LGBRC Saturday Ride 6/4: Uvas Reservoir Route
June 4 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm
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.
- 5.1 miles Shannon Rd and Hicks
- 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).
- 26.4 miles Willow Springs and Oak Glen
- 45 miles Calero Park on McKean
- 49.7 miles McKean and Harry
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
