Meet Howard Shafer (408 247-9980 or email@example.com) at the dirt parking lot 100 yards before the first (when coming from Saratoga) intersection of Highway 9 with Highway 236 at 10:30 am for this shady ride. Highway 236 is the road through Big Basin State Park. We’ll ride through beautiful redwood groves to Boulder Creek. After lunch there (bring or buy), we’ll return through Big Basin. We will NOT ride on Highway 9. There is one famously steep hill on this ride, China Grade, but we’ll ride it downhill, and we’ll go slow. We’ll be able to say we’ve done China Grade! We won’t have to say which direction! We’ll ride at a social B pace. Rain cancels.
