So I got the go ahead for an evening ride from the wife. I have to make it short and sweet though as this is in lieu of my Tuesday night at the gym. The plan will be to ride up to the top of Todd Quick from the backside then back down towards Eagle Rock. Then we'll head back up to the paved road that leads to the old entrance and back down. From there we'll take the creek trail back to the lot where we started. This is a workout ride so my plan is to keep moving the whole time which means you should know your way around this park fairly well. I'll have a sweep hopefully so we can keep together (plus I'm slow as all heck right now). Total distance will be around 7 miles I think.
NOW THE NITTY GRITTY...
San Jose Mountain Biking is a group riding community. We don't really encourage individuals to come out to our rides that want to do their own ride five minutes after starting with us. We start together and stick together. No one gets dropped period. Of course if you have to bail for any reason, that's fine just make sure either myself or who ever is sweeping the ride knows and makes sure you know your way back to the cars. SJMTB is okay with guests on our rides, even kids, just remember that they are your guests and as such they agree to the same terms of meetup that you did when you signed up http://www.meetup.com/terms/ . We have a very casual and fun attitude about ourselves and try not to take ourselves too seriously, heck we're just mountain bikers. There are very few other rules we follow other than the stick together one...
• RIDERS MUST WEAR A HELMET ON ALL RIDES.
• THIS IS A MOUNTAIN BIKE GROUP... RIDE A MOUNTAIN BIKE (CX IS OKAY I SUPPOSE)
• RIDERS MUST OBEY THE RULES OF THE TRAILS. THIS INCLUDES THE COMMON ETIQUETTE RULES OF RIGHT OF WAY (HIKERS, HORSES, THEN BIKES)
• RESPECT THE TRAILS AND EACH OTHER
• LAST BUT NOT LEAST... HAVE FUN!
I am usually pretty easy to get a hold of if you have any questions, related to the group, or bikes in general (I'm a bit of a bike geek). Feel free to email me directly via the meetup link or @ [masked]
Thanks and happy trails,
