David's after work Wednesdays Santa Teresa (Int. Ride)

David's

After Work

Wednesdays

Santa Teresa County Park

 

 

We're headed back out to Santa Teresa.  This time we're going to do my regular ride.  Up Stiles into the park, then up to the top of Coyote Peak.  A quick trip down Rocky ridge then back up Stiles to hit the Switches on the way down.  This is not a beginner ride, especially if you've never ridden Santa Teresa.  The Climbs are tough and require both endurance and skill to clean.  Combined with the early season it makes for a ride that will require few stops in order to complete before night fall.

 

RIDE RATING:

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL: This park is full of really great trails with some awesome rocky sections including rocky switch backs and fast rock gardens.  We'll ride at a pretty quick pace but I'll wait for people at all our intersections.

TECH 7/10: This ride is technical and rocky especially if you're used to riding the other parks in the south bay.

PHYS 7/10: Our climbing on this ride won't be as bad as it can get here but we will hit two of the tough climbs here.  The first is rocky and requires clean lines to clear and the second is just long.

10mi.

2000ft + gain

 

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,

David

    Thanks to everyone for letting me join in on the fun. Hopefully, I didn't hold everyone up too much along the way. I think my nickname for our route yesterday will be: Double Trouble Rubble... :-)

    Thanks for the ride guys. You helped lessen my dislike of STP, but you've also rekindled my desire to build a FSFG whip for a possible winter project...

    Last minute work item prevented me...again. Work is definitely getting in the way of my cycling career.
