Hills R Us | Social Climbers

Update, as of January 1 2020: Both Hills R Us groups - D ("Social Climbers") and D/E ("Fast Group") - have been combined into one ride.

Ride summary, Ride with GPS link, and related information for the weekly Wednesday Hills R Us | Social Climbers ride starting and ending at Shoup Park in Los Altos.
 

Hills R Us rolls promptly on the hour. This is a social ride with regroups; faster riders are welcome to form a separate D+/E group.

April - November:  Meet at 8:45 am for 9:00 am departure
December - March:  Meet at 9:45 am for 10:00 am departure

Ride leaders usually pick the route 1–2 days in advance, so please check on Monday and/or Tuesday before the ride for the route announcement. Download the route, and/or print the cue sheet, ride leaders do not provide printouts.

A selection of routes can be found in the WW Ride with GPS Route Catalog > use tag "HRU".


Please do not park in the Shoup parking lot. Park up the hill, at Lincoln Ave. and University Ave., to leave space for those—especially parents with children—who use the Park while we are out riding.

    Rain today and maybe tomorrow. Thus today's ride is cancelled and rescheduled for Friday at 10AM departure at Shoup Park. The later start will give the roads more time to dry.


    For those interested in a ride on Thanksgiving Guy and Mindy have a pre dinner ride planned for tomorrow at 10AM.

    Tour Around Los Altos/Portola Hills

    It looks like rain for Wed so lets do a ride for rainy days: Quinn Hill, Mora, Blandor, Moody, Footill Park, Westridge, La Cresta 30 miles, 3200 feet. Bring a snack for Foothills Park.

    If Wed is nice I will think of an option to extend this at the start. We can decide then.

    If it is raining on Wed, for those interested we could do it on Thursday and easily finish by noon.

    Steve Chapel ride leader - will be at the start for sure
