Week night ride. location rotates... Saratoga Gap/Long Ridge

Rotating Wednesday Night

After Work

Ride

 

Hey Everyone,

 

This ride is going to be for really strong beginners and intermediate riders.  It will switch locations from time to time depending on what I'm feeling that week.  More than likely the ride will happen somewhere in one of the Skyline region parks, as they're much less crowded on the weeknights.  I also like to do faster rides up at Arastradero and Waterdog lake during these rides.

 

Just remember these rides are no-drop, but we're are trying to maintain a pretty brisk pace.  If you're just starting out riding, this really isn't an appropriate ride for you.  We have plenty of those rides though so there's always something for everyone.

 

All rides with San Jose Mtb require a working mountain bike and proper helmet.

 

If you have any questions at all either message me directly, contact us at Facebook @www.facebook.com/sanjosemtb or drop us a line at [masked]

 

Looking forward to riding with you all,

David Butler

    Just joined this group. I have no idea what level rider I am. I suspect beginner rather than "really strong beginner." I think I will wait for a beginner ride and try that to see where I fall on the scale. Currently I've spent the past two months working up to two hour daily rides on a CycleOps trainer. No data to go with that so I have no idea how many miles I'm riding or how fast I'm going :)

      Fred's Beginner rides are great for conditioning. Easy terrain mixed with a good pace to really get you moving. Lots of our members have greatly improved as a result of his "Beginner" rides.

      Will a rigid frame bike be ok for the beginner rides? Mine has no suspension at all.

    Aww nevermind. My experiments are not going as planned and I got to stay at work late.

      LOL, well I rode Skeggs with a guy on a cross bike once. He did really well until we hit the technical stuff. Luckily Gap isn't as technical.

    Cool. I'm in. Whats our route? Think we'll make it to Horseshoe Lake?

      Not this late in the season. We usually go out to Peter's creek and do a loop then return. About 10 miles total.
