There are lots of ways to get to Saratoga, and today we're going to take one of the easiest ones. From our starting point in downtown Mountain View, we'll pass through Cupertino and dip briefly into San Jose before heading up Saratoga Avenue. We'll take a quick rest stop in Saratoga and then head almost entirely downhill or flat back through Sunnyvale and Los Altos Hills. Total climbing on this ride is about 830 feet.

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