Announcing a new Meetup for San Jose Mountain Biking!
What: Demo Forest Endurance ride... Slower paced Int ride
When: Saturday, July 13,[masked]:00 AM
Where: Soquel Demonstration Forest (SJMTB Start)
Hihn's Mill Rd
Soquel, CA 95073
We're heading out to the Demo yet again. This is going to be my usual two downhill run ride. Starting out from the lot at Hihn's Mill and Highland we'll climb out on the road up to the ridge. Then we'll ride to Sawpit for our first down hill run. After a nice relaxing (long and lame) climb back up to the top we'll hit Braille trail. Then it's just a climb back up to the cars.
This ride isn't for beginners, it would be a difficult ride for even Adv. Beginners. We're not going to be pushing up the climbs very fast, in fact I'd like to keep the group small enough that we can all just chill together and chat about the previous downhill. That being said the downhills trails we're taking have lots of features and steep rocky/loose sections. If you've never ridden demo before this is probably not the best ride to try it on. If you've ridden with the group a bunch and aren't sure if you're ready for this ride just shoot me a message and I'll be more than happy to discuss it with you further.
Expect the ride to last no less than 3 hours, but more than likely more. We're not racing up the hills so it'll probably be a longish day... just like I like them.
We'll see you out there on the trails,
