Any good routes around 30-40mi? I hear its mostly flat, any hills?...
Lots of great rides. Either drive or ride to the intersection of Canada Road and Highway 92. To ride, take 3rd Avenue along the Bay then through San Mateo. Turn left onto Crystal Springs Road which turns into Polhemus road. Just after crossing Highway 92, there is a parking area and Bike Path to your right which takes you down to Canada Road.
From there take Canada Road south to Woodside, then up Kings Mountain or Old La Honda Road. Both are good local/benchmark climbs to Skyline Blvd. Descend Highway 84 or Highway 92 (much more traffic) back to Canada road and the reverse back to Foster City.
Foster City to Canada Road to Kings to Skyline to 92 and back should be about 35-40 miles with ~3,000ft of climbing.
Search Strava, mapmyride.com or your favorite site for more detailed routes/maps.
