Los Gatos Bicycle Racing Club / Group Event


 RIDEWITHGPS    Strava          Route Peet’s Start to Mountain WInery


This is a great route that’s the clockwise variation of a common route. This features the exhilarating rollicking, rolling descent from Castle Rock to Bear Creek. Just remember to stay well to the right on the blind single-lane corners. If a car comes around here and you’re in the middle of the road, that’d be bad.



We tried doing this last month, but we couldn’t complete the route due to road closure. Let’s try again!


 As Bear Creek makes a T on Highway 9, take a left into town to Boulder Creek American Gas. Returning on Highway 9 at Skyline, there ought to be slower and faster element regroups.


Big climbs spell separation.  The main group should wait a decent interval at Hwy 9/Skyline and subsequent stops.  Riders finding the main group’s moved on should form an element and press on.  Maybe to catch up at Boulder Creek.
