This will be an easy, slow pace for everyone to get out to ride. It will be about 6-7 miles, 60-90 minutes, and beginner friendly. If you've been riding around local trails like Guadalupe, Baylands, or Los Gatos Creek but want to try some hills and some singletrack, this is your chance to progress. Relaxed riders of any level are welcome, but the beginners will determine the pace.

I reserve the right to cancel the ride if less than 4 people are listed as Attending at the time RSVPs close.

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.

Tires roll at 4:55 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present.

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 level 2 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***

    Beautiful evening to be out on the mountain bike. Had fun and even managed a PB up to Hunter's Point. Woohoo!! Thanks, Michelle, for organizing this ride and for keeping us together and smiling. There were some interesting conversations on this one. ;-)

    Sorry, have to change my RSVP. I injured my foot last week. I've been hoping for it to get better in time for me to go on this ride, but it's still borderline today and I don't want to take up the slot if I'm still not sure. Hopefully someone will see this in time to take my spot!

      Just kidding. It's just nice to have eight reasons to go on a ride instead of one. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
