Description:
This long route is a perfect sampler of the many different types of riding you'll encounter during Seismic Challenge. We start by taking a moderate route into Saratoga (no Mount Eden) and Los Gatos. From there, we traverse south San Jose before heading around Calero Reservoir and down the Bailey Avenue hill. We return along Santa Teresa Blvd. and then go back through Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and Los Altos Hills on our way back to Mountain View. This ride has a wide variety of road conditions and traffic levels. Total climbing on this ride is about 2,200 feet with no excessively long climbs.

Leaders: Chris Thomas, Tim Huang, Larry L'Italien, Maggie Vande Voorde
