The South Bay Cat 2 Series is designed to gradually increase in distance and difficulty each week until you are ready for a century and more importantly the rigors and adventure of the ALC ride in June. It is designed to be the core block of training for riders who will supplement this training with other workouts.

This week's fun filled adventure will take us out of the South bay and into the East bay, well to the southern portion at least. We will ride into Palo Alto and make our way across the Dumbarton Bridge, afterward we will have a rest stop and then make our way to the quaint town of Sunol, were again we will refill our water bottles.

We will climb Mission Peak and stop for lunch before making our way back to Sunnyvale via Fremont, Milpitas and Santa Clara. This ride is very similar to an ALC day in that we will encounter much of the same type of riding we do on "the" ride.

This is a Category 2 ride (10-12 mph) and the terrain is mostly flat with a few climbs here and there. As always no one gets left behind! Come join us for the good times and fun
