Fort Ord - Saturday Ride

  • Mar 23, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's Ride!

Meet in the parking area at 10:30 AM

Great place to ride when the sand is damp and the weather is much cooler.

This will be about a 3 hour 10-12 mile ride. Hope everyone will join me for a fun ride. Bring water and be sure your bike is ready to ride.
Tires roll at 10:36 AM present or not. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you!

Ride Details:
There are some fun cross country single track trails here. Nothing really technical but getting your speed up on some of the the twisty singletracks is a blast starting at Creekside parking lot. Easy to moderate, with smooth wide trails and single-tracks. On my scale of 1-5, 1 being easy - I will say this may be a 2-3 level. This should be a great place for a good fun workout. I plan to ride around 10 miles.

Directions: There are a few ways to go.

Take Highway 1 South from Santa Cruz.

Left onto Merrit St. and continue onto CA-183S.

CA-183S to the South Davis Road exit.

Turn left onto Reservation Road.

Turn right onto Portola Road.

Continue to Creekside Terrace to the end.

Or this way.

Take Highway 1 South from Santa Cruz.

    Awesome day at Fort Ord today with a fun group of riders. I now love going up Trail 49, we should have done it twice! With all the wild flowers out there, how could you not stop to take pictures or even to just look at them. This group makes all the work I put into it worth it. Thanks all for coming along. Let's Ride!

    March 22, 2013

    • Chris

      Just bought a new bike, I'll let you use the wheel from my old bike if you want. It's 26", disk brakes, front is 200mm disk, rear is 180mm w/ 9 speed cassette. Let me know and I'll bring it if it will work for you.
