9:45-10:00AM – Riders gather at our meet-up location:
Corner of Edgewood Road and Cañada Road
Woodside, CA 94062
Directions to meet-up location: here
There is ample parking on the side of the road, either on Edgewood road or Caañada road. Unload your Elliptigo and meet us where Edgewood road dead ends on Caañada road.
10:00-2:00PM – 22- and 30-mile group rides, with lunch along the way
Starting at 10am, we will all do the 22-mile route, including a stop for lunch.
We will ride through the San Andreas fault alongside the Crystal springs reservoir, primarily on a paved off-road path, ending at the San Andreas dam where we will have lunch. On the way back we will stop at the famous Water Temple, which designates the site where the pure Hetch Hetchy water from Yosemite reaches the Crystal Springs reservoir, providing drinking water to San Francisco and other nearby cities. There will be some gentle slopes and a total of 1000 feet of climbing.
After returning to the start, Dan will lead interested riders for 8 additional miles to yield a 30-mile ride with 1500′ of elevation gain.
Strava route for the 22-mile ride: here
Riders should pack a lunch. We will picnic at the San Andreas reservoir/dam at the midpoint of the ride
