With 3 leaders we will split into two groups of fast and slow. I will lead a slow casual paced ride and Marv and Jon will be in charge of the fast paced group.
You can park alongside the road before and after the pullout. I suggest carpooling or at least shuttling up together from Emma McCrary usual parking at PetSmart on River Street or the corner of Golf at Hwy 9. Go early or arrange for carpool in advance with each other.
Climbing, roots, logs, approx. 16 miles- possible last minute changes on route choice/mileage dependent upon weather conditions and energy level of the whole group.
I can't seem to get the map link to work, so here are written directions:
If the dirt lot is full park along-side the road on the same side of the lot just before or after it. If you're familiar with the Rincon pullout on HWY 9 in Santa Cruz- that is our meeting spot.
From San Jose: Take Hwy 17 to Santa Cruz. Go straight toward Santa Cruz and stay to the right. Turn right on River Street-turns into Hwy 9. Go 2.4 miles up and you will see the large parking area on the right.
As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding trails with roots. Extra water, a snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for this ride.
