Let's Ride!

This is a great way to start the weekend!

An optional gathering at a nearby pizza place for rehydration will follow the ride.

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.

Sunset is at 6:29 PM and should give you a great moon viewing.

Tires roll at 5:09ish or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present.

This is a great place for a quick & fun evening workout.

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.

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 an update here by 10 AM the day of the ride.

    5 stars, Ray. Best full-moon-viewing bike ride I have ever attended. And I enjoyed hearing about the planets too. Thanks for organizing and timing the route sections so well tonight! You're the best!

    Bummer that I got a flat and the replacement tube was no good either. Otherwise I could have caught up.

    Just to remind everyone, with sunset being so early... we must leave on time to get our ride in.

      Are you going to be able to add riders that are on the wait list?

      October 17, 2013

    • Ray G

      @MikeM, that is what a wait list is for. When a spot opens then meetup will add someone until the RSVP close time.
