We will meet at 12:30 PM in the Grizzly Flat parking lot on Skyline Blvd. This time of the year, we will start later to allow the sun to warm it up some.
Tires roll at 12:44 PM or sooner if all YES RSVP's are present.
Please be there by the meet time, we don't want to leave without you!
There are no restrooms here. Skyline OSP is about 3 miles north and has restrooms.
We will ride south to Saratoga Gap through Long Ridge Open Space Preserve which will take us on Peters Creek and Long Ridge Trails.
This is a great area to ride!!!
Page Mill Road to Skyline Blvd. Then turn left and drive 3.3 miles on Skyline, the parking lot is on the left & right sides of the road. The drive up Page Mill will take about 25-30 min from the 280/Page Mill area.
From South Bay area: Saratoga Blvd through Saratoga, it becomes Highway 9 uphill toward Skyline Blvd. At the stop sign at Skyline Blvd, turn right and the parking lot area is in about 3 miles on both sides of the road, immediately after the Palo Alto city limit sign.
If you're coming from Santa Cruz up Highway 9, turn left onto Skyline/Highway 35. The parking lot area is in about 3 miles on both sides of the road, immediately after the Palo Alto city limit sign.
You have read the past ride reviews and seen the pictures, this is a fun group!!! As always, we will never leave anyone behind, take needed breaks, and regroup often. Plan to ride for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
If your not sure where you are going or think you will be late, please leave earlier. We want you to join us for this ride.
Difficulty Level: "Moderate with a few modest climbs". On my scale of 1 -5, 1 being easy - this may be a Level 2-3 Ride.
Remember, all riders need to be members of Meetup.com & South Bay Mountain Bike Group. Guest are no longer allowed. All riders need to RSVP as a member.
I will post by 8 AM a weather update if we need to cancel this ride.
