This route goes up Calaveras, a 3 mile climb with an overall average grade of 6%, including a few short, steeper sections. The fun, fun, fun rollers overlooking Calaveras reservoir make it all worthwhile, though. The D ride spices things up a little, with the addition of the tough 3 mile climb up Sierra Rd. After Sierra, the “parcours” rejoins the C route. Then it’s down to Pleasanton for lunch (26 miles). The good news is that the return via Calaveras is not as steep. Three options are offered on FFS rides: Slower C group (C-) with social pace and mandatory regroups; Faster C group (C+) with a bit faster pace and shorter regroups; D group with a bit longer and/or tougher route. Meet at 9:45 AM for a 10 AM start in the Target parking lot of the shopping mall located at the corner of Landess Ave and Morrill Ave in Milpitas. Let’s park on the side closest to Montague/Landess.
