Registration is closed

"Dead End Canyon Ride" will be an All Club Ride that will stage from Sports Basement in San Ramon at 8:30.  There will be multiple options for every level of rider.  The first option includes a ride out Las Trampas and back.  The second option will include the same ride out Las Trampas, but after descending Las Trampas riders will continue along San Ramon Blvd to Dublin Canyon where they will ride to the end of Cull Canyon.  The third option will be Las Trampas and Cull Canyon, but will continue down Foothill to Sunol and Kilkare Canyon.  There will be limited opportunities for fluid and fuel, so please prepare accordingly.

Here are the options and routes:

Option #1:  Las Trampas and back - 17 miles with 900' of climbing.  This route will be swept to the top of Las Trampas where there will be a regroup, but it will not be swept on the return to Sports Basement.

Option #2:  Las Trampas and Cull Canyon - 54 miles with 3,000' of climbing.  There will be regroups at:   top of Las Trampas, Heyer Tennis Complex, and Bodie's Coffee. This route will be swept.

Option #3:  Las Trampas/Cull Canyon/Kilkare - 79 miles with 4,200' of climbing.  For those of you wanting to train for or participate in a true century, this is a good ride to train on.  At any point, it has an easy bail out where you can turn around or take a shorter route (unless, of course, you've gone all the way to Kilkare).  It will have regroups at:  Top of Las Trampas, Heyer Tennis Complex, Bodie's Coffee, and Sunol Train Station.  There will also be lunch at McKay's in downtown Pleasanton afterwards....this route will be swept depending on participation.

Hope to see you out there on Saturday!

Ride Host:  Kathy Koos, 925-417-0387, 925-963-8506.
