NEW DATE TRYING FOR SAT NOV 22nd, 8:30AM....
So the polls have closed, here’s the route
Let’s start at Orinda BART this time @ 8:30am.
The default “Skyline Open” route is:
Orinda BART - Moraga Way to Glorietta.
Left on Glorietta, Right on Rheem and for the first climb of the day – go “wheeeee” on the nice straight descent.
Right on Moraga Rd and head towards Canyon. First regroup point at junction w/Pinehurst.
This time, turn LEFT on Pinehurst and follow the road through to Redwood, climb to junction w/ Skyline – second regroup here.
Follow Skyline to Grizzly peak, as per the first ride, to the junction of Lomas Cantadas/Grizzly Peak (“the little trains”) – Water and restrooms available here, last restroom is at Inspiration Point.
Follow Grizzly Peak to Shasta, then Wildcat, proceed cautiously down Wildcat (!) then do the 3 bears loop from SPDR, Castro Ranch, Alhambra, Bear Creek back to SPDR.
Return south to Orinda BART
For those who clicked on the “Berkeley Hills Death Ride climbs” option, we could quite easily throw in one or two extra climbs if the group splits into "two" again or everyone's good with it - let’s work that out on the day.
Who’s in so far:
DG Going Uphill (maybe)
RoboCheme (to SPDR)
ROJA (if in town)
