Ride# 1 - The Prologue-Santa Ana Valley-Southside loops

This first ride (of four) is the Prologue or introductory ride (new this year) where we will do a combination of loops featuring both Santa Ana Valley and Southside Roads. This ride will also include everyone's favorite: Quien Sabe Road. We will approach the lower section and the gentler climb in the first loop, followed by the short thrilling descent to Tres Pinos.

From Tres Pinos, we will do our second loop along Southside Road heading back towards Hollister, then we will jump on Hwy 25 where a nice tail wind should carry us back to Tres Pinos. Now we tackle Quien Sabe and that thrilling descent is now a series of 4 climbs before returning to the ride start.

Don't let the terrain rating scare you either, none of the climbs are that difficult, and these are CAT 2 rides, so come enjoy.
