4th Annual - Monte Bello - *Black Friday* - The Day After Thanksgiving Ride

                                                                                                                             We did this ride the last 3 years and rode all the way into the clouds. It was an event to remember!

Let's Ride!

Come on out everyone, this is a great place to ride and on a Friday afternoon!!! On my scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being easy, I would say this ride will be a "3-4" in places as we will head up to Black Mountain the hard way! 

We will meet at 12:15 at Monte Bello OSP parking lot.
Tires roll at 12:30 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present, please be there by the meet time or get left behind!

Monte Bello is located about a 20 min drive up Page Mill Road near the top at Skyline. If you reach the Stop sign at Skyline, you went too far. It is about 1 - 2 miles before Skyline on the left. Watch for the sign.

Wear a helmet, bring extra water/food, and check that your bike is ready to ride. Also remember to carry an extra tube and a chain master link with you that fits your bike. Its ok if you need help to repair it, at least you will have the items needed to keep your ride going.

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.  

Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. I will post by 9am a weather update if we need to cancel.

    It's going to be another awesome weather day on the mountain. Let's Ride! Be sure to leave early, there will be heavy traffic on 280 according to the news this morning as 101 N is down to one lane in Palo Alto. They are telling everyone to take 280 N. Weather & traffic brought to you by Ray G.

    Just to remind everyone... on my scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being easy, I would say this ride will be a "3-4" in places as we will head up to Black Mountain the hard way! Update your RSVP if needed. Let's Ride!

    Another ride at the park group limit. I guess it really does help to have good locations, great members and an awesome organized group to host all these rides. If you still want to attend this ride, just join the wait list, I am sure some may have to change plans and a spot will open for you.
