Is it coincidence that the route outline looks like a noose or that "calaveras" means "skulls" in Spanish? Nah.
This ride will start out with a nice stroll out of our Pleasanton shop down to Calaveras Reservoir, which provides some nice views after the gentle climb. We'll then circle back around to go back to the reservoir going up Sierra Road, a road that has probably crushed a few spirits in its history with the gradient being an average of 10% for almost 4mi. Once we finish huffing up that thing, we'll be smooth sailing all the way back to the shop. Easy!
We'll have a ride leader that will also accommodate a shorter loop, so if you or your friend aren't sure about tackling the whole thing, don't sweat it. You'll have the option to turn around before the going gets too tough.
Besides ride leaders, we'll provide ride food and hydration, and Specialized will provide SAG (ride support). Peloton Club members' friends are welcome to join.
