My quest for the R-12 award continues its steady march forward, and a permanent owned by our dear RBA, Rob Hawks, was next on the agenda. It’s a 132-mile route with approximately 6000 ft. of climbing and takes a circuitous route from El Cerrito in the East Bay to Davis.
“Happy Trails To You” is a mostly flat, scenic route that circles the bay and includes 6 trails through the course of the ride: Stevens Creek; Bay Trail, Coyote Hills; Alameda Creek; Coyote Creek; Guadalupe River.
Want to learn more about this crazy sport? Try a populaire. It’s a great way to dip your toes into long-distance riding with its (relatively short) introductory distance of 115k (71 miles).
Team Rand-On rode SF Randonneurs’ Dart Populaire today!
Here are the stats: 19,500 ft. of climbing. 373 miles. 40 hours. And one newbie randonnerd and her bicycle.
