We will meet at 11:15 AM in the parking lot area at the Stile Entrance.
The ride will be advanced beginner, a Level 2.5 for this one. I need to practice riding rocky stuff, and the Stile Ranch and Rocky Ridge trails are the perfect places to do it. We'll go at a casual pace, and take time to repeat sections of the trail when we are in the stubborn "I'm gonna ride this!" mood. Be ready to ride at least one long, steep hill, as well!
RSVPing "YES" for a ride and not showing will get you moved to the wait list on 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.
This is a fun place to ride with some great views of the south bay. You have read the past ride reviews and seen our pictures, this is a fun group!!! As always, we will never leave anyone behind, take needed breaks, and regroup often.
Tires roll at 11:33 AM or sooner if all "YES" RSVP's are present.
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.

Difficulty as noted in my Mtn Biking guide book is: "Moderate with a some modest climbs". On my scale of 1 -5, 1 being easy - I will say this may be a 3 in most places.
