One loop actually would end up being around 45 min to an hour I believe. Mike may want to chime in here. A loop would be up Ucon and then down one of the trails leading back to 9. Unless, we got enough people who would be willing to shuttle.
i will have to see, im planning on hitting the gap tuesday night with some south bay people, if that goes through, ill prob come down to uc. im thinking i need to make the south bay rides a once a week thing
I'm down for two loops though. Gotta' make the drive worth while for me, too.
Scott, if you want two loops, I'll hit it up with you. Up Rincon, Ucon, whatever... and then down some of the smoother trails. No aggro frickin' DC, Airborne, or anything else. I'm thinking Sweet-Magic-Carpet-Ness-Leaves.
From lot to top across the fire road, down and back down 9 to where we should park... I say 1 hour if we rip it. But this is a night ride. Night ride involves stopping, shooting the shizzle, and enjoying the peace and serenity of bombing down the hill with blackness in your face.
did a ride last fri night at henry coe park
nuts off cold, lotta fun
2800 vertical, and all those cats were strong climbers
i'd be down to make the shclep from sf, even take a train (if it exists) cuz driving is brutal at that hour
as others have written, make it a decent long ride, so u feel u got ur monies worth, esp if coming from afar
some of the best times of night rides are when u power down at the tops of ridges and chill for a bit
nothin to do back at home 'cept watch tv, surf or sleep
Yea im with you Mike,man this rain is much needed but it sux for the riding.Maybe I should take this chance to rebuild forks which are way over due.And Josh if you want your wheels straightened and trued I can do that to.
Ok so I just got back from a quick UC loop,the trails were really good.Not sure if the weather will hold for the nite ride but if does you guys should go.Mostly sunny and cold yeasterday and only a few showers last nite and into the early morning so not the rain I expected.But it is coming.
Ha ha , yea Im lucky to have a chance to take my little girl to daycare once a week to get in a little ride!And man it was cold, I looked like a steam train puffing up the Rincon trail.It was proly in the 40s this morning when i started.
It's supposed to rain throughout next Monday, so at this point, I'd like to plan on a Wednesday night ride. Jehn's back into her church small group on Wednesday night, which means that Wednesday is an opportune time for us to ride.
UC would be fun, but so would Demo. And yes, the climb sucks, and yes it's WAY colder out there, but Josh... you'd LOVE that ride on your new bike, man. You'd LOVE it.
