This winter I biked with Billy, Michelle, Spencer, and Phil. We rode Tamarancho, St. Teresa, Demo Forrest, Water Dog, and Saratoga. These are all Bay Area mountain bike trails for those who aren't familiar with the sport/area.

Demo Forest was by far the most challenging technically and physically. To do both loops is something like 16.5 miles and several thousand vertical feet of climbing. Thankfully, Alex gave us a ride up the fire road. I even ran into Trevor and Beth there at the end of the flow trail! Flow trails are not natural, but built into the hill side. The are designed with banked turns and rolling features which allow riders to pump their arms and maintain speed through the course.
