My birthday! early bird ride / Saratoga to peter's creek, trail !

i like to celebrate my birhtday riding so come out for a biginner advance int level ride the means C & B pace mixed social ride nothing crazy !We'll start up at Hwy 35 and hwy 9 in the big parking lot near the intersection.  From there we'll head out on the Gap trail into Long Ridge.  Saratoga Gap, for those of you who may have never ridden there, is about two miles long and full of fun twisty single track with a few root and rock sections.  When we cross the road into Long Ridge we'll hit our fire road climbs before enjoying some awesome flowing singletrack on Peter's Creek trail.  Some of the climbs are a bit tough but we'll wait for people at the intersections. tires roll at no later then 9 am !


RIDE rate! biginner advance int  LEVEL- rocks, roots! resting if we need to or at intersections where we regroup.

DISTANCE - 10 miles round trip.

GAIN - 1500 ft. or so... nothing crazy but a little more than say Fremont Older, as far as climbing goes.

FUN -10 / 10 hey!!!! it's a mountain bike ride with some awesome single track.


Please remember that all of our rides with San Jose Mtb require a helmet and properly working mountain bike.  If you have any questions about other gear to bring feel free to contact either myself, or any of the organizers.  We're always willing to give recommendations on good gear.


See you out there !! gregorio

    Hi, hope this isn't a silly question, but what is "biginner advance int" level? Do you mean all three levels, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced are included? Or is this some sort of separate category? Thanks!

      Winona I think its supposed to be adv. Beginners and intermediate. Advanced rides are pretty rare round these parts. Races and downhill specific rides would be the only thing I consider advanced.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
