LDT RIDE: BERKELEY HILLS
NEW MEETING LOCATION AND ROUTE CHANGES FOR 2014. This ride starts climbing as soon as you leave the parking lot! We’ll climb Tunnel Road, visit Inspiration Point in Tilden Park and climb a couple of the 3 Bears. B and C riders have a short but challenging 400’ climb up Happy Valley Road. D riders challenge “Pig Farm Hill” and Reliez Valley Road. While there are lots of hills, most are not steep and the views are gorgeous. E’s add more challenging hills, including Toyonal Drive with its 20% grade. All routes return via a climb of Pinehurst Road and descent of Tunnel Road. New route avoids the bumpy city streets when possible. Rain cancels.
