Ride the Planet of the Apes!
Planet of the Apes is the old San Pedro Mt Road that was abandoned after highway 1 was opened around Devil's Slide. The road is now a hiking and biking trail and is good enough condition for a road bike.
We'll meet up at the North Berkeley BART and take the train to Daly City BART where we will start the ride. From here we will follow a section of the Bay Area Ridge trail that runs through Daly City residential streets and make our way to Half Moon Bay via back roads totally avoiding highway 1.
After lunch in Half Moon Bay we'll continue on highway 1 for 4 miles and head towards the Peninsula via Verde Rd, Lobitos Creek Rd, and Tunitas Creek Road.
Bring a helmet (required), spare tube, lights, water, snacks, money for lunch, BART and Caltrains. The Clipper Card is good for both BART and Caltrains.
The ride is 55 miles long and has just under 4000 feet of climbing. This will be a no drop ride and we will wait at key points for all to catch up.

Rain or bad weather will cancel the ride.
