10-27 - 7:00 a.m. Shannon Park in Dublin - 6th Annual Santa Cruz Century

We'll start at the Shannon Park Center at Shannon and San Ramon Rd. in Dublin and ride out Foothill to the Sunol Train Station for a quick stop where we will regroup together to ride Nile’s Canyon. This is also a good starting point for those not able to make the Dublin start. We'll then head down Niles Canyon to the Alameda Creek Trail as a group.  Then we will ride to and across the Dumbarton Bridge and into Palo Alto for a break at Starbucks.  We'll continue up towards Stanford then cut over to Sand Hill Rd. and up Old La Honda Rd. to Skyline for a regroup at the summit before going Old La Honda & Hwy 84 to our lunch stop at the La Honda Market parking lot. Then it's on to Pescadero and Gazos Creek roads to Hwy 1 and on to the Davenport Bakery for our last break before heading into Santa Cruz. The payoff is the spectacular ride along West Cliff Drive to the Santa Cruz Wharf before heading downtown for food and beverages. We currently have one sag vehicle lined up for support but be sure to bring money for coffee, snacks, and lunch.

This ride will require car pooling and dropping off of some vehicles in Santa Cruz on Friday 10/26/18. If you have room in your vehicle and can bring riders back to Dublin or need to drop vehicles off in Santa Cruz please send an email to the VS list and to me so we can coordinate the return transportation.
