***Lets meet up 1 hour later that usual*** if you want to go with the group. You can also do the climb any time during the day. Let's meet at the intersection of Bonny Doon and Hwy 1. There is plenty of parking there along Hwy 1.
I a slightly different segment to use one that starts a little further down Bonny Doon and finishes just before the intersection at Empire Grade.
Note there is one point where Bonny Doon turns left, and we continue straight and UP on Pine Flat.
I'll be there by 10:45. At 11:02, we'll roll up Bonny Doon towards the start where the grade really kicks up about a mile from the Hwy 1 intersection.
I'll chalk the start and end. You can click on the strava segment map and select "street view of start" or "street view of end".
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...
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".
