Sorry, folks! Our insurance requires all riders wear helmets during the climb, and we follow the USA Cycling rule against ear buds or other head phones. Rock to tunes before the climb, perhaps, but we need riders to pay attention to what's happening during the climb...
New!!! We meet at the Montebello MB4 permit-only parking area (click for Google street view). Riders aren't allowed to park here, volunteers only, so all riders who wish to drive should take advantage of ample parking available elsewhere. The best option is probably to climb Page Mill to the start: it will provide a solid warm-up which will leave your legs ready to do their best work.
From Montebello, we'll send off small groups to ride the rest of the way to Skyline, then down Alpine to the park border. We'll regroup there where the stopwatches will be started.
Here's an overview map of key locations.
Volunteers make Low-Key tick! Without them, we no longer function. Please sign up for any week in the series using our new volunteer form! Thanks!!!
