The 2013 Amgen Tour of California is bringing the Individual Time Trial back to San Jose!!!
On Friday, May 17th, Stage 6 will find these professional riders racing the clock while climbing two local Billy Goats – Bailey/Buffalo Hill and Metcalf Rd!
ACTC club members are very familiar with the Bailey/Buffalo Hill goat, having climbed it over 700 times last year alone! But the big test for the pros will be the climbing finish at the top of Metcalf Rd, nearly 1,000 ft in less than 2 miles, with gradients of 15-20% throughout the climb!
Looking for a club ride to test your climbing capabilities on either of these goats? We have a couple regularly scheduled rides for each goat:
Metcalf Mauler – Kim Carr and Don Axtell have been leadng club riders at an MB pace up this intrepid climb every Thursday evening for years!
Wednesday Metcalf Mauler – Tom Green leads this 33 mile M paced ride to Metcalf Rd on the first Wednesday morning of each month.
Giro d’ Bici Ride – Now organized by Ahmed Masood, this LM-M paced “pick your own distance” ride over Bailey/Buffalo Hill to Morgan Hill and back is a monthly favorite! .
TGIF Reservoirs – Leo Hartung leads this popular M paced 48 miler over Bailey/Buffalo Hill, around Uvas Reservoir to Morgan Hill and back.
