as I’m always eager to check out a new route, I scanned the Grizzly Peak Cyclists’ extensive archive of cue sheets and picked out a themed ride (I’m a sucked for these): the Tour of Five Canyons.
Our fearless ride leader for today, May Woo, led 13 folks of the Ride-On crew from San Francisco to Tunitas Creek and back to the city today for a total of 90 miles and 7,000ft. of climbing!
Our plan for today was to ride from SF-Pescadero-SF — led by our intrepid friend May Woo — but alas, the rainy weather put a kibosh on our 90-mile journey.
With the Russian River 300k rapidly approaching in early March, last weekend would be one of the few opportunities left to put in some hard miles. I scanned a map of the Bay Area to see where I hadn’t ridden before — I get bored with pedaling the same routes over and over again pretty quickly — and spotted Mt. Umunhum in the South Bay.
