Fremont Older - Casual Pace

  • Jun 27, 2013 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Lets Ride!

This will be a easy, slow pace for everyone to get out to ride. It will be about 5-6 miles, just over one hour.

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 fast. Hope everyone will join me for a fun ride. Bring water and be sure your bike is ready to ride. This is a great place for a fun workout.

Tires roll at 6:19 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. RSVPs open 7 days before the ride at 10AM.

Ride Details
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 2.5 level ride.

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.

Directions:
Exit Highway 85 at De Anza Boulevard. (From northbound Hwy. 85 turn left on De Anza Blvd. and from southbound Hwy. 85 turn right on De Anza Blvd.) Travel west on De Anza Blvd. (toward the mountains) for about 0.5 miles. Turn right on Prospect Rd. Then at the first stop sign, turn left and cross the railroad tracks to remain on Prospect Rd. Follow Prospect Road uphill for 1.3 miles, turning left after the Saratoga Country Club, until you reach the preserve parking lot.

Rain will cancel. I will post a weather update here by 8 AM the day of the ride.

***Please remember, a helmet is required for all our rides***

    As a total novice/ beginner, I am looking for a VERY easy ride - Don't know if this trail meets that criterion.

      Steve you'll need to be able to handle some steep climbing. We'll take our time. At the end of the first climb you'll have an idea if you can handle it.

      @ Steve: Fremont Older is one of our easier rides, technically.(meaning the trails are generally smooth and mostly pretty wide) but it does have some steeper climbs, the first one being about a 1/2 mile long, right at the start of the ride. So, if you are looking for "VERY easy," it may not be what you were expecting. However, this is a casual paced ride and we welcome beginners. Hope that helps.
