Intermediate Wilder Ride

  • Wilder Ranch 1401 Coast Road Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States

Ride hosted by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz County. Riders with some off-road handling skills and moderately good fitness are welcome on this intermediate level ride. (Our monthly “Slow(er) Ride” is better suited for beginners.) The pace is determined by the riding level of those who show up. Most of the regulars are intermediate and very social. If the group is large, we may split into a fast and slow group. The route and total distance vary, but we typically do about 12 miles and around 1300 feet of climbing. Meet at 10 am at the park sign just north of the tunnel under Highway 1 (see map below). The best way to get to the meeting spot is to park in the Wilder Ranch parking lot, walk your bike through the Ranch area, past the barn, chickens and garden, ride under the highway using the tunnel and you should see the park sign by the cattle gate. These rides are hosted every 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Saturday of the month at 10am. Check their website out for ride updates and more details (they will cancel due to weather).
