    We'll start at Shoup Park at 9:00 AM, again passing by the former site of Cupertino Bike Shop on the way to Los Gatos... and beyond.  We'll first skirt our way along the hills above Los Gatos (avoiding H9), and then continue on over Kennedy to the Guadalupe Reservoir, and finally to the base of the final North Hicks wall to Umunhum.  Faster riders are encouraged to climb the wall to the top of Hicks before turning around for lunch in Los Gatos.

    We've missed this side of the hill since Big Basin closed last year. Page Mill to Skyline, south to Bear Creek and a lovely descent for lunch in Boulder Creek. Back to Saratoga Gap via Highway 9 - and then you have choices, you have choices!  Descend Redwood Gulch OR Highway 9 - there's road work scheduled for Highway 9, so you may have a delay on that route.

    Smokey skies or rain (we wish!) cancels

    Note:  be aware that there is a 1.5 mile section of dirt on the Los Gatos Creek trail. It has a short steeper gravel section which is easily walkable and then the rest is flat hard packed dirt which is easy to ride.

    Let's go to a different part of the coast. Starting at  Lexington Dam (8:45 meet with a 9:00 roll), climbing Old Santa Cruz Hwy and down San Jose Soquel Rd out to the coast, where we'll head to Corralitos for lunch. We'll return via Eureka Canyon and back down Old Santa Cruz and around the reservoir.

    There is a $6 parking fee (credit/debit card) if you drive to the start and use the parking lot.  There is limited free parking across the road.

    This is a social-paced D ride with regroups; faster riders are welcome to form a D+/E group. Rain cancels.

    Bring or buy lunch at Corralitos Market & Sausage. We'll eat at the park across the street from the store.  The park has porta potties and water.

    Let's go to the coast again, since it's predicted to be toasty on our side of the hill. Since your ride leader has been off the bike for awhile, we'll do a little shorter route this week, starting in Woodside, climbing Kings Mountain and down Tunitas out to the coast, where we'll head up H1 to Half Moon Bay for lunch.  We'll return via Higgins Purisima, Lobitas Creek, and finally, Tunitas Creek.  If you want extra miles, I suggest starting at Shoup an hour earlier and riding up Foothill to the Pioneer for the official start, then riding back to Shoup at the end via Portola.

    Starting time and location:  Meet at the Pioneer Inn at 8:45 for a 9:00 start

    Distance: 50 miles

    Elevation gain: 5,500'

    Ride Leader:  Steve Rempel

    Bring or buy lunch at Cunha's Country Store in Half Moon Bay, or the bakery nearby.  We'll eat at Mac Dutra Park across the street from the store.
