    Made it up it tonight with one rest stop near the last right turn before the one lane section. It's harder than Moody but not as bad as Quimby. Talk about creepy, that x-files section with the abandoned vehicles.

    Yea, the last time I went up Redwood Gulch was on the way over to Big Basin. It was supposed to be a social lazy Sunday ride ... but it turned into a 81 mile ride with 8,000 feet climbing!!!

    You'll definitely be faster than me. I'll try to be sweeper on Monday.

    If we do the original route, it's 55-60-ish. But if anyone wants to cut off early, or take short-cuts, it's fine with me ... just let someone know if you do.

    So depending on how I'm feeling, I'm thinking I might ride there from home (21 miles) and then catch a lift home with someone afterwards.

    Ron,

    Is there anything comparable to Tunitas Creek Rd on this ride?

    The day of pain and suffering is nearing.

    I just want to make it clear that the ride will start at ChainReaction at Los Altos at 9:00 am, right?

    So if I show up at the Chain Reaction in Redwood City at 9:00, or the Los Altos store at 9:30, I'm SOL, right?

    I'm thinking I'll tempt the family with ribs instead - they only take 3 hours in the heat and smoke....

    If you're at the RWC store at 9:00, I'd probably make a beeline for Page Mill and start climbing.

    I was thinking of driving the 9 miles to Chainreaction but now you have given me hope and inspiration.
    But I'll gas up the car anyways, just in case.

    hey, if we start in the front, we'll get to talk to everyone. I just hope people slow down and say hi as they pass me.

    We may need to alter this ride on Monday if the fire persists. We'll have to play it by ear on Sunday.

    I'm not really sure exactly where the fire is. I heard there was a sig alert somewhere on Redwood Gulch. I have some other ideas too ... perhaps Old La Honda, and some hills near Redwood City? I'll have to check by Sunday, and modify accordingly.

    I found this article.

    http://www.nbc11.com/news/14019560/detail.html#

    There's a graphic showing where the fire is.

    Here's a map of the fire. It would appear that the closest we would come to the fire would be the stretch along Montebello Rd to the junction of Stevens Canyon & Mt Eden Rd. 'Seems like we should be OK for the ride, and I'm sure more than a few of us will be taking scouting trips out there between now and Monday to ensure that the route is a good one. Containment is expected to be by tonight, so hopefully we won't have to make any changes.

    One of the things I LOVE about riding on the Peninsula - there's always another route.
