Group Road Ride – Long Loop Metcalf

March 9 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

When: Saturday, March 9th, 2024.

Where: In front of Mike’s Bike in Los Gatos.

Dear Fellow Teammates,

While it is forecasted a dry weekend, roads are still not in great shape, and plan for this weekend is to head south for a fast ride toward Morgan Hill before coming back after climbing MetCalf from the steep side. The full ride is ~76 miles with ~4.6k feet of elevation, but besides MetCalf there will be plenty of opportunity to paceline and relax on the flat/rolling terrain. There will be a few water stops, but please bring lots of food and water, and do not forget to fuel yourself along the ride!

As this will be a high load training section, we will try to aim for a tempo pace for the whole ride to keep the peloton all together, but if you feel strong and motivated on the climbs or you may want to reduce the pace, we will be having multiple regrouping point and at least regroup at the top and at the bottom of each climbs. Also the ride offers plenty of opportunity to bail out in case you may be time constrained or may decide to go home, and you are very welcome to stay with us even for a few miles, and enjoy drafting behind or pulling us!

As always, it is really appreciated if you intend to ride with us, if you could RSVP on Strava so that I have a better understanding of the attendance, and I can keep everyone updated in case of any changes. Also please feel free to contact me directly in case you may want to join from a different starting point so that we can coordinate.

Important!!! Be sure to read this… RIDE PROTOCOL AND RIDE SAFETY

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.


See you on Saturday,
