4th of July early morning ride... Saratoga Gap and Long Ridge

Meet up at Hwy 9 and Skyline for an early morning meetup to get the holiday started right. We'll ride out to do our normal Peter's Creek lollipop loop of about 10 miles. The ride should take about two hours leaving plenty of time for other 4th of July festivities, so come on out and join us. The ride will be a melo paced ride for advanced beginner riders. Stopping to regroup when needed. NOW THE NITTY GRITTY...

San Jose Mountain Biking is a group riding community. We don't really encourage individuals to come out to our rides that want to do their own ride five minutes after starting with us. We start together and stick together. No one gets dropped period. Of course if you have to bail for any reason, that's fine just make sure either myself or who ever is sweeping the ride knows and makes sure you know your way back to the cars. SJMTB is okay with guests on our rides, even kids, just remember that they are your guests and as such they agree to the same terms of meetup that you did when you signed up http://www.meetup.com/terms/. We have a very casual and fun attitude about ourselves and try not to take ourselves too seriously, heck we're just mountain bikers. There are very few other rules we follow other than the stick together one...

• RIDERS MUST WEAR A HELMET ON ALL RIDES.

• THIS IS A MOUNTAIN BIKE GROUP... RIDE A MOUNTAIN BIKE (CX IS OKAY I SUPPOSE) • RIDERS MUST OBEY THE RULES OF THE TRAILS. THIS INCLUDES THE COMMON ETIQUETTE RULES OF RIGHT OF WAY (HIKERS, HORSES, THEN BIKES)

• RESPECT THE TRAILS AND EACH OTHER

• LAST BUT NOT LEAST... HAVE FUN!

I am usually pretty easy to get a hold of if you have any questions, related to the group, or bikes in general (I'm a bit of a bike geek). Feel free to email me directly via the meetup link or @ [masked]

Thanks and happy trails,

David Butler

    Many thanks to Rob for leading a great session. He was very patient in dealing with my constant questions- pretty much non-stop for 2.5 hrs(how annoying was that!) I'd be happy to see him lead a ride again.
