Slacker ride - Arastradero

Free midweek? Come play with me! I'm flexible so LMK if a bit earlier or later time is better for you.

PACE: intermediate girl. 7 mpg avg speed. Short regroups. If you find yourself more than 5 minutes behind the group, you may be dropped. Please be prepared to ride on your own. Note: If you don't know your average speed, I've been the slowest rider on most of the rides I've hosted on this site so the pace is pretty mellow!

MEETING POINT: Two choices: Bathrooms at Arastradero OR parking lot of the McDonald's at El Monte and El Camino in downtown Mountain View.  I ride from home in downtown MV so if you say you'll be there, at 8:20, I'll swing by the McDonald's or meet me at the start at 9:00.

DISTANCE - Around 10 miles in the park, 12 miles pavement if you start with me at McDonald's. The park's pretty small so longer rides are possible only if we repeat loops.  GAIN - approx 1000'.

NO HELMET = NO RIDE.
