Description:

Meet your fellow DBD3 riders, or learn about the event and decide whether it's for you, or just come hang with us on the road for a few hours ... any way you slice it, we'd love to have you with us!

Our regular training rides will begin in late July, but here's a pre-season get-together that isn't too easy and isn't too tough. But because DBD has plenty of climbing, yes, we'll do a bit of climbing, but none of it stupidly steep. Our first climb will be Magdalena Avenue in Los Altos Hills, all the way to the top. Then we'll take a gentle spin through Cupertino and do a quick loop up into the Parker Ranch area. After a rest stop in Saratoga, we'll go up Highway 9 as far as Pierce Road before one last climb and our easy return to Mountain View.

Total climbing on this ride is about 1,800 feet. Our ride-out time is late enough that you can take Caltrain to get here in time for the start.
