Paceline Road Ride – Eastside Roll
Route: Eastside Roll (~24 miles)
Meet at the corner of Alum Rock Ave and Mt Hamilton Rd at 7:30am. All parking is on street (see route map link). Expect to be on the bike leaving by 8am.
We will begin at the corner of Alum Rock Ave and Mt Hamilton Road and then descent down to McKee Rd (right). From McKee Rd, we turn right on Toyon and then left on Penitencia Creek Rd. Then make right on White Rd ( which will turn into Piedmont) for about 6 miles. Then continue on Evans Rd eventually with a right on N. Park Victoria. Continue on N. Park Victoria until we reach Scott Rd which will be the turn around point (1st regroup point). We will follow back N. Park Victoria back which will turn into Morrill Ave. About mile 14.3, we will make left on Berryessa Rd with a right on Piedmont and then a left on Penitencia Creek Rd. About a 0.25 miles up the road, we will enter Alum Rock Park (2nd Regroup point) and follow road in park to a service road where we will climb back out of the park. Once outside of the Alum Rock Park, we will make a left on Crothers Rd and continue the climb (3rd Regroup). We will follow Crothers Rd all the way to Mt Hamilton Rd in which we will make a right down the descent until Alum Rock Ave which will be where our cars are located.
The route link above allows you to preview the route to judge the level of the ride. We look at this route as a 90% very flat route where the last 10% is climbing and descending. All the climbs are gradual but has some sections that pitch up to 7-8%. Paceline rides “leaves no one behind.” Everyone will be patient and encouraging to make sure that we all finish this route.
WHAT TO BRING: The typical bike, helmet, snacks & water. Even though summer is ending, that doesn’t mean that the heat is gone. So please bring plenty of water and and snacks as you feel is necessary.
