Saturday Ride-Big Basin to Boulder Creek!

November 19 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

Dear team,
Here comes another fun Saturday ride. This one has lots of climbing in the SC mountains! (Thanks for the inspiration, Salvatore!)
The route heads over to Saratoga, up highway 9, down through Big Basin, then back up Boulder Creek. Save some gas on HWY 9, because Boulder Creek is steep!

RIDE PROTOCOL

• Introduce yourself to new riders. If you’re a new rider, introduce yourself at the start of the ride.

• Roll out from the start/regroups gently so everyone has a chance to warm up and get going.

• Use hand signals and call out turns, stops and road obstructions. Repeat the message through the group.

• Mechanicals: relay the message to the front. Help out the victim. Wait for the victim at the next regroup.

• Ride paceline / 2×2 on the flats. Ride leader will initiate rotating paceline when the group desires.

• Follow behind the wheel in front to avoid the bunch spilling over the road.

• Don’t ride on the sidewalk at Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company

• If you leave a ride early, notify someone so the group doesn’t think they lost you

RIDE SAFETY:

• Please carry ID just in case.

• Riders must wear a helmet. Riders are encouraged to wear a helmet on LGBRC rides and riders are discouraged from riding with LGBRC groups if they don’t wear a helmet.

• Riders are always responsible for their own safety. If you feel uncomfortable riding with the group, gently move to the rear of the group.

• Look for yourself for cars and other road users, and OBEY TRAFFIC rules – you are responsible.

• Do NOT cross the centerline. You will be asked to leave the ride if you do so.

• If you’re new to group riding, make this known to the ride leader and ask for help.

• Protect your front wheel, do not overlap wheels.

• Do not make sudden lateral movements at any time.

• Be gentle on brakes so as not to suddenly stop in front of someone.

• No Aero Bar use.
