Social Climbers   April - November:  Meet at 8:45 am for 9:00 departure

Sortable collection of Hills R Us routes, by Steve Chapel.

Ride leaders usually pick the route 1–2 days in advance, so please check on Monday and/or Tuesday before the ride for the route announcement. If you'd prefer to receive automatic notifications of updates to this blog (which does NOT include comments added to blog entries), click on the "RSS" icon next to the title of this page. What you need to do after that varies widely depending on your computer and its configuration. It may all be taken care of auto-magically, or you may have to do a bit of work. Just remember that the frequency of updates is pretty low—weekly, sometime from Sunday to Tuesday before the ride, so you could almost as conveniently just visit this blog.

As of June 1, 2016, please do not park in the Shoup parking lot. Park up the hill from Shoup at Lincoln Ave and University Ave to leave space for those—especially parents with children—who use the Park while we are out riding.

    This ride is what Dave Fitch has dubbed "Mad Mike's Monster Mash", cobbling together a series of steep leg and lung busters: Crestview the steep way, Melendy, Hastings Drive (from Ralston/Alameda to Club/Crestview), Springdale (Cordilleras to Lakeview), Sylvan to the Redwood City Cross, then a detour to climb Woodside Drive from Fernside on the way back to Alameda dlP. ACTC goats: CRV Crestview, MEL Melendy. 46 Miles, 4900 ft. No lunch stop (bring lunch with you). Rain cancels.

    This week's route contains a short bike-path connector Google Maps doesn't know about, so it's in 2 parts. 52 miles, 5137 ft.  Lunch is at about mile 30 at the Los Gatos Town Plaza Park, so it'll be late, around 1:30-2 pm. The post lunch route meanders through Monte Sereno/Saratoga but we could shorten it by 2-3 miles by taking Hwy 9 to Saratoga-Sunnyvale Rd instead.

    Please Note Start Time is now 10:00/10:15
