Dirty Velo Girls Mountain Bike Ride - Skeggs

*Please note:  This ride was originally scheduled for Santa Teresa - we have changed it to be at Skeggs.  Thanks!

Part of our Wednesday weeknight rides - the second Wednesday of the month we will be exploring the trails of Skeggs (aka El Corte de Madera Creek OSP or ECDMC).

This intermediate level ride traverses some of the best miles of swoopy single track in the bay area.  The park offers a fun array of fast downhill, technical sections, and some healthy climbs to keep your leg muscles satisfied.

Trails:  we will most likely hit Blue Blossom & Giant Salamander... then, depending on time and the group, Resolution or Manzanita.

Women of all ages are welcome to join us!  You need a mountain bike in good working condition, helmet, and water.  Items like knee/elbow pads, full suspension, and snacks might make the ride more fun.

Rain cancels the ride - please check back here for cancellation information.

Parking is in the NEW parking lot right off Skyline (35) - between Kings Mountain Road and 84.  If you want to carpool, post a comment below.

Bathrooms and water are available in the new parking lot (yay!).

Hope you can join us!

-Team Velo Girls.

    I may be the worst ride "leader" ever being at the back of the pack and not knowing the trails since we changed parks from the originally scheduled plan. But it was fun to see all new trails and the cool foggy weather was a definite change from just two days ago.

    I've only ridden MTB a handful if times (all in the past few wks) but have done demo, wilder ranch, Saratoga gap and china camp... How would you compare this ride? I'm getting more comfortable with technical downhills.

    • Jessica

      Good question! Looking at my strava segments... Hah... Demo I did sulphur springs to heli pad, down to the Braille/tractor trailer and then took tractor. Gap I did some peters hill, etc. wilder we went chinpaquin and mailboxes... Any of this ring a bell!? I might hold off this one as I want to demo one more MTB and prob won't purchase until late next week but I'm looking forward to riding with you ladies!

      If you did Tractor and Mailboxes, you will be fine at Skeggs. :) Hope you can join us sometime!
