Arastradero - endurance test ride

Test ride at Arastradero. 

We will leave the parking lot promptly at 9:00am. 

if you are curious as to my moderate endurance ride pace, come out and join me for a test ride.  I will be taking you on the same trail as my Thursday night rides but we won't be under time constraints to get back to the parking lot before sunset. if you always wanted to ride the bowls but were hesitant to do so, this will be a good opportunity to try them.     

This ride is for advanced beginnings + who want to build some endurance.  You must be comfortable in climbing up and riding down fire roads, switch backs and single tracks. The trails aren't technical but the park is hilly. This is NOT a beginner ride as we will be in constant motion.  Stops will be a brief to be sure everyone is on the right trail. My Thursday rides are usually an hour long but i'll slow it down if the group starts to slow as this is a test ride.  Expect 8 - 10 miles - no more than 1-1/2 hours.  

As always, you must sign up to ride.  If you sign up, please be sure to answer "yes" to the terms and conditions on your profile page. Helmet and water is a must. 

Reminders:  Riders riding up have the right of way.  Slow down for hikers and joggers. We will stop for horses and wait for instructions.  Be wary of your speed.  Be sure your bike is in proper form. 

if you have any questions, send me an email.

      I was, I tried to ride as far as I could with the tire being low but I got about 50ft and the tire sidewall went POOF while on a downhill. All the air expelled from the tire and I was surfing on the front tire hit a rut and blamo. Torn up my knee but my own fault :-) All good, I put 2 new X-King tires on and hit some trails later that day.

    Wow - what a fantastic morning ride. You all made it so enjoyable and worth getting up early on a Sunday morning. It was nice riding with you Rob. Tasso, it's always a pleasure riding with you. Morey and Louis - you both rock riding the bowls. See you all on another ride soon.

      Louis - come out and ride it and then you can decide whether or not you wish to sign up for my other rides. It'll be fun to have you out on the trails. Some riders are good at climbing while others are good on the downhill. So come and try it - looking forward to riding with you.

    I like that you encourage yielding to pedestrians and equestrians!

      especially there... it's crazy sometimes with horses and hikers.

    Thanks Winona - hoping some courtesy minimizes the presence of rangers.....avoid the $350 : ) Louis - have you discovered how to occupy two spaces at a given time? : )
