Lets start a new 2013 & get out for a C-p@ce ride at Alum Rock park this is my favor place for a quick after work ride ! We'll all meet up in the small parking lot near the restrooms at the entrance of the park and start our ride from there the ride will be around 1 to 1 and half.hour depends on the route we decide to take!
Alum Rock is a pretty mellow park as far technical features are concerned, but it offers some great aerobic training grounds for those who want to improve their climbing skills. The views from the top are epic and you'll really appreciate the work you've put in when you reach the summit of whichever hill we end up climbing.
Come on out... All you need is a ready to ride mountain bike and a helmet. I would also recommend bringing some water and a small snack to help you get to the top. The climbs here can be pretty tough.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
