Arastradero Monday ~ Beginner Level Ride

  • Jul 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The ride will be at 6:00 PM for this week.

RSVP List Will Open 8 Day's Before The Ride, Check Back At That Time.

This ride will be at a casual/social pace for all to enjoy a fun ride.

The pace will be at a beginner level. I will fill in for Amber, however I will not bring you snacks or play nurse when you fall.

Just to remind everyone, this is a beginner level ride to allow TRUE beginners to get out and not feel pressure to keep up with better/faster riders.

Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto, meet in the parking lot by the information sign. Arrive early as the parking lot does fill up. You can also park on the side of the road, watch for the no parking signs.

This will be a nice beginner level ride. Expect about a 60 minute ride. Hope everyone will join me for a fun ride. Bring water and be sure your bike is ready to ride.

RSVPing YES for a ride and not showing or changing your RSVP after the cut off time will get you moved off 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.

Tires roll at 6:05 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you!

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 - I will say this may be a 1-2. This is a great place for a good fun workout.

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.

Parking notice: if you're heading to the park and you see parking on the side of the road, take it and just ride back to the parking lot. This will save everyone time instead of you having to head back down the road to park.


Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. I will post by 2 PM a weather update if we need to cancel.

As event organizer, I will reserve the right to change your RSVP should I feel you should not be on this ride.

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