Typical members? beginners, casual cyclists who what bike for fun, fitness and social experience. i usually spend weekends biking around to relax so might as well see if anyone else want to join in. Typically morning rides, in and around Fremont, Union City and Newark area, occasionally go out of the area (think Coyote Trail biking from San Jose to Morgan Hill, Bay Trail to Shoreline park in Mountain view, or the Hayward Shores to Marina Park. Road, Hybrid or trail bikes work. My typical ride would be 15-20 miles, slow paced 8-12 mph and no one left behind.
meet at the parking lot on Hellyer Park, check out the Velodome, then ride to Coyote Creek Golf Course (~20 mile round trip) and then back. If everyone is up to it, we can go all the way to the Eagle View Trail Head in Morgan Hill (34 mile RT). Trail is all paved but an upward slope as we go towards Morgan Hill.
