David's Wednesday night rides... Fremont Older (Beginner ride)

David's

Wednesday After work Rides

 

Fremont Older OSP

 

Let's get out for another weeknight ride out at one of the best real spots for people that want to get in an after work ride.  If you're in the south bay it's pretty easy to get to and features some great fun trails.  The terrain at Fremont Older is not what I would call technical at all, however there are some good climbs.  I'm going to call this a beginner ride so if you're newer to riding come on out.  I'm going to modify our route based on who comes out, but we'll plan to ride up to Maisie's peak then back down to do a seven springs loop.

 


RIDE RATING:

BEGINNER RIDE: Not too fast and not really technical.  There are some good climbs though so this isn't a walk in the park.

TECH 3/10: The rolling terrain is really well groomed and worn in so there aren't really any surprises here.

PHYS 5/10: The first climb out of the parking lot always seems to get a couple people in the beginning of the season.  So pace your self and don't forget to breath.

6 miles

1000ft 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,

David

      It was 'just right', I wasn't complaining, as a new member I had seen it posted as both beginner or intermediate and had concerns about 'beginner', this was a good group. Can any member post a ride or do coordinate. I'd like try some early morning rides like Marlene had mentioned.

    It's been a while since I've ridden with the group, but as always it was a great ride organized by David.

    Sorry those of you that missed us couldn't come out... it was an awesome ride. The dust was minimal and the dirt was nice and tacky. All the Toyon's (2 and 1 twice), plus Maises' and Seven Springs.

    Yesterday's rain should make for amazing dirt this week.
