Click for Route Sheet for 1-26-08 for LDTR ride. Meet at Meridian & Redmond (Almaden Coffee Roosting). Park on Oak Glen Way. All paces are welcome – ride is lead at MB pace. Shorter options or meet along the way. Friday night the ride leaders sent out this email:
Last year, we did the same ride on the same weekend and it was raining. We all meet at the coffee shop at 8A and waited until 9A to see if it would stop raining. And the rain stopped and we rolled at 9A. Those who did Croy did not get wet.
So, our plans are to have a repeat of last year. Let’s meet at the coffee shop at 08:00 and socialize if it is raining, if it is still raining after 1 hour we’ll cancel. If it looks good to ride, we’ll roll.
For the UDT ride for Saturday, September 1st, meet at the Hwy 9 Park and Ride in Los Gatos. Ride starts at 7 am. We will have three ride leaders as follows:
B-S pace Franz Kelsch 848-9535
MB pace Scott Guilladeau 307-7505
M pace Patrice Carney 996-0622,623-9593
The B-S pace group will go up Page Mill and the M and MB groups will go up Old LaHonda (a bit longer but an easier climb). Both routes are the same except for those climbs. The B-S group is planning to average over 15 mph with the climbs, little regrouping, and no sweeps. Patrice has been kind enough to develop both route sheets (together on one page).
Note that UDT are Ultra Distance Training rides. They are not generally ultra distance rides themselves, but are geared to help club members train to participate in ultra distance events. See the ACTC webpage on Ultra Distance Events for more information:
UDT’s are challenging rides in remote areas. Riders need to be fit, self-sufficient and prepared for difficult conditions.
