Arastradero Monday ~ Beginner Level Ride

  • Mar 25, 2013 · 4:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's Ride!

This ride will be at a casual/social pace for all to enjoy a fun ride.

Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto, meet in the parking lot by the information sign. Arrive early as the parking lot does fill up. You can also park on the side of the road, watch for the no parking signs.

This will be a nice beginner level ride. Expect about a 60- 90 minute ride. Hope everyone will join me for a fun ride. Bring water and be sure your bike is ready to ride.

RSVPing YES for a ride and not showing will get you moved to the wait list on the next ride you do wish to go on. Please be courteous and drop out early enough to give the more reliable riders a chance to adjust their schedules and attend.

Tires roll at 4:40 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you!

Ride Details
Difficulty as noted in my Mtn Biking guide book is: "Easy to moderate, with smooth wide trails for beginners and a few short single-tracks. On my scale of 1-5, 1 being easy - I will say this may be a 1-2. This is a great place for a good fun workout.

Remember, all riders need to be members of Meetup.com & South Bay Mountain Bike Group. Guest are no longer allowed. All riders need to RSVP as a member.

Parking notice: if you're heading to the park and you see parking on the side of the road, take it and just ride back to the parking lot. This will save everyone time instead of you having to head back down the road to park.


Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. I will post by 2 PM a weather update if we need to cancel.

As event organizer, I will reserve the right to change your RSVP should I feel you should not be on this ride.

***Please remember, a helmet is required for all our rides.***

      Hope you're feeling better today. How's your knee? And your sternum?

      Thanks for asking! I'm feeling better. I still have an ever so slight discomfort in my chest when I cough or sneeze. I'm considering taking the road bike out tomorrow for an easy pace 40+ mile ride.
