Today we're going all the way to San Francisco ... and back! We'll head through the foothills along CaƱada and Skyline, then along the Great Highway to the Safeway-by-the-Sea. You'll get a good sample of about 15 miles of the traditional Day 1 route, including the climb out of San Francisco and a couple of short segments of freeway cycling. The weather can be anything from warm and sunny to cold and foggy, so dress in layers.

Total climbing on this ride is about 3,800 feet.

Revised route sheet for this ride is here. The location of Rest Stop 4 has changed from the route sheet originally posted here.

Be sure to check the Training section of the ALC website for information on how to prepare for a training ride and what you must and should bring.

Leaders: Chris Thomas, Bruce Der-McLeod, Susan Fish, David Goldsmith, Diana Gomez, Maggie Vande Voorde, TJ Zmucki
