have front/rear shocks at very reasonable prices. I could take it to the local bike shop for a tune up/check up if needed too.
      Thanks again for input! :-)

    Well darn, I was really hoping to make it tonight, but I'm just not going to be able to get there in time. I should be able to do some Tuesday / Thursday evenings in August and September and beyond.... I've got a helmet light ;) I'd also love to do some weekend mornings if you are up for that!

    There is a small chance I can join you tonight. I'd really like to, but won't know 'till late afternoon. Can you add me to the list and I'll update to let you know for sure if I can come!
