~Cancelled due to Rain~ Wilder Ranch for Everyone C Pace

  • This location is shown only to members

Let's all get together again for a social C pace ride at beautiful Wilder Ranch State Park in Santa Cruz.

If you haven't been to Wilder Ranch yet here's your chance!

Wilder Ranch offers a little bit of everything for our mountain biking pleasure.

There will be some climbing of fire roads in the beginning and we will take our time with that as it will serve as the perfect warm up. After the climb we are blessed with the singletrack we so desire.

There are some fun and fast single track opportunities that will allow for the speedy people to go ahead of the slower people. We will stop for breaks whenever needed, but will always meet at the end of a section. Be prepared for some rocky and rutted-out down hill singletrack too.

Wilder Ranch entrance is on the left side of highway 1, about 1.5 miles west of Santa Cruz. There is a large turnout on the side of the highway near the Wilder entrance and parking there can save you $10. After you park, you’ll have to go up the road just a bit and turn left to go up into the Wilder Ranch fee parking lot. Paying to park will help support Wilder Ranch. Sometimes I ride my bike in from town as I live nearby in Santa Cruz. We will meet at the pay parking area. Restrooms are available there.

RIDE RATING

PACE: C

TECH: 6 or 7 in some areas

PHYS:5+

MILEAGE: 10-16 miles

ELEVATION: Approx. 1600 feet

As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding down rocky trails. Water, a small snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for these rides. Longer rides will require a bit more in the way of water and supplies.

SJMTB is having a great time riding this year so come out and join us.

With the winter settling in these rides will obviously be subject to location or date changes. That being said the rains haven't really started up yet so lets get out and ride while we can.

    You could call it "get in touch with your feminine side" ride. And guys can show up with wigs and lipsticks and fishnets. We understand, we're non-judgmental.....we got cameras......we know how to load things on youtube! Lol!

    But seriously Krista, the fact that the Ladies ride is not getting much traction, is actually a positive comment on the groups as a whole. Because women feel comfortable going on any ride with this group and don't feel they have to restrict themselves to just women's rides (unlike some other groups). Sooo... hey the more the merrier! You guys don't have the BS marketing. You are genuine. You go beyond "not leaving anyone behind" and actually watch out for newcomers and beginners. That counts for a lot. And people take note of those things and that is why some of us show up for ride after ride. Because in short, let choir sing: "You guys are awesome"! Lol!

      Plus, I also think it's a positive comment on Krista, because men feel comfortable going on a ride led by a female....that's way too cool! :o)..... Ok, now I want $200! Lol!
