Calaveras Road Speed Ride

Contact:

I suppose this ride is a bit of an experiment on a whim (i.e. short notice). Usually when I host a ride socializing is as much on the agenda as the route itself. This ride is going to be a "GIT 'R' DONE" ride--no lunch along the route, faster-paced, and no stops along the way except for the turn-around point. The plan is to start at the parking lot at Sunol Glen Elementary School in Sunol, CA. We'll ride the always-popular Calaveras Road up to "the wall" before turning around and heading back. This 30-mile ride should be completed in about 2 hours.

Distance: 30 miles

Pace: 17-21 mph avg. on flat ground, faster/slower when uphill/downhill

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30510519 Note that the elevation gain data is inaccurate, actual is less

FWIW, I'll be riding my high racer instead of my usual go-to P-38 bike
