    Rides From De Anza College?

    I'll have a window of opportunity to ride from De Anza college tomorrow in between Water Polo games that my kid is in.

    Any recommendations as to where I can get a quick 2 hour ride in? Would the climb up Stevens Canyon Rd be decent or is there too much traffic?

    Or should I just fuggettaboutit and go shop for Xmas gifts?

    Looking for a chateau. Twenty-one rooms but one will do. I don't want to buy it. I just want to rent it for an hour or two.

    Stevens canyon is fine on weekends. Or you could go up Montebello.

    Stevens Canyon is not too exciting until you turn left on Redwood Gulch.
    I like Montebello better.

    Montebello shouldn't take you too long, unless you climb like me! You can always go up Hwy 9, to Skyline, then come down on Page Mill.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    De Anza College, McClellan, Stevens Canyon, Redwood Gulch, Hwy 9, Skyline, Page Mill, Moody, El Monte, Foothill, McClellan, De Anza College is 35 miles. Maintain an average of 16 mph and it'll take you just about two hours.
