Saturday, November 17, 2018

5!/M/67 Billy Goat Leader: Thomas Dunscombe  tdunscom@ix.netcom.com   (510) 385-5859 Meet at 9:04 am Start Location: Warm Springs BART UPDATE: Once agian SFPUC has decided to extend the Calaveras Road closure thru the end of 2018 so a new route will be coming soon.   Billy Goats are the challenging hill climbs of SF Bay Area.   A  comprensive listing of Billy Goats is on the Almaden Cycling Touring Club (ACTC) website at  https://actc.org/routes/bg/index.php#local?region=all. A GPC Billy Goat Ride will be a friendly yet challenging and scenic ride with approximately 1K of climbing per 10 miles (more or less).  Ride length will be 60 to 80 miles so we can get going and get back in a reasonable amount of time with 1 or 2 efficient stop times to rest and refuel.  There will be regroups along the way to keep us  togeather.  This month we'll start from the Warm Springs BART near the station entrance.  I'll arrive on the 9:04 Train and be ready to roll by 9:15am.   The ride is 67 miles with 6300ft of billy goats including Calavares, Palomares, Redwood and Pinehurst ending at the corner of Spruce and Grizzly Peak.   There's a bail out at mile 40 at the Castro Valley BART Station.   The 1st stop will be in Sunol and a second in Castro Valley.    Feel free to email me at tdunscom@ix.netcom.com  to let me know you're coming or have any questions.  Here is the link to the route https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28620136.
