Foothill - Portola Valley - Cañada road ride (50 miles)

Contact:

Roll-out time is 9:00 AM. Meet around 8:15 AM if interested in a pre-ride coffee and/or bagel at the House of Bagels.

This is a fun ride we haven't done in a while. We'll ride Foothill Expwy to Page Mill Rd, take the scenic Old Page Mill Rd to Arastradero Rd and ride through Portola Valley and Woodside on our way to Cañada Road. The northern portion of Cañada Rd is closed to autos during Bicycle Sundays (https://parks.smcgov.org/bicycle-sunday) and is popular with cyclists. On the way back we'll stop at Robert's Market in Woodside (around mile 33.5) for lunch before heading back toward Foothill via Whiskey Hill > Sand Hill > Junipero Serra. Among other stops for regroups/restrooms we'll also stop at the Pulgas Water Temple for a break and group photo.

Distance: ~50 miles

Pace: ~14-17 mph average when rolling on flat pavement, faster/slower when going downhill/uphill

Route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/11074570

NOTES:

1.) The northernmost 3.8 miles of Cañada Road will be closed to autos and is popular with cyclists so we'll have plenty of company on that part of the ride. Note though that most of the route is on roads shared with vehicular traffic.
