OFF-ROAD dirt ride - Coyote Hills Regional Park (Fremont, CA)

Contact:

I don't think we've ever had a true off-road ride before. The subject was brought up recently in the Discussion section and the idea of a ride in the dirt was appealing. I know several of us have gone out on our own and done this type of ride before.

Riding a recumbent in the dirt has some unique challenges and configurations (machine type, tires, gearing, etc., etc.) that work well on pavement may not work well at all when the going is uphill or downhill in the dirt. You should be aware of these challenges and have some off-road experience if you're going to attempt this ride.

Current plan is to meet at the Coyote Hills Visitor Center in Fremont, CA. We'll spend the vast majority of the time riding the dirt roads of the park.

I am committing myself to host a South Bay Monthly ride for the group. Sunday works better for me so they will be on the last Sunday of every month.

For the most part I will be picking a new trail each month. For July it will be the Guadalupe River Trail.
