Fremont Older Tuesday - After Work (Int level ride)

Let's profit off the daylight saving and do some fun workout at Fremont Older! Fremont Older has smooth wide and sometimes pretty steep trails and a couple of short singletracks. We will cover most of the singletracks and enjoy the nice view of the Silicon Valley from Maisy's Peak.
This ride will be for intermediate riders. Our daylight will be limited so we will have to keep up a fairly brisk pace. Like always we'll wait at the intersections and make a short break at the summit.

RIDE RATING:

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: Brisk speed ride with brief breaks at intersections as needed. Workout effort ride.

TECH: 3/10 the trails here are all pretty well maintained and smooth. There aare a couple tight switchbacks but nothing really challenging skill wise.

PHYS/AEROBIC: 5/10 As stated above there are some decent climbs here to get your heart rate up.

6+ mi.

1400ft. gain


This ride will take place regularly on Tuesday, unless rain cancels or moves it.


Meeting point is the information sign at Fremont Older parking lot at Prospect road. Tires will roll as soon as everybody is there, but we won't wait longer than 10 min.

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

See you on the trail!!!

      Maria, keep pushing, you were right there, I think you will be happier in the intermediate group vs. the beginner group!

    So last night was my first outing with SJMB, to say I had reservations was an understatement. I am looking to hook up with some more riders, but doing an organized ride just didn't seem like my thing. As a new guy, for me meeting in the parking lot was a little awkward, but once out on the trail it was all good. The ride flowed pretty well with minimal stops to regroup, and some welcome stops to enjoy the views. Sonja did a great job leading. She would let the fast guys by on the downhills, but it wouldn't be long before she would quietly pass you on the uphills :-)

    Everybody I had a chance to talk with seemed like good people. Had fun tearing up the downhills with Jim, had fun chasing Sonja on the uphills, and everything in between. All in all, I enjoyed myself and will be back. Thanks, Scott

    David, I will be able to get out from work early today so I will start at 5. I am sure you will catch up at some point.

    March 12, 2013

  • Josh

    Think I'm gonna have to miss this one. Girlfriend wants to watch the sharks game so gonna go for an earlier ride since I'm off today

  • victor

    This morning started off late so I may be late this evening so do wait for me I will catch up

    March 12, 2013

    • Sonja j.

      We can't really wait long as it's an evening ride and it still gets dark early. So, if we loose too much time waiting, everybody will have less time to ride. But you can catch up with us, we will go to the seven springs loop trail and then to Hunters Point first.

      March 12, 2013

      no worries

    March 11, 2013

    • Sonja j.

      I hope you recover quickly!

      March 11, 2013

    • David

      Sorry to hear that Sally. Get better soon.

    After work? Work _a force applied through a distance.

    March 11, 2013

  • David

    So we are officially booked up for this ride. Remember this is an intermediate ride which means fewer breaks and a faster ride pace than what you'd expect on a beginner ride. I'll be riding the SSFish sweeping so if you're in the back you'll likely hear me gasping for air and cursing every climb ;)

    March 11, 2013

  • David

    Looks like this ride filled up pretty quick... It's going to be a great ride.

    March 7, 2013

  • Scott L.

    I have been lurking for a while, but I am finally coming out to ride. Looking forward to it!
