This ride takes us from SF to Woodside, climb up to Skyline, down to HWY 1, and return to SF via Half Moon Bay. It will be about 75-80 miles.
There will be one rather long climb on King Mountain Rd. See http://graphics.stanford.edu/~lucasp/grade/kingsmountain.html
Bring the usual - helmet, sunscreen, layers, spare tube, pump, water, snacks, and lights.
We will stop for lunch in Woodside (Roberts Market, 3015 Woodside Road, Woodside, CA 94062). You can bring lunch or buy there.
Pace will be about 13-15mph or avg of 10mph including stops. Regardless, this is a no-drop ride. We will wait and regroup at major intersections and top of hills.
We will try to complete the ride in 8 hrs.
Push-off time will be 8:00am sharp. Please note this is the Sunday that time changes hence this will be 8am Pacific Standard time (ie, after you have changed your clock). We need to start early since the day is shorter now.
