Rain policy: Rain cancels
Category: 3 - moderate-fast pace (12-15 mph)

Description:
This time, the first half of the ride is flat, so all of the climbing is concentrated in the second half of the ride. (It's a good lesson on pacing yourself!) From Mountain View, we'll go to Santa Clara, then around Moffett Field and Shoreline Park, along the bayshore to Palo Alto, then up Sand Hill and Whiskey Hill to Roberts Market; we return through Portola Valley and the nature preserve. Total climbing on this ride is about 1,700 feet.

Riders from all over Northern California are invited! Southbound Caltrain from San Francisco arrives at 9:14 a.m.

Route sheet for this ride is here.
