Hills R Us

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.

Meet at Shoup Park in Los Altos. Hills R Us rolls promptly on the hour. This is a social-paced D ride with regroups; faster riders are welcome to form a 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 here 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".

Ride Leaders rotate weekly between Paul Melville (408-257-3626), Don Johann, Cathy Switzer and Jack Jones (650-861-8918)


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.
