Arastradero Tuesday - after work weekly ride

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.

If you are on the wait list the day before and you know you will not be able to attend if added the day of, then please change your RSVP to not going. Chance's are someone will drop and meetup with add you up to the RSVP close time. 

Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto, meet in the parking lot by the information sign. Arrive early as the parking lot does fill up. You can also park on the side of the road, watch for the no parking signs.

FYI, my weekly Tuesday after work ride is not a beginner level ride. I will use this as a good workout ride, which means the pace will be quicker and with less breaks.

Tires roll at 6:13 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you, but will!

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 - I will say this may be a 1-2. This is a great place for a good fun workout.

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.

Parking notice: if your heading to the park and you see parking on the side of the road, take it and just ride back to the parking lot. This will save everyone time instead of you having to head back down the road to park.


Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride.

I will post by 8 AM a weather update if we need to cancel.

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

    I will try to come, but don't wait for me. I am driving over from Oakland, so if I am not there, well, that's fine. Thanks. Isabelle

    I have been forced to change my RSVP. We've had a crazy week with our "stuff" arriving from New Jersey and unpacking. Also my car has not yet arrived. Will try and make it next week.

    I've just RSVP'ed for this ride but I'm a bit concerned about holding people back. I've been involved with relocating to California the past few months and my fitness has suffered some as I haven't been riding a lot. Exactly how tough is this ride?

    Ronnie.

      The last few times we've been out we've done over 7 miles and 1000ft of climbing in about an hour and a half. It's a quick pace but we do stop a few times to regroup. There's a few of us who are faster and a few of us are slower. I wouldn't be too concerned about your pace. Just do your thing and I'm sure you'll be fine. If you decide afterwards it's too much you can always bump to the Monday ride if you want.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
