This is a weekly group ride, alternating every other Tuesday and Wednesday.
Warmup on Valencia to Glen Park, then through the park trails towards Twin Peaks. A steep climb or two, followed by one or two (or three?) laps around the Mt. Sutro trails. Back down to the Mission from Stanyan via 17th St, likely ending at food and/or beer. The most fun you can have in the city on a Tuesday night, and great training for longer night and weekend rides.
Roughly 9-10 mile loop, with 3-4 miles of actual trails. The trails are all legal, including some moderately technical singletrack with switchbacks and exposure.
Bring: helmet, good lights (that will actually light up the trail), and a spare tube (correct for your wheels) at minimum. The trails are mostly easy rolling singletrack and not normally difficult, but this is NOT a beginner ride given the lighting conditions and short technical sections.
Usually we grab beers and something to eat at Zeitgeist after the ride. They have safe bike parking on the inner patio, but it's limited so bring a lock if you can.
Setting a limit of 8 riders, to make sure we can keep the group together for the entire ride. We'll ride at a social pace, with no rider left behind.
First timers, please ride the group's rider responsibility and liability statement:
Hope to see you all out there!
