My bi-weekly Wednesday rides will strive to find locations suitable for beginner riders and will tend to stay in the East Bay area (with an occasional field trip thrown in here and there to the "West Bay" or South Bay). Now that it's dark out so early, the rides will solely be in the East Bay and will require lights. These rides will either be strenuous but shorter, or moderate in length but less strenuous. I'm open to changing the start time based on people's needs.
THIS WEEK: Take the easy route at Pleasanton Ridge (A/Tech-2/Phys-2/8 miles)! Ptown Ridge is known for being steep and tough, but on the back side of the park is a completely flat trail perfect for total beginners and beginner night riders! This ride also has options for more advanced riders to split off and hit some hills - so come one, come all! Lights are required. See the "Discussion" page for a thread about buying a light.
The map above is not quite right. Once on Kilkare Rd, just follow it all the way to the end. The dot on the map above is not at the end. Park at the end of the road, which is where we will meet before we head into the park. Please bring warm clothes in case it's very cold out!
