South Bay/Peninsula early-bird ride #2: Mountain View to Menlo Park (10/19/2008)

Join us for the next official South Bay/Peninsula training ride!

Meet time: 9:30 a.m.
Ride-out time: 10:00 a.m.
Meeting place: Three blocks west of the Mountain View Caltrain and VTA station, in the overflow parking lot at the corner of Evelyn Avenue and Franklin Street. (map)
City: Mountain View
Rain policy: Rain cancels
Category: 2 - medium pace (10-12 mph)
Terrain: 2 - rolling hills
Miles: 25

Now that you're back on speaking terms with your bicycle, it's time to add a couple of little hills into the mix, and we'll also add a few more miles. From our meeting point in downtown Mountain View, we'll head directly to Foothill Expressway, where we'll ride to Palo Alto and past Stanford University on our way to Menlo Park, where we'll take our first Starbucks rest stop of the season. From there, we'll head toward Portola Valley and go through the scenic Arastradero Nature Preserve. Then it's mostly downhill or flat back to Palo Alto and Mountain View. Total climbing on this ride is about 1,180 feet.

Riders from all over Northern California are invited! Southbound Caltrain from San Francisco arrives at 9:14 a.m.

Route sheet for this ride is here.
