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.

    Since it's supposed to be in the mid-60s and partly sunny out on the coast, while sunny and mild inland, let's do the Coastal Classic. Approx. 56 miles, 5200 ft. (back at Shoup by 4:30-5 pm). ACTC Goats: OLE Old La Honda East, TNC Tunitas Creek. Brief lunch stop at the "no bike shoes" General Store in San Gregorio (bring or buy). Heavy coastal fog or high winds changes route, rain cancels.
