David's after work Wednesdays Monte Bello OSP (Int. Ride)

David's Wednesday

After Work Rides


Monte Bello OSP


So this week we'll ride Monte Bello OSP at the top of Page Mill rd.  The ride is going to be an adv. beginner / int. level ride, so we can keep the pace up a bit.  We won't be hammering, and we'll make sure we stop at all intersections but when we're moving we'll be moving.  My hopes is to see people that have been riding some of the beginner rides start showing up for these adv. beginner rides.  So if that's you, by all means please join us.  This ride is going to start at the lot and wind down the hill to skid row trail where we'll climb back up to the top of Black Mountain.  That's one good climb, so prepare for some work.  Then we'll enjoy an awesome trail all the way back down to the cars.  The ride isn't very long distance wise, but it's really fun.



ADV. BEGINNER - INTERMEDIATE: Slightly quicker pace than my beginner rides, but still stopping at all the intersections and taking a decent break at the top of the climb.

PHYS: 6/10 - Mostly due to the climb up Indian Creek Trail.  The rest of this ride isn't really too bad at all.

TECH: 5/10 - This ride is full of sweeping corners and flow.  There aren't really any rocks or roots to get in the way.  White Oak is one of my favorite flowing trails in the Skyline region.

10 Miles

2200ft gain


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 out there,

    Sorry I missed you guys. Also thanks for the offer Daphne for me to tag along with you guys. I had a nice short tranquil ride with me, the deer, and my panting as I climbed back to the parking lot.

      Lol. I thought about going back out to find you guys, but I didn't want to climb back up again. I guess SS does limit you sometimes. But it hurts so good! Haha

    Do I need to put on my 10 speed cassette, or will it be okay if I do some hiking with my biking?

      Given the group size I don't see that happening
