This will be a very mellow ride, mostly along the coast trail. I just need to get back on the bike. Come on out and join me. 

For those that need to get out on your bike, come on out and enjoy a great place on the coast with awesome views! Bring water and a snack as there will be a chance to take a break to enjoy your ride. 

Meet at 9:30 AM in the main parking lot. There are restrooms available. We will then ride to the tunnel under Highway 1. If you park in the Wilder Ranch parking lot, there is a fee to park.

I recommend to pay the parking fee in support of & our use of the state parks.

Tires roll at 9:43 AM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you.

An optional gathering at a local place for rehydration & food will follow after the ride.

Ride Details
Difficulty: "Easy to moderate, with smooth wide trails for beginners and a few single-tracks. On my scale of 1-5, 1 being easy - I will say this ride may be a 2-3.

Where: Wilder Ranch State Park, Hwy 1, just north of Santa Cruz.

Remember, all riders need to be members of & South Bay Mountain Bike Group. Guest are no longer allowed. All riders need to RSVP as a member.

Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. I will post by 8 AM a weather update if we need to cancel.

    Very nice, mellow ride. I think it is important once in a while to get off the accelerator and just enjoy the surroundings.
