Summer Solstice 2011 riders on Pierce.

On a very hot Summer Solstice 2011 ride a group of cyclists stop and pose for a quick photo on a combined LM-MB Mellow Quick Spinners Whine and Dine Bicycle Ride.

About the road rides

I will be there for this ride and it will offer ACTC ride credit.

The plan is for two options, both will be social. Mellow option will do some easy sixes, and may try some harder fives at an LM-M pace. QS option may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. Route sheets provided on-line, on the blog, and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes, Main Street in Los Gatos, across the street from the Los Gatos Library. Rain or intense heat cancels. Burritos after. Be there around six-ish (I get off work at 5,) we roll around then. Typically another cyclist will lead the Quick Spinners option.

Please print a route sheet if you want one!

Mellow Options

The mellow ride will be ridden in two groups.

  1. Group one is the Mellow-LM, nobody left behind group! The Mellow-LM group that will only do part of the ride.
  2. The second group – the Mellow-M group – will ride separately, faster and further with separate regroups!

Both options will follow the same signup and route sheets.

The Lollipop Ride <- Route Sheet Here
Kathy Buck first led this ride once when I was gone. It has a fun ride with twists, turns but I think no rated goats. Try it, you’ll like it! [Map of ride]

Quick Spinner Option

Quarry Redwood Gulch <- Route Sheet Here
Quarry / Redwood Gulch 24.5 m, 2100 ft (aprox) with some very steep climbing.

Mountain Bike Ride

Do not know the status of this yet. But, I do not think there will be a hike today.

Mellow Option

Mt. Eden/Pierce
24 miles, 4LM, 1522 Feet of climbing, an ambitious ride for a mellow ride, usually saved for the almost longest riding day of this season! We will leave on-time and will keep to pace. “This is the big one Elizabeth!” Be prepared for a longer and a bit of a challenging ride.

Quick Spinner

Saratoga Six
24 miles with 2100 feet of climbing, this ride touches on Pierce, Mt. Eden, Quito and Highway 9.

Mellow Option

Shannon-Hicks-Kennedy
SHANNON FIRST! You have not lived until you have done it backwards. So, this ride is Kennedy/Shannon + Hicks only backwards! This is a good ride with a very hard option! It can be easy or very hard, depending on how it is ridden. Typically this ride will be various paces. I will not be climbing all of Hicks. Some of the hard core riders may want to do all of Hicks and maybe even more! Note the route sheet lists the climb to the top of Hicks but this day’s ride turns around at the switchback where the hard climb starts. The rest of Hicks as an option. If you want to do the option be prepared for a longer and a challenging ride. We will not be there for the option, so please plan to do it with a buddy!
