Let's Ride!

This will be our December Wilder Ranch Ride.

If we have a large group again, we will split it up.

For those that need to get out on your bike, come on out and enjoy a great place on the coast with awesome views! Bring water and a snack as there will be a chance to take a break to enjoy your ride.

Meet at 10:15 AM in the main parking lot. There are restrooms available. We will then ride to the tunnel under Highway 1. If you park in the Wilder Ranch parking lot, there is a fee to park. I recommend to pay the parking fee in support of & our use of the state parks.

Tires roll at 10:31 AM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you.

An optional gathering at a local place for rehydration & food will follow after the ride.

Ride Details
Difficulty: "Easy to moderate, with smooth wide trails for beginners and a few single-tracks. On my scale of 1-5, 1 being easy - I will say this ride may be a 2-3.

Where: Wilder Ranch State Park, Hwy 1, just north of Santa Cruz.

Remember, all riders need to be members of & 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 7 AM a weather update if we need to cancel.

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

    Great day at Wilder for South Bay Mountain Bike Group. Lots of fun for those that made it for lunch after the ride. Thanks to all that did show up today, this place is always a good ride.

    Thank you to everyone who organized and/or attended the Wilder Ranch Park ride. It really hit the spot (and gave me an opportunity to get a pic for my profile). I hope to see some of you at future rides. :)

    Best regards!

    Just thought I'd put a note here. I'm driving down from Redwood City so if anyone needs a lift who is along the way let me know. I can take 1 other bike.

    Please make it not rain. Are light showers a game breaker?

    Anyone wanting to Carpool...I have room for one person/Bike.

    Meet at 9 am Starbucks on Blossom Hill/Los Gatos Blvd.

    I do not have any time constraints nor do I want to rush.....

    So if you are in a Hurry I am probably not the best carpool to join....:)
