Last minute night ride Pleasanton Ridge

So I sadly have to work on July 4 and the weekend, but am desperate to get in a ride on Friday. So I'm posting a beat the heat Friday Pleasanton Ridge ride. This ride is about 6 miles fire road and 4 miles single track, with some tough uphill singletrack and some mild uphill fireroad. There are minimal obstacles and stunts on the course we will be riding as this is at night.

Lights are required in addition to the usual stuff (ie water, helmets, spare tube etc...). I do have a single set of extra lights if anyone needs.
This is a night ride which can be super spooky, especially on the backside of Pleasanton Ridge, so there will be no drops, and the pace will be adjusted so that the slower riders will always be in the near vicinity (ie we won't just take off, if you are a super fast rider you may find this ride to be slightly slow).


If lack of interest ride will likely be canceled.
