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.

    With a forecast of cloudy skies but no rain, a few of us met at Shoup Park. We reached a consensus to do Frank's Crank. Dave Fitch, being the only one who knew the route, led the way. 21 miles, 2400 ft., no lunch stop.

    The following is an ex-post-facto reconstruction of the ride.

    46 miles, 5800 ft. ACTC goats: PML Page Mill Lower, PMU Page Mill Upper, PTP Portola State Park, OLW Old La Honda West. NB: We descend Old La Honda to Portola instead of Hwy 84! Bring or buy lunch at the New La Honda Market in La Honda. Rain cancels, fog on the coast side changes route.

    This week's route contains a short bike-path connector Google Maps doesn't know about, so it's in 2 parts. 48 miles, 3400 ft. ACTC goats: MEN Mt. Eden/Pierce, PHO Peach Hill/Ojai, SKE Shannon Kennedy. 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.

    Currently (Saturday 10/1) the forecast is for rain Wednesday, so I'm not planning a route. If the situation improves, I'll post a route. Check back here or if you're subscribed via RSS you'll be notified automatically.

    36 miles, 4000 ft. ACTC goats: MEN Mt. Eden/Pierce, SNB Sanborn, 9NU Hwy 9 North Upper. No lunch stop (bring lunch to eat at CDF fire station near Saratoga Gap). Rain cancels, heavy fog or high winds changes route. I'm hoping this keeps us mostly in the shade for climbs, and it'll be pleasant up on Skyline.

    Cue sheet distance is slightly off because Google Maps won't make a U-turn in Sanborn Park where we want to turn around; instead it continues another 0.6 miles down into Lake Ranch Road.
