*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** We missed out - Mt Hamilton and Kincaid have now lost much of their cool, green, grasses. But it's still pretty back there and the weather should be ideal. If you have the energy and don't want to drive to the start by Grant Ranch, start your ride in the valley and add either Quimby West or Lower Mt Hamilton. Sign in at our main start at 9:30 in the parking lot on the north side of Mt Hamilton Road, about a quarter mile past the Grant Ranch main entrance. 01-06-2017 09:30:00 01-06-2017 11:30:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 44 mi, 5 M , 6700 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** We missed out - Mt Hamilton and Kincaid have now lost much of their cool, green, grasses.

Wrights Station,Skyview Terrace,Summit,Mtn Charlie,Bear Creek
*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Skyview/Terrace, rated a 6, is pretty steep so we'll do it at the beginning when our legs are fresh. Summit Road in this area has narrow shoulders and lot's of traffic so the westerly bypass option is our safer choice. Then we'll meander south for Mountain Charlie and Bear Creek. Maby even stop for eats in Boulder Creek. If you still have some energy, pretty, and coolish, Wrights Station, can be done last. Directions from Los Gatos to the start/finish: take Hw 17 south to the Summit Rd exit. Loop over the freeway onto Summit Rd. Drive south 2.9 miles and park on the left side at the park across the road from the C.T. English Middle School. 03-06-2017 09:30:00 03-06-2017 11:30:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 48 mi, 6 M , 5500 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Skyview/Terrace, rated a 6, is pretty steep so we'll do it at the beginning when our legs are fresh.

*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** This is our longest Our Favorite Kids ride. It can be the hottest. Today should be cool, but I'm still looking forward to a Pepsi float at the Junction Bar and Grill (my legal council says no alcohol on OFK rides). Cool water is available at the Adobe Springs on Del Puerto Canyon. The green grass may be gone so sightseers can look for snakes, road runners, squirrels bobcats and hawks. A 52 mile short option only does the Mines goats. A long option includes about 10 miles on Del Valle. Call for car pooling to the start/finish. Driving from San Jose take US 680 north; exit rt on Hw 84 (Vallecitos Rd); turn rt at Isabel to stay on Vallecitos (there may be a detour); changes to Holmes; rt on Concannon Bl; rt on Tesla Rd; rt on Mines Rd; lt off Mines onto Del Vallle Rd; park in the dirt area on the rt, 1/4 mile past the intersection. 29-06-2017 09:30:00 29-06-2017 11:30:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 67 mi, 5 M , 6000 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** This is our longest Our Favorite Kids ride.
