De LaFriday Technical Fun

  • This location is shown only to members

  • The hillside of DLV consists of multiple singletrack loops totaling 8-9 miles intermingling between redwood groves, oak woodlands, Branciforte creek, mixed forests and grasslands. At the "top of the world" aka "Corona Trail"- there's a lookout offering an awesome view of the Monterey Bay and east Santa Cruz.

    Multiple loops in different directions provide variety (and increased mileage) in an already diverse area to ride. Be prepared for rocks, ruts, roots, drops, flowy sections, short steep climbs, off camber and narrow sections with high penalty for mistakes in some areas. There's a short fire road climb for a nice break between singletrack sessions. This park allows for you to gain speed and be challenged at the same time.

    Although small, "De La" offers a variety of singletrack in a beautiful area to practice your technical skills. Definitely worth getting off work early. TGIF! ~Krista

    As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding down rocky trails.  If the ride is relatively short so you shouldn't need too much in the way of supplies.  Water, a small snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for these rides.

    SJMTB is having a great time riding this year so come on out and join us.

    With the winter settling in these rides will obviously be subject to location or date changes.  That being said the rains haven't really started up yet so lets get out and ride while we can.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
