Explore the twisty hilly roads of the Santa Cruz Mountains, including some long climbs and wonderful descents. All riders will climb to Summit Road via quiet picturesque Old Santa Cruz Road. B’s will explore some “out and backs” along the summit then lunch at the Summit Store (and B’s can easily take shortcuts to reduce the climbing). C’s, D’s and E’s descend to Scotts Valley for lunch at Erik’s Deli before tackling the Mountain Charlie climb. D’s add Rodeo Gulch, while the E’s take an extended route that adds Corralitos and Eureka Canyon. Rain cancels. Online route sheets/maps/gps.
