Granite Creek,Bean Creek,Mtn Charlie,Redwood Estates
*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** This is a cool three goat climb that starts with a preview descent from the top of Mtn Charlie Rd, all the way to Branciforte Drive in Soquel. You then then turn around and climb back up through the woods, beside the creeks, to the summit. Bean Creek is a new goat that is in a beautiful wooded, semi-urban area. It starts out easy but kicks up at the end. If you want a six (I don't), an option goes down the other side and meanders through Redwood Estates. Drive to the start from Los Gatos via Hw 17. Exit onto Summit Road, northbound. Turn left onto Mtn Charlie Rd and park near the top. As always: all paces welcome; route sheets provided; no sweep; shorter/longer options acceptable. 02-11-2019 09:30:00 02-11-2019 11:30:00 6 ACTC: Our Favorite Kids 24-34 mi, 6 M , 2300-3300 ft: *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** This is a cool three goat climb that starts with a preview descent from the top of Mtn Charlie Rd, all the way to Branciforte Drive in Soquel.

Cienega,Santa Anita
Yet another doctor appointment moves a Tuesday ride to Thursday. Ride from Holister to Paicines via the Cienega Road wine country rollers. Ever ride a monorail? Look for the ECV historical plaque commemorating a monorail train that turned out to be a killer ride - see monorails.org/tMspages/NovLime.html. After Piacines, I will risk a short-cut return on Hw 25, but you can turn east into cattle country for the steeper hills of Santa Anita Road. A steep riding option adds eight miles on Quien Sabe Road. For your return, you can avoid the cars on Hw 25 via a return on John Smith's road by the dump. Drive to the start/finish by taking Hwy 101 south; exit Highway 25; rt at Tres Pinos Rd; lt onto Ladd Ln. Park in the K-Mart parking lot near Ladd and Tres Pinos.
