With all my flip flopping between NorCal and SoCal forum, looking for out of town organized rides, I completely overlooked that there is a local organized ride here in my backyard. Sequoia Century, put together by Western Wheelers, starts in Los Altos, and goes through Palo Alto, Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, then back to Los Altos. I haven't done the entire loop, but I've done all the roads they will go through.
The century ... actually more than a century ... is 112 miles, and about 9,000 feet of climbing. This will get your heart pumping. Too bad it's not going through Woodside, but I can understand why, after all the animosity between the city of Woodside and cycling.
So many rides on this weekend ... hard to determine which one to do.
