Welcome to another Ultra Low-Key Hillclimb kick-off at Montebello! For anyone who has done our series before, there will be nothing new here as we always start here. For those joining in person, we meet at the Steven's Creek Reservoir Saturday 10/1 at 10:00 and ride at 10:10.
As a reminder, this is not an organized event, so please don't expect any fanfare if you join in person. There are no numbers, no timers, and no traffic control. At 10:10 some people will choose to start, and if you are there you can choose to follow - this is "Ultra" Low Key. You can also choose to ride on your own, anytime over the weekend and if you are a member of our strava club we will capture your time there - no problem!
Rule 1 is be safe and stay healthy!
Join the Strava Low-Key Hillclimbers Club to get your time recorded "automatically". Or message/email your time to Brandon, or post it on Facebook LKHC group.The Facebook LKHC group is also a good place to get the latest announcements and discussions.
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".
