Faster paced Santa Teresa Stiles loop from Harry Rd.

View event on Meetup.com
Date
Monday, October 7, 2013, 5:00 PM
Venue
Santa Teresa Park - Stiles Entrance

Stiles Loop has fairly technical, rocky downhill. So, I’ll mark this an advanced intermediate for MM scale, given that we will just ride it without coaching or skill reminders.  I’ll bring my knee and arm pads and don them once on the first top of Stiles.

We’ll plan to do at least 1 Stiles Loop.  If daylight holds out, we can do a second Stiles loop before heading back to Harry Rd.
