Description:
To mark my first group ride from Sunnyvale, we're going to do a legendary little ditty that's commonly called the Ring of Fire (a first attempt for your humble leader). The start and end in Sunnyvale give us a bit of warm-up and cool-down time, but we'll be doing (in order of appearance): Moody, Golden Oak, Los Trancos, and the reverse Westridge.

Ride With GPS says about 3,750 feet of climbing; your mileage may vary.

No SAG or sweep, so please know what you're doing. We'll have one scheduled rest stop at about mile 26.

The ride is Caltrain-friendly; first southbound train from SF arrives at nearby Lawrence station (1.3 miles away) at 9:38.

If driving, please park near Kern Avenue, away from the entrance to the store.
