I am putting together a ride that will venture through the real Santa Cruz Mountians, Im thinking starting with a climb up Hwy 9 and dropping down the other side through Boulder Creek and Felton and into Scotts Vally. Then climbing back up E Zayante Rd, up to Summit and back to the top of Hwy 9. Then decend Hwy 9 back into Saratoga. This is a great route. The climbs are longer then the Los Altos side, and they are higher mountians. Great for getting the climbing legs stronger. We can stop for lunch in Felton. The climb out of Scotts Valley to the top of Castle Rock is a great climb, and is all about pacing. Is there any interest in this ride? Im thinking in a couple weeks.
