5th Annual ~ Turkey Day Ride at Arastradero

This will be our 5th Annual Turkey Day Ride at Arastradero!

How about a good workout before you sit down and stuff yourself full of turkey! I would like to get in about a 90 minute ride. Are you up for it?

Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto, meet in the parking lot area. 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. You may also use the Park & Ride lot at Page Mill Rd/280 area. This will be about a 90 minute 7-8 mile ride. Hope everyone will join me for a fun time. 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.

If you are on the wait list the day before and you know you will not be able to attend if added the day of, then please change your RSVP to not going. Chance's are someone will drop and meetup with add you up to the RSVP close time. 

Tires roll at 10:13 AM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present. This means, please be there by the meet time, or be a turkey and get left behind!

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 level 1-2. This is a great place for a good workout

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

Rain will cancel. Check this listing the morning of the ride. I will post by 8 AM a weather update if we need to cancel.

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