I need to log some mileage and climbing in preparation for the Levi Gran Fondo next month. Roll from Page Mill park n ride parking lot at 8:30.

Route is up and over OLH to Hwy 84. Left on Pescadero and continue west. North on Stage until it spits you out on Hwy 1. Continue north a short ways and then head inland using Tunitas. Cross Skyline Blvd and descend Kings Mountain Road. Roll back to starting point on Portola Valley Road. Or you can take Whiskey Hill to Sand Hill Road for an easy way back to the starting point.

Post up if you are interested in joining me.

check my post labeled 9/04 and 9/05 I dont mind starting later and heck we can throw in a lobitas creek too if you want.
I should have read your post before replying. Ignore my response below.
Unfortunately, a later start won't work out since a couple other riders are involved.

Strongly considering including Lobitas Creek loop if legs are feeling good and I don't have to keep up a race pace before getting to Tunitas.

Meet us at the Page Mill park n ride, 8:30am if you don't mind starting your ride farther south. Or you can re-adjust your route a little and do your original plan in reverse.

I'll be wearing a RBR kit Saturday morning.

maybe we will run into each other. will be on OLH around 8 to 8:30 would be nice to have some peeps taking some pulls on pescadero and stage for once.
That is a possibility. I'll watch for you somewhere along the route. Call out if we pass you.

You were probably a half hour ahead of us. Bill and I didn't reach the base of OLH until 9am.

The weather was on the chilly side at the coast, but everywhere else was perfect riding weather. Fortunately, I wore enough layers and was comfortable all day long.

I also hated the 2nd half of Stage Road with all the loose gravel. Descending was a little sketchy and had to be ultra-alert all the way to Hwy 84. But Tunitas, Lobitos and Kings Mountain descent more than made up for the crappy road conditions on Stage.

See ya next week for the RBR Sierra-Caleveras ride.
