Description:
For our first metric century of the season, we're going to the quaint East Bay outpost of Sunol. We'll take the easy route through Palo Alto to the Dumbarton Bridge and through Fremont. From there it's up Niles Canyon Road to Sunol, and then back via a short climb into the Mission San Jose area of Fremont, with a return through McCarthy Ranch, San Jose, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale. Total climbing on this ride is about 1,550 feet.

Sorry, but due to the earlier start time, you no longer can take Caltrain to get to the South Bay/Peninsula rides starting with this one -- the trains don't run early enough. (You can still take VTA light rail, though, if you're coming from the south.)

Leaders: Chris Thomas, Tim Huang, Larry L'Italien

RSVPs are requested but not required.
