This ride will start at DeAnza Park but divide from the parking lot into two primary groups:

>The Gospels and Revelations will take on the awesome New Millennium Trail, aka Switchback City. This is a terrific loop of almost all singletrack and SPECTACULAR views. This is for high intermediates and advanced riders with ~16 miles of trail, depending on exact route, and over 2500 feet of climb. New Millennium is a bit overgrown, so long socks/shin guards, arm sleeves, and long fingered gloves are recommended to keep the scratches to a minimum.

>The Genesis ride to M*A*S*H is a classic with among the best views in all of the Santa Monica range. This is 11.5 miles and about 1000 feet of climbing as an out and back. The area is a beautiful open preserve with enjoyable sites along the ride to stop and take some great photos/selfies. The majority of trails are fire roads with a few double wide trails.

Temperatures are forecast to be cooler, mid-70s. Don't miss out.

Shepherd MTB Club basics:

All new riders are requested to bring or email a signed waiver for Shepherd Church. You may download a copy from the Church's website: Shepherd Sports Mountain Bike Club (http://www.shepherdsports.org/page/679)

We typically divide into three groups on any given ride:

Genesis: our beginner group. Everyone was new to mountain biking once, so don't fret, we'll have you Gospel-ready in no time. Genesis is a NO DROP group.

Gospels: Intermediates to more casual advanced riders in this group. If you're on a Most-Wanted list, avoid this group as they will take and post online an average of 50 pictures a ride. The Gospels are a NO DROP group and usually go the same route as Revelations but at a more leisurely pace.

Revelations: our A group. Fire, fury, and mayhem. Most of these guys and gals are either on competitive teams, or were, and riding with them will be a sweat-pouring, cardio-pushing, speed & tech fest that will leave advanced riders grinning ear to ear. Revelations is a DROP group, meaning you have to keep up AND not get lost if you can't. By riding with the Shepherd Church Mountain Bike Club I understand and accept the following:

I understand that mountain biking can be dangerous and accidents can result in either injury or death.

I understand that it is my responsibility to determine if my riding skills match the difficulty of the trail we are riding on.

I understand that ride schedulers accept no responsibility for my safety on any ride, and that I undertake any ride knowing that I and I alone am responsible for my safety on the ride.

What to Bring:

Helmet (mandatory)
Water (in bike cage and/or in your back pack)
Snacks or gels for energy
Extra bike tube and patch kit
Bike Pump
Apparel appropriate for trail riding
Protective eyewear
Sunscreen
2-way radio if you have one (will select channel before ride)

Take the 101 Freeway to the Lost Hills Road exit in Calabasas. At the end of the off-ramp proceed south toward the ocean. Park in the lot for Juan Bautist de Anza Park located on the northwest corner of Lost Hills and Las Virgenes Roads. Park along the street if the lot is full.
