This ride will be at a very mellow pace.
An optional gathering at a nearby pizza place for rehydration & food may follow after the rides.
This will be an early ride due to such a large demand to ride at the 6 PM time. If you are off work early and want to switch, please do so early enough to allow someone to take the 6 PM time spot.
RSVPing for a ride and not showing will get you moved to the wait list on the next ride you do wish to go on. Please be courteous and drop out early enough to give the more reliable riders a chance to adjust their schedules and attend.
Meet at the Fremont Older Preserve parking lot on Prospect Road in Cupertino by the information sign. Arrive early as the parking lot does fill up This will be about a 60- 90 minute/5-7 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 4:13 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present.
This is a great place for a good workout.
Difficulty as noted in my Mtn Biking guide book is: "Easy to moderate, with smooth wide trails for beginners and a few short single-tracks. On my scale of 1-5, 1 being easy - this may be a 2-3.
Remember, all riders need to be members of Meetup.com & South Bay Mountain Bike Group. Guest are no longer allowed. All riders need to RSVP as a member.
