Starting location and time: Meet at Shoup Park in Los Altos; 8:45 AM for a 9:00 AM departure.
The forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday morning is looking a little iffy, so let's stay on this side of the coastal divide this week. When I tested this ride out a few years ago on a few friends, I called it my "tour of gratuitous climbs and secret passages". We'll do a vertical mile of climbing without ever getting too far from Shoup, should inclement weather chase us back to the start. See the Los Altos, Palo Alto, and Portola hills like you've never seen them before.
