The climb up hicks starts at a little bridge. If you want to ride with the group, meet on Hicks Rd near the dam, 1.2 miles North of the bridge. We get a nice decent from the dam to the start. Saturday morning, I'll be there from 9:45, and at about 10:08, we'll descend to the start of the climb to hit it at 10:10am. Bring your climbing legs and it will be epic.
This segment: https://www.strava.com/segments/16100157 Start just past the bridge, and finish at the circle at the tippy top.

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".
