Course descriptions:
1. Our 100-mile route has two-and a half major climbs with 7,000 feet of vertical. "I thought it was a great mix of exhilarating scenery and lung-burning climbing." said Joe Karp, of the Century course. This route takes you up to Skyline, down to the Pacific Ocean, then south to our meet up with the 100K route.

2. The 100K ride goes through the beautiful Los Altos Hills area. It has 3,000 feet of milder climbing through some rolling hills over 60 miles.

3. Our 70K tour winds through Portola Valley and the famous "Loop" on Alpine Road. This is perfect for the intermediate rider.

4. The 30K route has rolling hills, takes you to the Pulgas Water Temple and offers breathtaking views.

5. The 30K "EZ" is flat the entire way - a pure pleasure ride that takes you along the San Francisco Bay then home to an Italian lunch!
