Skyline South 2,Old La Honda West,Skyline North 3,Skyline North 2,Skyline North 1,Skyline South 1

*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** For this week's only Our Favorite Kids ride, we'll do another early start to finish what we started last Saturday - ride all of the more rustic part of Skyline, between Bear Creek Road and Hw 92. Start and finish in the Hy 9/Skyline parking lot. First the route sheet leads us north 14 scenic miles on Skyline to Alice's Restaurant at Hw 84. Since it will be too early for lunch, bring food for later. We will then drop down 84 to climb back up secluded OLH West. At Skyline, a turn south heads us back to the start/finish. The easy riders will head home and the more energetic riders will begin a beautiful southerly 21 mile excursion on Skyline to Bear Creek Road and back. Longer options may start in Saratoga or include a trip to Boulder Creek.

Whine and Dine-Mellow & Quick Spinners

6:00 PM
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:
