Beginner or slower mountain bikers are welcome on the Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz County’s monthly “Slow(er) Ride” every fourth Saturday of each month. This more leisurely paced ride does require fitness and controlled off-road bike handling skills. There is usually an intermediate/advanced group for the regulars and other faster, more experienced riders as well. Meet at 10am at the parking lot at the corner of River Street and Golf Club Drive (see map on their website). Check their website for more info and to confirm ride as sometimes they cancel due to rain.
