GP Sutro: Wednesday Night Loops

This is a recurring weekly group ride, alternating between Tuesday and Wednesday night every week.

Warmup down Valencia to Glen Park, then up through the park trails towards Twin Peaks. A steep climb or two, followed by as many laps around the Mt. Sutro trails as we can handle. Back down to the Mission from Stanyan via 17th St, ending at food and/or beer if enough people are down. The most fun you can have in the city on a Wednesday night, and great training for the 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 actually light up the trail), and a spare tube (correct for your wheels) at minimum. The trails are easy to moderate and not difficult during the day, but this is NOT a beginner ride given the lighting conditions, pace, and short technical sections.

Usually we get a beer or two and something to eat at Zeitgeist after the ride. They have bike parking on the patio, but it's very 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:

    Thanks. I'll try it at night on my own a few times first.

    Not a technically skilled rider here, as you have probably guessed.

    Hi everyone:

    Does this night ride include the two rocky parts of fairy gates?

      It usually does, yes. We change up the route a bit every time though.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
