53 mi, 6 M, 5500 ft

Billy Goat
Mtn Charlie,Summit,Bear Creek,Wrights Station,Skyview Terrace

*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** It might be hot, so we'll start early. Skyview/Terrace, the steepest goat, begins our journey; an early start allows more time to again miss a turn and add a gnarly return. Optional is lunch in Boulder Creek. And skip Wrights Station if you're beat. 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 2.9 miles and park on the left side at the park next to the old elementary school, which is across the road from the C.T. English Middle School.

Various mi, 3 LM-M

Billy Goat

The plan is for Mellow LM riders only. Expected to ride together at the pace of the slowest rider. If there is to be a Quick Spinner (QS) option, it will be impromptu. QS may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. Route sheets provided on-line, and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes, Main Street in Los Gatos. Rain or intense heat cancels. Burritos after. Be there ready to roll by six. Typically another cyclist will lead the Quick Spinners option. Blog: http://whineanddine.wordpress.com
