THU JUN 3 - WED JUN 30 Varies * June GPC Challenge Rides - Epic Climb Series
Leader: Thomas Fraser     (954) 290-3903
Leader: Thomas Dunscombe     (510) 385-5859
Meet at 8:00 am
Mandatory pre-registration

Two rides with 4 Epic Climbs; Complete 3 of the 4 climbs to qualify for the monthly raffle (see details).

Please note these are self-directed rides you can ride alone or with your friends. These are not group rides with a leader, although during the month some GPC members may offer them under a separate listing as a group ride.

Sierra Road & Welsh Creek

While a reasonably modest distance of about 48 miles this suggested route includes two epic climbs and 5.8k of climbing including Sierra Road and Welsh Creek. Berryessa BART is the starting point and finishes at Pleasanton BART. For those that drive to the start be aware parking is not free on weekends in this Valley Transit Parking lot. Unfortunately there isn’t a place to get water after starting up Sierra Road all the way to Sunol (about 30 miles) so bring extra. There are two gas stations at the foot of the Sierra Road climb for those that need to top off. Sierra Road is a 3.5 mile 1800 foot climb with a great view of the South Bay. After reaching the summit, Sierra Road will merge into Felter Road and intersect with Calaveras at mile 13. For those low on water turn left on Calaveras and ride less that a mile down to Ed Levin Park for water and bathrooms before heading back up Calaveras Road to the Reservoir. Enjoy the winding road along Calaveras and the nice down hill stretch because awaiting your arrival at mile 25 is a very steep 3.7 mile 1850 foot climb of Welsh Creek. Its fairly flat to Sunol where convenience stores and porta potties are available for those in need. Be careful riding Niles Canyon, traffic moves fast with a narrow bridge section with no shoulders and dangerous rumble strips dividing the shoulder from the lane on several stretches.

King Ridge & Fort Ross

This 69 mile ride with 7.1K of climbing starts in Duncan Mills (good coffee shop) but a start in Cazadero will trim off 15 miles. King Ridge winds 26 miles though spectacular vistas of the Sonoma Hills before emerging at Stewarts Point. It is very remote so bring lots of water and be sure your bike is in good repair. The climbing starts at Cazadero and continues for 11 miles and 2300 feet until reaching the summit. Keep an eye peeled for the occasional pickup truck as well as cattle wandering on or near the road. Good food and bathrooms are available at the Stewarts Point store and be sure to top off water. Very often the wind blows southbound, if so, relax and enjoy the view as you ride the 15 miles to Fort Ross. There is a Fort Ross Store at mile 47 for those that need to top off before the turn and the 2.5 mile , 1300 foot climb up Fort Ross Road at mile 49. From the summit of Fort Ross, there’s still a few hilly miles to go but then a long fast descent back to Cazadero and a flat ride back to Duncan Mills.
