Salado Creek (Mountain Bike) [Beginner]

We are mountain biking the Salado Creek Greenway. I expect it will take about 50 minutes to go out and then another 50 to come back. We will be there about 2 hours.  Parking can be difficult at this park sometimes.  Plan on arriving early.

We will begin at the parking lot of Phil Hardberger park.

 

 Anyone who is new to mountan bike riding can come out today and we will ride gently. Once you get an idea what it is like you can decide if you want to go on longer faster rides. Try it.  Everyone was a beginner and had to start somewhere and we all had to build up our endurance.  Also do not be concerned about whether you are slowing anyone down.  We are there to encourage beginners and we will make stops and we will ride slow and its OK.  Don't worry about it.

Beginner ride today.

We will ride at about 6 to 10 mph.


Here is some of my usual stuff:

There are smooth parts and rocky parts and any part that makes you uncomfortable you can walk though it. Make sure you have water, sun block, and wear a helmet. We will be riding for about 2 hours. When we ride we will have some rest stops along the way to let everyone catch their breath. I will only be there only if there are people who RSVP "YES" by the RSVP deadline. The deadline to rsvp is the day before the meetup.

Rain cancels this event.

I will probably be wearing black shorts and a blue shirt. Look for the dark green mountain bike. I will sit on top of the stone tables that are in the center "island" area where the cars drive around. Probably I will be reading a book also. See you at the park.

    We need Mr. P. Flores to record the song by Queen called "Bicycle Race" so that he can play it for us on his speakers.
