SVMTB Halloween pumpkin ride
Hi all, Silicon Valley Mountain Bikers is doing its annual Halloween pumpkin ride Saturday, 10/27. For those that haven’t heard of our pumpkin ride, here’s a link to a YouTube video of the 2009 ride: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYLBYTcgvO0 It is an intermediate Ride starting at 9:30 AM in the Purisima Parking Lot on Skyline Blvd about 2 miles north of Kings Mtn Road. Google map link: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zZg7oOp13U1E.kW0BtXl9wGcM&usp=sharing This is a mountain bike ride of about 20 miles and 2800 ft of climbing. About half of the ride is on paved roads. Maps will be provided. We will ride down through Purisima OSP to Arata's Pumpkin Farm near Hwy 1 and Lobitos, then ride back up to the start with our carefully selected pumpkins. Prizes awarded back at the Purisima Parking Lot for the person bringing back the most weight in pumpkins, oddest looking pumpkin, weirdest pumpkin stem etc. Prizes awarded for best costumes (please keep costumes cycling safe). Panniers, backpacks, BOB carts, pockets etc. can be used to transport pumpkins. Historical record is over 100 lbs in pumpkins hauled back up the hill by one person. Tandems are welcome. If someone does not wish to cycle off road trails, Tunitas Creek Road down and/or back is an alternative. Bring layers, it could be cold/windy in Half Moon Bay. Bring power snack to help you cycle back up the hill. Bring cash to buy your pumpkin. Rain 24 hours ahead cancels the ride. Questions: Linda & Glenn[masked]
