Santa Cruz- Emma to UC

  • This location is shown only to members

We will meet at this parking location which provides clean bathrooms, coffee, and food. We will ride to the Emma trail head and split with faster climbers in front and slower in back. We will re-group at the fireroad. Then up Uconn to the bench in the same sort of fashion. Faster riders are welcome to ride all the way to the bench and wait for us slower climbers, myself included, there!

After these 3+ miles of warm-up climbing singletrack, we will continue in such a fashion that we stop at intersections and re-group. We do our best to stick together as a group and not lose anyone.

Be prepared for climbing in the beginning, root cluttered trails along the way, and multiple log rollovers mid-ride. This ride MAY include a surprise downhill steep section that would be rated as intermediate in difficulty, as I like to add surprise and adventure to each outing at this location if possible :)

Total miles about 16

Pace- advanced beginner to intermediate- I am a slower climber

Technical- Advanced beginner to intermediate

    I'm sick with a bad cold. Sara will be helping me out and I will be in the back if anyone is feeling slow too and wants company in the back especially on the climbs
