Feel free to do the climbs any time Saturday in either order. I'm planning to chalk the start and end of both!

For some companionship, meet up in the church parking lot on Oak St in Saratoga, just below Bohlman from 9:45 until 10:05. (It'll be sunnier there than at the cemetery where Bohlman starts.) We'll bike up the street to Bohlman and circle the wagons for a minute or two before going up at 10:10. Regroup at the tippy top, I'll head over the dirt down to Montevina, head to the bottom and head up Montevina. Combine time on both to get your time for Saturday.

We'll do Bohlman the whole way up:

Then Montevina, the same we did last year:

Cover your head, not your ears...

Sorry, folks! We require 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...

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".

"Get your ass up that hill!" -- Kevin Winterfield, Fovnder
