Legion of Honor Route

Posted on April 21st, 2011 in Routes by lane2train

My good friend Brian Chun introd20130825_115239uced this route to me a few years ago.  His version is much more difficult than mine since his goes up a few extra steep climbs than this one.  I’m leading this ride Saturday, May 16, 2015 rolling at 8:30AM.

Photos from the last few times I led this ride are here, here, here, herehere, and here.

This is a link to the RideWithGPS route (you can download your GPX or TCX file from this link). The latest change is to skip the Highway 1/Skyline interchange by taking Gateway and Hickey to get back up to Skyline.

This is a great ride with a long stretch on the Sawyer Camp Recreation Trail and great views from the California Legion of Honor including the Golden Gate Bridge.

Santa Cruz to Monterey Route

Posted on April 21st, 2011 in Routes by lane2train

This is my favorite century route but it is a bit windy on the way home.  From 1973 to 1975 I was in language school in Monterey which is why I like to visit from time to time.

I’ve biked to Monterey from Santa Cruz with friends over the years and I’ve led a ride down there several times for the ACTC bike club.   The ride is primarily an out-and-back so it’s easy to cut the ride short at various points and head back to Santa Cruz but my main objective is to see Monterey again and enjoy some clam chowder on the wharf.  The next ACTC ride that’s heading down there is being led by Jon Kaplan on Monday, January 2, 2017.  The crew rolls at 8:00AM from Natural Bridges State Park at the intersection of Natural Bridges Dr and Delaware Ave in Santa Cruz.

The map below is of the complicated section near the end of the ride.  The goal is to get over to the Santa Cruz Wharf or The Dream Inn then head back up to Natural Bridges.

ACTC Poppy Carmel Century Route

Posted on April 15th, 2011 in Routes by lane2train

This is an age-old route for the ACTC club.   Back in the day there was a ride called the Poppy Century that’s no longer held but we re-enact the ride two or three times a year.  Beautiful back country in Carmel Valley.  My buddy Jon Kaplan loves to lead this ride so he’s leading it again, April 23, 2011.

Photos from the last time I rode this with the club are here.
