MTB Night Ride - Lake Chabot, 7

Join us on this Team Velo Girls MOUNTAIN BIKE ride … at NIGHT!

The fast, fun fire-road trails of Lake Chabot are perfect for a post-work ride.  Trails are mostly wide open and technically easy, making Lake Chabot the perfect spot for a night ride.  There is a good amount of climbing, however, with a rewarding scenic view of the southeast bay area city lights.

We have two loop options, depending on the group -- either the full 12 mile bike loop, which takes about 1.5 hours, or we could cut it short at the 8 mile loop, which is about one hour.

Come out with us to experience this popular park in the dark -- it's a whole new spin on mountain biking!  Women of all ages are welcome to join: you will need lights and layered clothing as it gets very dark in some areas, and may become a bit cold as well.  We recommend a two light system: one headlamp and one bar light, although one good light should be fine.

Trails in the East Bay Regional Park District are open until 10 pm year-round.  The parking lot entrance at the marina is open until 6 pm.  You can also park on the street and ride in.  We meet at 6:00, ride about 10 minutes after meeting.

Hope to see you there!

      Sorry you missed it Jen - but it's confirmed that it is your fault Cristina falls, since she didn't take any tumbles today ;)

    This is our last one of this series! Hope to see you all there -- we won't need lights until after 7:30 so it'll be light enough for most of the ride. :)

    Just realized that this ride will be after the time change, so starting at 5:30 would mean we would almost finish before dark. Either starting later or enjoying the daylight works for me :)

      Ha! yes… that's funny I just noticed that, too! Let's move it back to 6, at least… then we can ride the whole loop to get some dark in? :)
