C-/4/37 Saratoga to Los Gatos (the hard way)

Rain is threatening for next week and beyond, so let's get up in the hills one more time before winter hits! This is a hilly route, but it will be a social paced ride with frequent regroups. Join  Guy Shuman ( [masked] ) to explore the beautiful far reaches of Skyline Blvd and Summit Road. Starting in Saratoga, we'll climb up Highway 9 at a leisurely pace, then follow Skyline south along the "County Divide". Then we'll descend wonderful Old Santa Cruz Hwy to Los Gatos (there is a short gravel section in good condition) for lunch in the plaza, followed by an easy return to Saratoga. Lunch is at mile 30, so bring snacks and water. Meet at Saratoga High School at10am for 10:15am departure. Directions: Hwy 85 to Sunnyvale-Saratoga Rd. exit, South on  Sunnyvale-Saratoga Rd., Left on Herriman, Right into school. Rain cancels.
