We start at Dr. Wong's office on Woodside Road in Redwood City. We go up Woodside Road, through Woodside, and turn right on King's Mountain Road. We go up King's Mountain Road to Skyline and stop there for a short break. This is the first opportunity for our volunteer leaders to give any tips to the riders they've observed.
From there, we head down Tunitas Creek Road (described by my late friend Brett as "a goddamned GOAT TRAIL!") ;-). We follow Tunitas Creek Road all the way down to Highway 1, where we take a short jaunt down 1 to Stage Road. Left on Stage road to San Gregorio's little General Store, where we take another short break.
From San Gregorio, we go south on Stage Road to the little town of Pescadero (which is a veritable METROPOLIS compared to San Gregorio). Pescadero is the first opportunity to gas up, so you need to make sure you have at least enough gas to make it there. (NOTE: As of 8/1/99, the gas station in Pescadero is closed, apparently to have the tanks replaced. First available gas on route is Boulder Creek) Another short break at Pescadero, and then we head east on Pescadero Road a short ways to Cloverdale Road, where we turn south (right) again. We follow Cloverdale road down to Gazos Creek Road, where we turn west (right).
We follow Gazos Creek Road to Highway 1, and then take a trip down 1 to Davenport, where we stop for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 again to Bonny Doone Road, where we turn east (left). Don't turn right there, or you'll be surprised at the lack of floatation a set of leathers provides. ;-)
Up Bonny Doon Road to Smith Grade, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade. North (left) on Empire Grade to Jamison Creek Road, down Jamison Creek Road to Highway 236. Right on Highway 236 to Highway 9 in Boulder Creek. Another short break in Boulder Creek (gas, if needed), then up Highway 9 (east) to Skyline, where we assemble at the little rest area there for a final meeting. After our meeting and bull session, the group breaks up and everyone is on their own. Hope you can find your way home from there!
