Big Basin just reopened last Friday, the 22nd, so let's go check out the new asphalt on Highway 236. I hear it's smooth as silk, and the weather forecast looks pretty ideal. With limited car access, this is the perfect time to climb through the Big Basin and see how the park has evolved after the fire.
Note that the start is at Monta Vista Park in Cupertino, just like our Zayante adventure a few weeks ago. The park is just off Foothill at Voss Ave.
This is a social-paced D ride (we are after all the Wednesday Social Climbers) with regroups; faster riders are encouraged to form a D+/E group. Rain cancels.
Start: Monte Vista Park, rolling at 9 AM
Lunch: Around mile 30, we'll stop in Boulder Creek for lunch. There is no water in Big Basin, so we'll all need to load up in Boulder Creek for the 23 miles of climbing up 236 and Highway 9.
Ride Leader: Steve Rempel
