D-19 Beal's Point - Greg's Return to leading Rides!


Meetup: 5:15pm, rollout 5:30 pm.

Ride Summary:

Terrain: Multi-Use trail. Mild hills @ 5% grade with a few short sections @ 7%.

Rider Level: Beginner/intermediate hill climbers.

Pace: 12-22 mph on the flat; whatever it takes to get up the hills.

Sweep: Regroup at Beals Point, and Aquatic Center parking lot.  We leave the regroups when the last rider is ready to get rolling again.

Contact: Greg:[masked] (text preferred)

Rain or extreme heat (100+) cancels.

Helmet required.

Water Recommended.

Plan clothing according to weather.

Please have the supplies to change a flat tire.

Ride from the parking garage via the trail on the north side of Lake Natoma up to Beal's Point, then back down, across Hazel Bridge, and back on the south side. The hills are mild, but present enough of a challenge to help build technique and confidence for longer more difficult rides. Regroups at Beals Point/Folsom Lake restrooms, and again at the Aquatic Center. We usually stay after for dinner and a beverage on Sutter St. *(Cash preferred).

You should be comfortable riding more than 30 minutes without stopping. If you discover you have taken on more than you wanted, you may turn around at any time.

RSVPs are social commitments. If unable to attend PLEASE update your RSVP.

This month were are going to ride the Bay Trail along the western shore of the SF Bay. This is a flat ride on bike paths with nice views of the bay and cooler temps than an inland route.
