This ride is weather permitting. If its wet we ride, if its raining we wont!
IF YOU ARE A NO SHOW OR RUNNING LATE:
CALL OR TEXT ME[masked] if you get lost :) or need to cancel last minute! Often "we all" wait for someone that doesn't show up, so PLEASE text if you can't make it just prior to the ride!!!
IF YOU ARE NOT A PLEASANTON RESIDENT...Tell the person at the gate that you are with Kelli's MeetUp Group and they will let you through the gate (I will provide them a list of names)
Once you are through the Guard Gate, veer left, stay on that main road to the staging area/parking lot.
Intermediate Level Ride. Awesomely beautiful this time of year! A casual pace, about 10 miles (1600 ft of climbing) and about 75% single track. Start out with a 1.8 mile initial climb to the top of the ridge with spectacular views of the Tri-Valley then drop into Kilkare Canyon with canopy's of trees and creek lined trails then back up to a second 2 mile climb. 1 slight technical section with switchbacks. A few small but fun creek crossings. Ride length about 1.5 to 2 hours total hours (ride time depends on size of group and various skill levels of riders). This is one of the easier routes up to the Pleasanton Ridge Park
