Knee replacement training Oct 4 or 5

Here is a ride I came up with as a precursor to the Santa Cruz Mountains Knee Replacement. It's 86 miles and 10,400' climbing. Includes Montebello, Redwood Gulch, BOB to the top, Moody, Golden Oak, Tres Hombres of pain, OLH. An option could also include heading down 84 to Tripp for one last 20% hurt fest up Summit Springs. This one is not too far off the beaten path so refueling stops can be had.

I was thinking of doing the Diablo Challenge, but why spend $60 when I can do this madness for free!

Low Key Hill Climb site is down for some reason. Wasn't Quimby on the 4th though??

Ramon...

Looks like Low Key is doing Montebello on the 4th. So we should try to avoid that climb around 10-11 am on the 4th, so we don't run into the race.

We can either do it Sunday instead or depending on the start hit it up after Bohlman on the way back. Pete, are you in for this?

It might rain Saturday so maybe Sunday would be better.

Better not. I'm rolling a d20 the night before to decide which bike to ride.

Sunday is also the day of the Mt. Diablo race. 4k vs 11k, pick your suffering.

The devil would like to know...

Yikes, I'd better get Diablo out of the way on Saturday, then. No way I could participate in anything referred to as a "race". Heh.

What time can you guys get down here? The route is pretty long so an earlier start would be better. This route is full of surprises.

What time do you think you'll hit OLH? The rest of us could feel fast for once.

Hmmm... I mean I can take the car down. Pete can you get to my place somehow?

Earliest Caltrain doesn't roll into Mtn View until 9:14 AM.

9:30 start would mean it getting dark/late by finish.

We have to start at like 7:30 ish I think (8 at the latest).

I actually saw them huffing and puffing getting to the top of OLH a couple of weeks ago. I should have had my camera on video ... that was a once in a lifetime viewing.

The logistics of this almost work for me. I need to teach in Palo Alto at 3:00.

If there are any of you that might be thinking of dropping out early whose shower I could bum and live nearby I'd be into it. I could give Pete a ride down in the morning.
