July 23 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Los Gatos/Capitola/Santa Cruz/Mt. Charlie Joyfest…
RIDE A: 50miles with 4,260 feet of climbing. One of the big three three difficult and demanding rides. in the Cycling4Fun inventory. Starts with some serious climbing then takes it easy on you for a while. But the last quarter of the ride has several long double digit (grade) climbs.
The reward = a wonderful lunch at Gayle’s Bakery/Deli in Capitola! Bring water and a little food for the top of the second climbs.
RIDE B: Turnback whenever, Returning from the bakery works but be aware its not shorter, just a little gentler.

The starting point can be a little tricky. These directions may help:
We will meet at Alma Bridge Road parking area (aka: Lexington Reservoir County Park Boat Launch)-
Coming from west, continue on Highway 17 past the Highway 9 exits. Take Bear Creek exit, turn left and cross over Highway 17 and then rejoin Highway 17 going East.
Take next exit (Alma Bridge Road), follow signs to Dam… Drive beyond dam to a paved parking area on the right side of Alma Bridge Road (outhouses available).
There is free off-road (dirt) parking on both sides of the road but there is a $6.00 fee to park in the paved Lexington Reservoir boat launch area parking lot.
Look for a vehicle with an orange cone on top for a meeting point
