Coyote Creek trail and velodrome

I finally rode the Coyote Creek trail after living in the south bay for so long it is embarrassing to not have ridden it before

I really enjoyed it and the ride and recommend it to all

The trail it self is in good condition for about 99% of it. A couple of washed out places a few weeds and bumps but over all really good.
It is an entertaining ride, lot's of turns and little ups and downs. you have to pay attention. It has a few ups and downs.....but I did the whole thing in the 50 ring so it is not going to be a climber's bit of fun

Interesting and varied scenery...... including getting into agricultural areas.....there was a guy grazing 100+ goats where I turned around. a few visible homeless encampments.

I rode city streets (alma to senter to tully) and caught the trail at the Tully road start, but if you were driving down a good starting place would be Hellyer park.

And as an added benefit you can check out the Velodrome, they were doing juniors training

Am thinking (after I get a little more in shape) of organizing a southbay B.B.B ride here ( Beans, Bike, Brew) start at peets in willow glen, do the trail 30 to 40 miles and beer at Hapa's brewery. Anyone interested?


Life is too short not to ride the best bike you have, as much as you can
(looking for Torpado Super light frame/fork or for Raleigh International frame fork 58cm)

I led a newbie loop ride from Hellyer to Peet's on Cochran many years ago. Nice ride, but windy that day. Got to say, I think it might be a bit boring for most riders. You can hammer it, but you put families and casual users at risk.
