Mellow Group Ride - MGR - Sat 8/9

Join the "Original MGR" - Mellow Group Rides started in 2008!

Meet Place: Chevron, 200 Los Gatos-Saratoga Rd, Los Gatos, CA
Meet Time: Sat, 11AM, KSU 11:30AM 8/9/14 (Please be on time)

Planned post-ride lunch spot: Jakes of Saratoga


Things to know:
  • Arrive with a full tank of gas. We are meeting at a gas station. Easy fill up there.
  • Make sure your bike is in good operating condition. (Chain lubed? Check tire pressure?)
  • As usual we will break into groups depending on who shows up (to accommodate varying skill levels) if necessary.
  • Everyone is expected to ride within their comfort level.
  • Safety is our priority.
  • Experienced riders who wants to ride a mellow pace are always welcome.
  • Volunteers for lead and sweep always welcome and appreciated.
  • We will be making several planned stops to regroup and stretch any sore legs.
  • All riding levels are welcome, Mellow pace required. PM or post if you have concerns.
  • If you arrive after the pre ride speech, you must ride in the last group until the first rest stop.
  • All riders are expected to have a basic understanding of our planned route.
  • We will NEVER have a “A pace” group. Drag knees? No. Find a different ride.
  • You can't ride without getting an 'achievement award'.... Find a different ride.

Route: (approx 75 miles, 2.5 hours seat time + Pit stops)
