About 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 real technical, just super fun, great views of the Tri-Valley, ride down Kilkare canyon which offers a shaded beautiful canopy of trees, a few little creek crossings, fire road back up, single track sprinkled throughout the ride, and well... some climbs of course (nothing super steep or long)
This is a very FUN casual ride, at a casual pace, about 10 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.

Skill level: "upper level" beginner, basically comfortable riding 1.5 to 2 hrs, comfortable on non-technical single track. This ride offers fun for all skill levels (-:
