Saturday Big-Basin HWY 9 ride

Departing tomorrow from Holmstead/Foothill Peet's Coffee and 9AM.

Route is: https://ridewithgps.com/trips/8100

80m/8k climbing. Option to throw in Montebello at the end to make it "epic" or 10k climbing.

Moderate pace with frequent regroups; i.e. we climb at different speeds, but generally will wait at the top.

No christmas tree traffic, nice back roads, good weather, nice climbs... what's not to love?

Dunno. I hope to be home by 5pm, and I'm a 20min ride to start. You're welcome to like, ride up 9 with us and they turn back a certain time, or head off the front if the group is too slow.

Ride time for me, for this route, would be like 5:30, but that's without the regrouping.

you need to subtract the ~10 miles from the route since the ride starts at Foothill and not Lawrence. Anyway, I was hoping to finish more like 3-4pm plus whatever it takes to ride home.

The 80 miles is from my house. It will be a little nicer this time, as we won't have to be battling the christmas tree farm traffic.

The route from Ron's place is the same distance as from my place. I fully intend to add Montebello at the end for the 3rd 10k climbing weekend in a row.
