Alright, enough is enough. I've heard nothing but great things about Annadel, so we're going. Now I know this is a long haul for most of us but who cares, it will be a good warm up for the drive to Tahoe in June. I'm planning on starting the ride at 10:30am, so we'll have to meet around 8am in San Jose to allow plenty of time to get there and find the parking lot. This will be my first time at this park, so I can't really tell you anything about it other than it's rocky. Like STP on steroids rocky. So be prepared for a technical and fun ride. As I gather a little more info I'll post up a map of our route.
INTERMEDIATE RIDE: We're not hammering the climbs or setting downhill records on this ride. We'll take some breaks including a break at the top to refuel.
TECH 9/10: There are rocks everywhere from what I'm told. Rocks of all sizes and shapes, so be prepared to test your skills
PHYS 7/10: From what I read the climbs here are not crazy steep. The rocks are what make them difficult. We are however riding nearly 20 miles.
Please remember that our rides require a properly maintained mountain bike and helmet. If you have questions regarding gear feel free to shoot me an email and I can make suggestions or point you to an expert in your area.
See you out there,
