Description:

We'll wrap up this season's Mountain View training rides with a challenging ride up the Peninsula that has "lumpy" terrain very similar to that which you'll experience on the event.

You'll be treated to amazing views on our final descent to the coast, you'll enjoy the change of pace as you ride through Pacifica, and you'll be challenged by the moderately steep climb up Sharp Park Road back to Skyline. Our helpful ride leaders and SAG driver will be on hand to help you succeed with grace and style.

Strava reports about 5,100 feet of climbing for this route.
