Anyone riding Wilder Ranch, Santa Cruz this weekend?
I am curious to know if anyone is planning to ride Wilder Ranch this weekend? I never have
but heard it's great.
Let me know if you are. I can go either Saturday or Sunday.
I am about an intermediate rider.
Man, you missed out this past weekend with Team Social Pace!
MBOSC has their weekly club ride. Saturday, 10am at the sign (it is right after the tunnel as you go under the freeway from the main park area/parking lot). Details here -
Weekly Ride | Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz (MBOSC)
That said, I rode last Sunday and conditions were decent, though a tad dusty/sandy in places. If plans go through, I will probably ride *part* of Wilder sunday, but nothing set there.
We'll be riding from Aptos to Demo to do a few loops and back down the same way. It will be a bit of a long ride but well worth it, at least IMO....

This assessment is the best until now.

If you end up going by yourself, consult the map at the bottom and depending on your interest in length, the single track worth exploring is Old Cabin, Wild Boor and Enchanted.
For me, conditions last weekend will require that I revisit my tires and pressure. I was skipping/skidding too much. I will be riding Sunday but with a n00b group and only hitting a small part of Wilder.
