We'll do the classic Vieja Valley Ride (this used to be the Saturday Echelon Ride): Around Hope Ranch, up La Cumbre out Foothill/Cathedral Oaks with a sprint up Glen Annie. Then out Calle Real to the beautifully resurfaced 101 to El Capitan Campground for snacks and a break. Out Calle Real then up Refugio Cyn to Circle Bar B. And back. Exit the highway at Hollister where we can continue back to Java Station for coffee or lunch. This is a great ride with good distance and not too much climbing. The parts on the newly resurfaced 101 feature wide shoulders and excellent coastal views; it is quite safe these days. If you haven't done this route I strongly encourage it!
