Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club / Group Event

Strava Route  RideWithGPS

The storied default LGBRC Saturday Ride, inherited from way back.  Has everything you need, with great efficiency.

Regroups.  Since this route is well known, there’s no getting lost, and less need for regroups.  Don’t multiply regroups beyond these.  There’s one BR/water break, at Calero Park, plan accordingly.  If you find yourself behind the group in front (this happens on the Uvas/McKean return) look behind you to form a rear element with other riders and work together. What this ride is about is working together, riding fast, brisk, efficient, high average speed, and getting back home surprisingly fast.            

  •  16.7 miles    Bernal at Golf Course Lane (through the residential maze by the golf course to avoid the flats on that rough section of Santa Teresa).

Calero Park is key, because it has BR and water.   Calero Park’s easy to miss, so remember:  There’s reprieve at mile 45.

When: 8:30 AM

Meet-up: 101 West Main, Los Gatos
