This is a special edition of HRU, with Shawnery taking the helm for a birthday ride.  It's always the dealer's choice, and Shawnery has a special treat for you - Alba - maybe the most epic climb in the Santa Cruz Mountains. 

NOTE the start at Castle Rock State Park, 8:45 for a 9:00 AM start.  

Parking is $10 in the main lot, but there is free parking just a little ways up the road.  Meet at the main lot for the ride start.

59 miles and 7400' of climbing for the D/E Speedy Group.

55 miles and 6500' of climbing for the C+ Social Climbers (The social climbers will skip the Las Cumbres out and back, near the start).

Make sure and load up with water in Boulder Creek before Alba and Empire Grade.  At the bottom of Jamison Creek, load up again, as this will be the last water before the end of the ride at Castlerock Park.  

Lunch - Bring or buy lunch in Boulder to eat in Big Basin Park.
