full moon ride in Marin Headlands

Hi everyone, I hope those of you with lights (or who can borrow some) can join us for this full moon night ride on the evening of Tuesday, December 17!  

We'll meet at the Velo Rouge Cafe (address below) and then ride through the Presidio on the Bay Area Ridge Trail to the Golden Gate Bridge, over the bridge and up Conzelman Drive, and then do a loop in the Marin Headlands consisting of Coastal Trail, Miwok, Old Springs, Marincello, Bobcat, back to the bridge on Bunker Road and back to SF across the bridge and through the Presidio. All these trails are legal.

The ride is roughly 25 miles total on a combination of paved roads, bike paths, fire roads, and a little bit of singletrack. None of the trail sections are highly technical, but it is not a beginner ride due to the lighting conditions.

We should get back to SF by around 9:30 p.m. or so.

Please bring a helmet and good lights (i.e. lights strong enough to light up the trail in front of you). We'll ride at a social pace with no rider left behind. 

Here is one good resource for mountain bike lighting:

I am limiting the group size to 10 just because of the length of the ride and my desire to keep the group together from start to finish. Hope to see you for the full moon!

Please read the group's responsibility and liability statement, as always:

      You should totally go, as long as you're confident in the distance + elevation without stopping too much, and you have good lights!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
