Santa Teresa County Park - Intermediate Ride

Santa Teresa County Park

We'll meet at the intersection of Bernal and Heaton Moor (the golf course side of the park, NOT the Almaden side) for a great technical and aerobically challenging pre-work ride. The ride should be ~1.5hrs.

Rain cancels.

RIDE RATING:

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL:

This is not a beginner ride, especially if you've never ridden Santa Teresa.  The climbs are tough and require both endurance and skill to clean. This park is full of really great trails with some awesome rocky sections including rocky switch backs and fast rock gardens. We'll ride at a pretty quick pace but will regroup at all intersections.

TECH 7/10: This ride is technical and rocky especially if you're used to riding the other parks in the south bay. The rocks aren't big boulders, however, and all trails can be ridden on a non-suspension bike.

PHYS 7/10: Our climbing on this ride won't be as bad as it can get here but we will hit some of the tough climbs here.

11mi.

1900ft gain

Please remember that our rides require a properly maintained mountain bike and helmet. Water is highly recommended. If you have questions regarding gear feel free to shoot me an email and I can make suggestions or point you to an expert.

 

See you out there,
