2nd quarterly Peninsula Bike Party DOUBLE CENTURY - happens on or near every solstice and equinox.
Our first 200-mile ride was the Around the Bay in a Day Ride on Dec 30, 2012. This Spring Equinox 2013 double century will feature the epic Pacific Coast Highway between San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Slow riders dropped!
Draft route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2224554
This draft route is the most spectacularly scenic, with a detour into the Marin Headlands. But it's also 12,000 ft of climbing, which I think is a bit over our heads.
An alternative route to reduce the amount of climbing would exclude the detour to Marin Headlands and cross the Santa Cruz Mountains on Highway 152 from Watsonville over Mt Madonna, and right now I'm leaning towards that...
