We are looking to kick off the new year with a San Benito ride on Saturday, January 5th. This is truly a unique boogie that traverses the Gabilan Range twice. We are going to run it as a loop this year beginning and ending in San Juan Bautista via Old Stage Rd, the Airline Highway, La Gloria Grade & Cienega Rd. It is a touch under 90 miles with only 4000’ of climbing. Bring plenty of extra calories on this remote boogie for the WÜleursagwagen. We will do our usual lunch stop at Cal Fire Bear Valley Helitack Station (no joy-rides this year on Copter 406). As you can see from the ride profile, this is a relatively flat ride- we will keep the group together in the flats and regroup at the summit of La Gloria. Please feel free to pass this along to other folks who might enjoy a silky winter boogie with friends.
When: Saturday, January 5th
Time: 8:00 am (roll out at 8:30)
Location: meet at the Windmill Market parking lot in San Juan Bautista (45 min drive from SC)
Dinner: lots of choices for those who want to stay and eat in SJB or Palapas?
RSVP: for ride & dinner reservation headcount
Cost: 2 bucks a head for the WÜleruwagen gas fund
Rain: Medium to heavy rain will cancel, look for a confirmation email morning of the 5th
