Slacker Ride - Mixed Terrain: Up Page Mill / Down Stevens Canyon

The Slacker is back!  Call in sick and come play hooky with me.

INTERMEDIATE level

DISTANCE: 26.7 miles. Elevation Gain: 2486 ft

Up Page Mill Road to Stevens Canyon Trail. Down to Stevens Canyon Rd to Foothill Blvd/Expy back to start.

Riding from Mtn View direction?  LMK and we can meet at the McDonald's at El Monte & El Camino Real.

PACE: moderate but constant. SHORT regroups. For intermediate level ONLY please. I'm not a technical rider and am not into jumps, logs, etc. I ride to get into the back country and see nature. So I often walk the dodgy bits.

TECHNICAL LEVEL: Low/medium. There's gravel, rocks.  Fit riders are fine if they ride within their skill level. A couple of logs but you can walk that. The rest is fire road and smooth trail for the most part.

BRING:

• WATER:  IT'S SUMMER: BRING A MINIMUM OF 100 OZ. I bring a full 100 oz waterpack plus a 24 oz bottle with sports drink. 

• FOOD.  LOTS.  Drink before you're thirsty; eat before you're hungry. Every stop I stuff my face.

• HELMET

• TOOL KIT, PUMP, TUBE

POST-RIDE REWARD: FroYo at Foothill & Springer.

See you there! Winona

MTB to MTB yield etiquette: Let's not run our fellow riders off the trail! Please remember descenders yield to ascenders.

    A buddy (who's not in this group) joined me so I had a great companion for a super fun ride. Weather was PERFECT.

    Hey Winona! This sounds fun. I would enjoy this being posted again on a weekend. No hooky for me on Fridays :-(
