C-/0.6/62 FOUR FLAVORS OF GRAVEL

  • Sun, August 07, 2022
  • 8:45 AM
  • Burgess Park, Menlo Park
Join Fredo Cirne (walfredo.cirne@gmail.com, 408-931-4133) and Eduardo Colaço (eduardojmc@gmail.com) for a scenic gravel metric century on Sunday August 7.


We are going to cover four fantastic gravel destinations around the bay: Bedwell, Coyote Hills, Alameda Creek Trail, Byxbee.  This ride is a mix of paved and light gravel.  We strive to stay away from cars, even when on paved roads.  Pace is conversational and relaxed, such that we can enjoy the amazing scenery and each other's company.  

We meet on Sunday August 7 2022 at 8:45 AM for a 9:00 departure at Burgess Park in Menlo Park.  We meet at the parking lot at Alma St and Burgess Dr.  Lunch is at Nile downtown.

Now, if you think that 100Km may be too much, this route easily accommodates bailouts.

You can just taste one flavor of gravel (Bedwell) and be done in 19 miles.  https://www.strava.com/routes/2989733171815768464

Or two flavors (Bedwell, Coyote Hills), which takes 36 miles.  https://www.strava.com/routes/2989733402769219260
