San Francisco Bay Trail - New section
by croyle on Sep 23, 2010
Sunnyvale, California, United States
Mountain biking | 6.9 miles
A new section of the SF Bay trail just opened. This section passes Moffett Federal Airfield on the north side and connects to the Stevens Creek trail now. The new segment is approximately 2.25 miles long.I rode from the parking area by the Sunnyvale SMaRT facility, heading west until you reach the bridge at the NE corner of the Moffett Field golf course, where the Don Edwards NWR property begins and the...
Alamitos Creek - Long Version
by croyle on Dec 03, 2009
Alamitos, California, United States
Mountain biking | 10.7 miles
This is the 10.7-mile version of the creek trail ride, starting from the free parking area beside Almaden Lake Park, then doing the southern side trail sections in both directions. The turn-around point is Harry Road.This could be stretched out by crossing Harry Rd. and continuing on the dirt trail over to Santa Teresa Park, especially as I ride a mountain bike. But the paved trail ends at Harry Road.I use this...
Alamitos Creek - Solo Ride
by croyle on Oct 26, 2009
San Jose, California, United States
Mountain biking | 6.1 miles
Quick bike ride from Almaden Lake to where Alamitos Creek Trail crosses Camden near the end of the trail, and back. This was a quick exercise ride and I didn't know how long it would take or what kind of speed I could maintain. Now I know.On future rides where I have a little more time, I plan on using the end of the trail at Harry Rd. as the turnaround point....
Los Gatos Creek Trail Ride III
by croyle on Oct 21, 2009
San Jose, California, United States
Mountain biking | 20 miles
Unedited track of my afternoon ride today, including stops. I found one geocache along the way to mix things up a little.At the southern turnaround point at the Lexington reservoir dam, the route has changed slightly since the two-year outlet reconstruction project there was finally completed yesterday. This makes the trail very slightly longer, but with a much more gradual (and mostly paved) uphill across the dam, instead of going straight up...

Nice easy family bike ride, also the longest ride to date for the 6-year old.
Los Gatos Creek Trail Ride - Slight Return
by croyle on Oct 16, 2009
San Jose, California, United States
Mountain biking | 19.9 miles
Like my previous ride with some minor variation in trails taken, mainly the dirt track on the east side of the creek in LG Creek Park.
Los Gatos Creek Trail Ride
by croyle on Oct 09, 2009
San Jose, California, United States
Mountain biking | 19.9 miles
Starting from the trailhead on Meridian near 280, I rode up to the dam at Lexington, and to a geocache that was my turn-around point.I made a few stops, but not many. Because I'm the world's worst hill-climber, rather than battle my way up the two short-but-very-steep sections by the dam I walked the bike up those, but I did ride the lesser climbs.
Sunnyvale Baylands ride
by croyle on Sep 25, 2009
Alviso, California, United States
Mountain biking | 10.9 miles
Eleven miles around Baylands with some backtracking, stopping for finding/maintaining a few geocaches, photography, etc. The ride started and ended in a business parking lot where I have permission to park.
BART trail ride: San Jose to Morgan Hill
by croyle on Aug 30, 2009
Coyote, California, United States
Mountain biking | 44 miles
A group bike ride from the northern end of the BART trail segment along the Coyote Creek Trail. (Yes, the ridge trail along the creek trail, it seems like an oxymoron to me too.) At the southern end we rode to El Toro Brewing for lunch.Two riders (the smart ones) took the bus back while three of us reversed the route and rode home, for a total of about 45 miles.As usual,...
