Cover your head, not your ears...

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...


We'll meet at the park & ride not far from the bottom of Mill Creek Road ( StreetView ). Note BART to Fremont is an excellent option this week.

For the suffer junkies out there, if you want some post-Low-Key fun, here's a route for a post-ride with Calaveras Road and a bonus out-and-back on Welch Creek: Strava Route.

For directions to the Park & Ride, use 701 Mission Road, Fremont, California.

Public Transit

This is a rare public-transit-friendly week for Low-Key Hillclimbs! BART to Fremont isn't far from the start. The BART schedule is here.


Volunteers make Low-Key tick! Without them, we no longer function. Please sign up for any week in the series using our volunteer form! Thanks!!!

The Low-Key Way

Low-Key is all about a group of friends riding up a hill together. It's like any other informal group ride, except we time you to the top and report the results on our web site. But we have no road closures, no lead vehicle, no follow vehicle. We are traffic, sharing the roads with other traffic, following the laws and courtesy which applies to traffic. This includes riding to the right of the road when practicable, and not crossing double yellows to pass riders or to get through corners faster. We're each responsible for our own actions out there, on and off the bike, both as users of the road as as courteous visitors to the neighborhoods we pass through. "Ceci n'est pas un race".
