Santa Cruz- De LaVeaga- Advanced Beginner/Intermediat­e

I have the day off, and want to ride De La more before it rains too much.

So you've been riding De La as a beginner for a while... and you're ready for more of a challenge? Did you attend the last "graduation from beginner" ride and want to ride those trails again? Then this ride is for you.

Pace- Adv. Beginner

Technical- Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced

7 Miles

We will ride to the top of the world, which involves climbing up over roots and rocks. Then, when we get to the top, we get to practice rolling down short steep rock and root sections, then back up again to ride down an even steeper section.

Put your seat down and go for it! I will help you if you need guidance, as this will be a learning ride, not a charge-through-the-park type of ride.

We will also ride the upper loop that has a fun downhill rock garden, and the usual lower loop with the twin tree root drop.

I wouldn't suggest this ride if you're timid and still learning balance on the bike. Email me if you have any questions.

    Hey guys... what happened? Bad form to drop the ride leader. Feel better Krista! and don't worry tomorrow I'm going to be slow. My five mile commute this morning nearly killed me :P

    He's can hold his own but neither of us are on your level. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

    Take care!

    I want to come play! This would be my first ride with your group and I'm looking forward to riding with you. I'm not sure where the meeting spot is though (De La Viega dirt lot). Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks!!
