Join us Saturday for a double-loop from Woodside!
Meet 9:30 am, rolling by 9:45, from the parking lot in front of Woodside Elementary (on Woodside Rd. 1/4 mi. west of Buck's & Robert's). The two loops can be adjusted for distance and climb as indicated below; cue sheet will also be available at the start. The basic double-loop is designed to be roughly comparable in distance and climb to the Wildflower long course.
Loop 1: 29 miles - 1300 ft of climb. Sand Hill Rd to Foothill to Arastradero (pit stop at Preserve) - Alpine Rd to Portola intersection - Climb Alpine and back down - Return on Portola Rd and Woodside Rd. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/194341448
Loop 2: 26 miles - 1200 ft of climb. Canada Rd to Edgewood/Pulgas Water Temple (pit stop) and return - Whiskey Hill to Portola to Alpine - Climb Alpine and back down - return via Portola to Woodside. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/194346220
- Eliminating the Alpine climb drops 500 ft. of climb and 6 miles from each loop.
- For a longer ride, on Loop 2 one can continue on Canada to turnaround at 92 (adds 7 miles) or continue on the bike path over 280 to turnaround Crystal Springs Rd (adds 9 miles).
Hope you can join us on Saturday!
