    The Hills-R-Us ride for 8/14/19 will be: The Coastal Classic.  Rumor has it that both WOLH and King Mountain are closed so if true we will be going down both sides of 84.

    8/6/19 late update: I've just been informed that Montebello may be closed for repairs all August, M–F 8:30am–6pm. If that's the case, we'll substitute Quarry/Villa Oaks, Parker Ranch and Regnart for Montebello: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30774537 (cue sheet: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30774537/cue_sheet), 36.4 miles, 3,700 ft. Same water/restroom stops, but mileages are now 8.9 and 30.4

    Forecast says it'll be cold up on Skyline, so let's do a few climbs we've neglected for a while. No lunch stop, bring snack a/o lunch. Rain cancels.

    leader: Michael Khaw

    distance: 40 miles; climb: 4,300 ft.

    GPS: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30625871

    cue sheet: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30625871/cue_sheet (If it doesn't work, go to the GPS link, click on "More" near the top left, then click "Print cuesheet" from the resulting popup menu)

    Regroups at tops of: Montebello, Redwood Gulch, Sanborn, and Toll Gate.

    1st restroom & water break between Montebello and Redwood Gulch on Stevens Canyon Rd. just past the Mt. Eden fork (~mile 18).

    2nd restroom & water break at McClellan Ranch Park (~mile 33.5).
