Strong Intermediate - Memorial Day ride at Stevens Creek Canyon

Location visible to members

Details

If you have Memorial Day off let's get together early for a ride at Stevens Creek Canyon so that we can still have fun later with our family and friends. The ride will start near the intersection of Redwood Gulch road and Stevens Canyon Road. We will climb up Stevens Creek Canyon and enter Monte Bello. From there we will climb the Bella Vista trail followed by the Old Canyon Trail. We will then do the Waterwheel loop near the top, come down the Indian Creek trail followed by the Canyon Trail, and then rip it down Stevens Creek Canyon back to our starting position.

This ride is about 3500 ft of climbing covering about 20 miles so make sure you're definitely in shape for this ride. The first 5-6 miles are under trees and then you'll be exposed under the sun for the entire time we're in Monte Bello. This is a no drop ride but at the same time it is ideal that the pace is a little faster than a normal social ride so that we can make it back for Memorial day festivities.

Bring your bug spray, plenty of fuel and water. Most importantly have your bike ride ready. This ride requires a helmet.

Tires roll at 8am.

I will park at the following google maps coordinates:[masked],-122.09416. This is a turnout on Redwood Gulch less than a 1/4 mile past the intersection posted on this meetup.
