About the road rides
The plan is for three options, all will be social, all climb hills. Tweener M option will do some easy sixes, and may try some harder fives at an M pace. QS option may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. The Mellow LM option will not do anything steeper than a four.
Mellow LM riders are expected to ride together at the pace of the slowest rider on the Mellow LM ride with all riders being rested at regroups.
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!
The Road Options
ALL OPTIONS THIS WEEK:
- 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!
