Description:
This is the second of eight regularly scheduled Peninsula/South Bay training rides, to be held every other Saturday, for Seismic Challenge 2.0. We'll slowly add hills and distance as we build to our early October finale, a challenging ride to the San Gregorio coast and back.

This time, we add a few more hills and a little bit of mileage. From downtown Mountain View, we'll head to the Stanford Loop and break off up to Woodside. From there, it's along the very popular cycling route on CaƱada Road to the historic Pulgas Water Temple. From there, we'll go downhill on Edgewood Road and back via Alameda de las Pulgas and around Stanford. Total climbing on this ride is about 2,000 feet.

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

Leaders: Chris Thomas, Tim Huang

RSVPs are requested but not required.
