    Santa Teresa Saturday morning ride 08/27/2011

    9:00AM, Saturday the 27th of August 2011, the plan is to meet up at the intersection of Harry Road and Camden for a semi-organised ride throughout the Santa Teresa County Park trail system. No-drop ride. The plan is for a faster group and a slower group. Perhaps I can convince our regulars (including Dion, bigLarry, mboldt, etc.) to make an appearance. What to bring: yourself, bike, helmet, water, food, sunscreen, etc.

    Santa Teresa County Park offers a variety of terrain to hike/bike/horsieride, from casual semi-flats, steep and loose climbs, and technical rocky stuff.

    More information on the park and a downloadable .PDF map can be found here:

    Santa Teresa County Park - Parks and Recreation, Department of (DEP)

    On the last ride, I believe there were 15 people in total, which was a pretty good turnout. Let’s see if we can do it again!

    I am going to try like hell to make it to this ride. Very cool place to ride with some cool riders to boot.

    This all depends on a number of factors if I can go or not

    I was in the slow group last time and walked half of the Stiles climb, I'd say the slow group is pretty slow. Besides its a no drop ride so no one gets left behind.

    I'm in for the ride and will be in the slow group.

    Motorbacon which rout are you taking, if you ride pass Meridian near Kooser and Blossom hill area then I'll join you, I'll be one of the slow ones, maybe I'll bail out again at the same spot like last time, still can not get over the fear of going down the slope, need to work on that, last weekend I rode the Los Gatos creek trail getting up to Lexington res, the way up I can manage but going down the lithe dirt section about 100 ft or so I managed to eat dirt twice, braking did not help, the rear tire slid away from me and I crashed into a bush, went back up and tried the 2nd time with out braking and it was worse, picked up speed in a short distance, could not help but apply brake again and here come the bush the 2nd time, I need help with getting over that fear or some technique to control the bike when going down the slope, I guess it will get better with more Mtb riding under my belt, much different than riding a road bike.

    Perfect! I am going to try to convince my gf to go if I can figure out what is wrong with her bike. Crashed last week at Quicksilver and now it wont change gears properly

    I’ll gladly ride there with you from the Chynoweth @ MUT trail connector if you want to meet me there—approximately 6 miles from there to Harry@Camden. Figure roughly 1/2 hour at a medium-high rate (14 or so MPH average, includes the parallel offroad singletrack section). Say, around 8:30AM-ish? Lemme know before Saturday morning. Plenty of fun hoodlum-esque diversions en route to the trails from there.

    DANG! I'm going to do my best to make it.

    There's a fast group and a slow group. I'll be in the middle group.

    Is the derailleur hanger bent? I've gone through a few of those. About $20 and 20 minutes.
    If you see someone without a smile, give them yours

    I am going to try to join you, but I need to figure out how to rearrange my kids Sat. morning schedules first.

    I will be on a blue Titus, and meet by Blossom Hill trail entrance if I can make it.

    OK, now that I'm coming too, you won't have to worry. This trip, I'll take the slower group around the fun Fortini singletrack rather than straight up the steep rocky Stile Ranch. Those who want can ride Stiles on the way back. It's a lot less steep climbing that way.

    As for speed, let me say you won't need to bring your bike to keep up, but it'll be more fun.

    My wife might join too. She's even slower...

    We'll greatly miss Dion.
    It's not slow, it's doing more MTB time.
