  • Anyone else free during a mid-week day? Come play with me! My wacky schedule is open every Thursday this month so I'm taking advantage of it.

    I ride from home in downtown MV so join me along the way or meet me at the start. At 9:30, I'll swing by the parking lot of the McDonald's at El Monte and El Camino and then at 10:00, the bathrooms at Arastradero.

    Intermediate girl pace.  8? miles in the park, 12 miles pavement.  The park's pretty small so longer rides are possible only if we repeat loops.

     

     

    Note from David B., founder of SJMTB meetup:

    RIDE RATING:

    INTERMEDIATE RIDE: We're not hammering the climbs or setting downhill records on this ride.  However this is a rather long ride so it is not for beginners.  You should be able to ride at a sustained pace for 2+ hours with minimal breaks.

    TECH 4/10: Arastradero is a pretty mellow.  The terrain is rolling with only a few climbs quick steeper climbs.  You should be pretty warmed up from the ride into the park though so they shouldn't be a challenge for an Intermediate rider.

    PHYS 6/10: Normally I would consider Arastradero easier than a 6 but being that the total ride length is 20 miles (note from ride leader: more than half of the distance is on road) it's going to be a little more challenging than normal.

    Hey Winona, my schedule between work and bike light business has gotten wacky too. Want to meet at El Camino @ Castro, or Peet's, same as last time? Barry

      Rains cancels. Don't want to damage the trails. I'll decide in the morning before the ride.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
