Peggggy and Sarah at the April 12, 2011 Whine and Dine
- 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!
Be Green, Print Your Own Route Sheet (when they are available)
I am only printing a few route sheets to conserve paper. Riders are encouraged to print your own route sheets before the ride. This is the only way you can be sure to get a route sheet. I am tired of wasting so much paper.
About the Mellow Ride Routes
Tue 2010 Whine and Dine Mellow (aka Pansy) Ride
6:00 PM ish 12-20 mi, 3-6 (yes that is six) LM-M Billy Goats = Various!
My philosophy about this ride is that we have a short amount of time on Earth, so why not stop and smell the roses. Expect at several regroups and nobody (who can ride an LM pace) to be left behind. We will eventually do most of the goats in the Los Gatos area, just not too many at a time. Both rides are social. We will do some easy sixes, and may try some harder fives. Route sheets provided on-line on the blog and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes on 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.
