Come and celebrate the end of Fall Hills series.  This week will be the hardest of all. We'll go up on PageMill with a 3 steps tough climb to the top. Then drop down W. Alpine on the other side, half way down to the overlook. (Option to go further down for those pain seekers). Then we'll climb back up the steep hill to the top.   We'll turn left North-bound on Skyline rolling hills to Alice crossing at 84, and a thrill ride down 84 to Woodside and make our way back to Lucky's.  Its going to be 50 miles and 4800ft. This final ride is going to be the most elevation of all the other rides.  

For the winter season, we'll continue to meet up at Lucky's on Saturdays at 9AM and keep those legs in shape.  In the Springs, we'll do a "Springs Mountain Series" where we'll climb the big 4 mountains around the bay. Mt. Ham, Mt Diablo, Mt. Tam, and the worst of them all - Mt. Umm.   So, no slacking for all of you.
