Alum Rock - Boccardo Trail - Advanced Beginner ride

This is a good ride for those who always wanted to climb to the top of Boccardo at an advanced beginner pace - this is not a recreational/social ride - and see the spectacular view of the valley.  We will warm up on a short mellow trail and then start climbing.  Eagle Rock is a fire road, Todd Quick is a gradual single track switch back and then Boccardo is a fire road switch back.  We will stop more frequently so you can catch your breath.  The ride down is flowy and fun.  If you don't make it to the top, not a problem, just turn around as we ride down.  Must be out of the park by 8:15pm.  

Start: promptly at 5:30pm

Distance:  approximately 7 - 8 mile loop.   Might add more miles depending upon the group.        

Bring:  extra tube/master chain link/helmet/water

Parking:  park in front lot or outside in the residential neighborhood and ride in.   

Watch speed/rangers and yield to hikers/jogger/wildlife/cattle 

Email me if any questions.

    I'm interested in joining, but have an appt across town beforehand. If it gets out a little early, would it be okay to RSVP via my phone and head over? :)
