Description:
Double Bay Double 2 is coming up in just three short months, so let's have a pre-season get-acquainted ride. You don't have to be a registered DBD2 rider to participate; ALCers, Seismic veterans, DSSFers, and everyone else is invited. (What a great way to reconnect with your ALC11 friends!) Bring your questions about DBD2, and I'll do my best to answer them ... and then go home and register at doublebaydouble.org.

Our route today is not very long, but it's got a few hills -- none of them stupidly steep or long, but perhaps a couple that might be new to you. From our starting point in downtown Mountain View, we'll head into Los Altos Hills and check out the backroads for a few miles before going to Menlo Park for our rest stop and a counterclockwise trip around the Portola loop. After passing through the Arastradero nature preserve, we'll head back into Palo Alto where we'll do one last climb before our easy return to Mountain View.

Total climbing for this ride is about 2,000 feet. Find out more about DBD2 here.

This ride is Caltrain-friendly; the first southbound train from San Francisco arrives in Mountain View at 9:29 a.m.
