Come out and suffer with me during my training for my Mt. Tam adventure! (Sat Sept 7)
DISTANCE - 15.71 miles. GAIN - 3,398'
IT'S SUMMER: BRING A MINIMUM OF 100 OZ OF WATER.
I bring a full 100 oz waterpack plus a 24 oz bottle with sports drink.
Please be prepared: bring tool kit, pump, tube, and tons of water and food. Drink before you're thirsty; eat before you're hungry.
NO HELMET = NO RIDE.
DESCRIPTION: Up Limekiln to Kennedy down Priest Rock. About 1/4 singletrack, mostly this route is fireroad. Not technically challenging. Descent has some fun monster rollers like a pump track for giants. Beautiful views and nature.
PACE: B = moderate but constant. SHORT regroups. For intermediate level ONLY please. I'm not a technical rider and am not into jumps, logs, etc. I ride to get into the back country and see nature. So I often walk the dodgy bits.
MEETING POINT: Entrance to Los Gatos Creek Trail on southeast corner of bridge over Hwy 17 on E. Main St., Los Gatos. I'll email my cell number the night before so we can find each other. I "check in" on the Meetup app when I'm at the start. Parking: on the street. Have found only 3 hr limit so far but that's enough for this ride.
POST-RIDE REWARD: Icing on the Cake bakery almost across street from ride start/finish. It's so yummy!
