South Bay Tour from 92/Canada Road Multi Levels 64mi/+4,600'/Hilly (Dagmar, Margie, Helen)

Time:  meet 9:15AM/wheels roll 9:30AM
Location: Hwy 92 X Canada Road.   Map

Come with us for a South Bay Tour.  This is a rolling route with no single climb exceeding 500' but it still racks up a respectable cumulative total of +4,600' spread over roughly 6 climbs; 71.88 feet/mile Hilliness rating. We ride by Crystal Springs Reservoir, Portola Valley,  Pearson Arastradero, Foothill, Stevens Creek Park, Alameda de las Pulgas; be sure to save a little in the tank for Edgewood climb  at mile 57 followed by a final 4 mile "sweet spot" effort on Canada Road that is flat but can be windy.  After the ride, pack up your bike and let's meet over at Sal's Burgers  just 2.4 miles east at 92 and W. Hillsdale at Laurelwood Shopping Center: 3158 Campus Drive, San Mateo, CA 94403.   Refuel with a milkshake that you can stand a spoon in served in a mason jar; "Broke da Mouth" alert! SF Patty Melt, classic Burger, Kufta Burger of a Mediterranean spiced beef patty, Loaded Steak Fries--juicy pieces of steak, bell peppers, onions and fries piled into a mound of meat lovers' delight, Buffalo Chicken Fries-(that's really a thing, and truly a genius combo) and much much more.   After that it's an easy peasy Hwy 101 drive back home.

Ride with Helen Kwong for an AB social pace ride about 12.5-13.9 mph average for the entire route including the climbs, Margie Baer for a moderate B pace ride 14-16.0 mph average or Dagmar for a BC Brisk pace Leaderless style ride.  Please note that if you ride much faster or much slower than these pace brackets you will likely be riding on your own.  This is not a beginners' ride.  Please be sure you can comfortably bike at 13 mph overall speed  over a distance of 65miles including 4,600 ft of totals climbs.  Please down load the route Route Map to your bike computer/phone or print out a turn-by-turn cue sheet.
