    3/15 Santa Cruz Mountains - LONG (UPDATE: April 4th! See post #38)

    OK... now with DST, no rain and DMD only like 6 weeks away, it's time we do the shake down ride.

    http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...y-Training-SMC

    I know there won't be many that want to join in, but a few to keep us company would be nice

    Let me know if you're in, and where you'd like to meet up along the ride.

    EDIT: Rescheduled for Saturday 4/4/09!! See post #38 (page 2) for update.

    A nice long ride would be nice but staying out that long makes wifey sad.

    San Mateo. Start/end.

    Woodside is a good start/end point for South Bay people and still get most of the important parts of the ride in.

    FYI: doing half this ride and doing the whole ride may lead to differences in pace

    Wow... No one else?!

    Heh, for those who can't see Bikely it's around 158 miles with over 14,000 ft of climbing. If you start from Woodside, it's more like 130 with around 12000. I think..

    Still sorting out my weekend plans and whether I'll be riding at all let alone which day. I'll know more in a day or two. If I went I'd join you in Woodside.

    What time are we starting this little shindig? I'll have to wake up fairly early to drive up from Sunnyvale.

    Maybe 6:30? what do you all think?

    I'm thinking about this but going to have to see how to make the loop shorter. My limit is around 100.

    Starting in either Woodside or somewhere along Skyline after OLH would trim off a fair amount of miles. Or begin from the park & ride at the base of Page Mill and Arastradero and ride up to meet at Skyline and the Alpine descent. You don't want to miss out on all the hills that occur after HW1 south.

    I had thee same suggestion.

    Park & Ride at the base of Page Mill and Arastradero would probably shave off the most miles while not cutting out much climbing at all.

    Haha.. I almost want to do Page Mill since I am dreading the uphill trending roller part of Skyline between OLH and Alpine, but I need that training for DMD.

    I had some knee pain on my commute today, most likely patellofemoral syndrome, I'm now in the process of scheduling a bike fit and maybe seeing a physical therapist to nip this in the bud. Anyway i'll be taking it sorta easy for a while so needless to say that disqualifies me from this ride!

    Sorry to hear about your knee, Ben, there seems to be a lot of that going-on these days.

    Free plug for Lorri Lee Lown (velogirl) here. I did a bike fit with her, a couple of weeks back, and it was a positive experience: she tweaked a few things on the bike and gave me a few things to think about, technique-wise, which helped smooth-out my pedal stroke.

    I'm considering joining from Davenport to the top of Alba.

    That would be about 70 miles in plus a stop at Pescadero, so you'd hit Davenport sometime between noon and 1pm?

    Marco:

    I could possibly join up with you at Pescadero. I would go down the coast and climb up Bonny Doon with you, but take a shorter path to Hwy9 and Skyline. I want to keep my ride to 100 miles. That's enough punishment for one day for this wimp .

    Can you call me when you start the OLH climb? I could leave my house at that point. I think that would get us to Pescadero at about the same time. I takes me about 1 hour to get to Pescadero.

    Cool!

    Sound's good. We will probably be there (base of OLH) at around 7:30-8:00 am.
