South Bay/Peninsula #3: Foothills (8/8/2009)

Meet time: 9:30 a.m.
Ride-out time: 10:00 a.m.
Meeting place: Three blocks west of the Mountain View Caltrain and VTA station, in the overflow parking lot at the corner of Evelyn Avenue and Franklin Street. (map)
City: Mountain View
Rain policy: Rain cancels
Category: 2 - moderate pace (10-12 mph)
Terrain: 2 - rolling hills
Miles: 50

This ride is a lesson in pacing yourself. All of the climbing is concentrated into the second half of the ride, and your challenge is to ride conservatively during the first half of the ride so that you'll be ready to tackle the hills.

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.

Leaders: Chris Thomas, Tim Huang

RSVPs are requested but not required.
