Santa Cruz Road Ride
Santa Cruz, CA / April 13, 2013 10AM / FREE!
The Meet Your Maker Tour 2013 is kicking off with a road ride in Santa Cruz on Saturday April 13. This is a no-cost event with no rider limit so there's no need to RSVP. Just show up!
Route: 51 miles, 3800' climbing. Roll out through the woods of Aptos and past farms in Coralitos to the beautiful climb up Eureka Canyon Rd. The climb takes you up through the cool shade of the Redwoods into a steeper finish in the sun before heading back into the trees for rollers across the summit. Climbing again up Loma Prieta Ave and onto a brief dirt section to gain a sunny vista of the Monterey Bay. Now at the high point of the ride, enjoy a fast descent down Loma Prieta as you get back on the pavement. At Summit Rd, make a left and you'll soon see the Summit store (cold drinks, snacks). A little further make a right onto Soquel-San Jose Rd for a long flowing descent towards the coast. At Laurel Glen (small store) make a right and a short climb up Laurel Glen with a left at the top to climb a little further on Rodeo Gulch, then enjoy the twisty descent down towards the coast. Continue to the beach at Capitola and a few more miles South back to the start.
Ride will start/end at the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival
