south bay / peninsula ride Sat 11/10?

Hi, I see there is a ride going up Mt Tam next saturday, but that is a bit far and too much of a time commitment for me. I do have a few hours free in the morning though and would like to get a nice ride in.

One of two routes comes to mind:
1. a loop N on Foothill, climb up to skyline on OLH, kings mtn, or page mill, then south on Skyline to Hwy 9, descend to redwood gulch->mt eden-> stevens canyon and back down.

- or -
2. a "deep south" excursion up Almaden -> McKean -> Calero Reservoir -> Uvas Canyon or Bailey and back.

In any case my goal is to start from Campbell/Willow Glen in the "easy" morning (8-9AM) and get home by 1-2PM. Anybody want to join me?

Not sure where you're starting from Sean, but I'm basically going to head down to Camden->Coleman->Almaden Expy and up to Mckean. Does that work for you?

I'm up for option 1 ride. I would probably just meet up at Foothill/Homestead by Chain Reaction.

I'll probably do a ride starting mid-morning, around 10 or 11 ... got some errands to do in the morning before I can have play time.

I'm going to head as far as Kings Mountain to get in a few more miles.
