So on Saturday morning 2/23/2012 my friend Gino and I embarked on a 100 mile ride though the South Bay.
Our route started with a warm-up to Milpitas and then on to a 1000ft climb up Calaveras Blvd. We then went around Calaveras Reservoir into the City of Fremont via Niles Canyon. Both Calaveras Reservoir and Niles Canyon were gorgeous routes.
From Fremont we rode across the Dumbarton Bridge to East Palo Alto and took the Bayshore trail to the Stevens Creek trail to end up on Foothill Blvd where we stopped for a well deserved lunch of sandwiches and chocolate croissants at the Los Altos Bakery & Cafe
After lunch we continued on to Palo Alto-->Atherton-->Woodside and then looped back to ride back to Santa Clara.
Elapsed time: 9:05 hrs
Total riding time: 7:00 hrs
Avg Speed: 14.4 mph
