Come join us for a challenging and spirited ride on mixed terrain in lovely Santa Cruz County. The ride will start in the parking lot at Kelly’s French pastry at the corner of Swift and Ingalls street on the west side of the city. Start time will be 9:00 A.M. or soon after.
There will be a place to get food and drink before the big climb. There will be a lunch stop at the summit store after about 3-4 hours of riding. There will be an after gathering of sorts at Rock Lobster Cycles, an open house, if you will. The ride will include some steep climbing on the KOM of the ‘Dolor del culo’ along with some bone-jarring washboard dirt road.
Tires of at least 700×28 are recommended. Two large bottles would be good as well. This will be a fairly difficult ride of about 60 miles. CX or big tire road bike would be ideal but an MTB won’t do you wrong, either. Ride will end where it started as the shop open house is only 2 blocks away.
