**CANCELLED** LDT RIDE: CALAVERAS (New Route) B/4(3400’)/32; C/4(4000’)/41; D/4(6000’)/57; E/4(7000’)/65

  • Sat, February 18, 2017
  • 10:45 AM
  • Milpitas, CA

UPDATE 2/18/17  8 AM: 


While weather is expected to clear by early afternoon, scattered showers are expected to remain, as well as strong 15-20 mph winds through the local hills. The nature of today's ride, with open exposure and steep descents dictates that we cancel for today...

There should be good opportunity for riders to get out for a ride early this afternoon, but the local lower elevations are a better choice...

Current forecast for next weekend is much better, when we will visit the beautiful Marin Headlands.

  • B/4(3400’)/32;
  • C/4(4000’)/41;
  • D/4(6000’)/57;
  • E/4(7000’)/65

Enjoy this scenic route along the Calaveras Reservoir, with eagles and maybe some other exciting wildlife. All routes climb Calaveras then U-turn and climb Felter Road to the top of Sierra Road, where fantastic vistas of the Santa Clara Valley await. C/D/E riders continue through Alum Rock Park to Mt. Hamilton Road and D/E riders climb up to Grant Park (E's to the CalFire Station) and descend via Quimby. There is no official lunch stop on this ride, but CDE riders have a snack stop at 7-11. Bring plenty of snacks and water. Rain cancels. Online route sheets/maps/gps.
