An Old Lady’s Soul Ride – MTB Style

Note: You must preregister to join this ride.

Distance: 40+ miles
Pace: B-ish (moderate, occasional stops)
Terrain: 4 (some steep climbs with some relief)

Bring your mtb, a smile, water and snacks, and let the rest come to you. We’ll enjoy Mother Earth while using our bodies and calming our minds. Plan to spend the day, but if you need to leave sooner, you’ll still have fun.  Let’s start in Fairfax’s Deer Park and venture out on the Pine Mtn Loop, then either take San Geronimo Ridge to Sam Taylor State Park (water stop), or retrace our tracks to Deer Park (water stop) and then head up Sir Francis Drake and then up Loma Alta for some fun on T680 or Fox Hollow. It’s all good! Let’s see where the moments take us, enjoy the day, and be in the moment. 
. This ride will probably be most appealing to strongish intermediate level riders.
. I’ll be out all day, but if you don’t have the time, there are plenty of places to head back.
. Lets make this an LSD ride – Long Slow Distance.  Plan to spend the whole day tripping!!
. There will be some steepish climbing and plenty of rocks. Somewhat technical

Bring water and snacks.
Please check the weather forecast beforehand and dress accordingly.
Meet at 10:15 AM with a 10:30 departure.
