Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Walnut Creek Park
Weather pending, we can go out for some biking before, or during the start of the creekathon, and get out on some of the intermediate and advanced trails. By no means do you need to be an expert for this trip, I anticipate having to hike up some of the inclines myself (kudos if you don’t have to), but you should be comfortable with some steeper terrain and a long ride, weather pending, and potentially muddy conditions.
We will meet at Echols side door at 330 and depart for the park.
For the ride, tentatively we will warm up with the The Blue Wheel, a personal favorite, and then head to the front of the park and maybe take Wilkins Way or something else depending on what the group feels like. We will probably finish by 6 or 630.

I am timing this trip to allow people to take bikes from members of Lynn’s trip after they finish when we arrive IF it is feasible. I have one more spot on my car’s bike rack and I will expand the trip as drivers sign up, and I am sure we can get everyone a bike and helmet.
Bring water most 20 oz size bottles should fit the holders, bike shorts if you have them, HELMET
