El Sereno - September 8, 2009

Distance: 12.64 miles Ascent: 2407 feet Moving time: 1:37 hours

Went on a nice ride with my Tuesday evening group. From downtown Los Gatos, we rode the length of the Jones Trail in St. Josephs and across Lexington Dam as the warm-up. Being properly prepared, we ascended Montevina Road. This road climbs about 1850 feet in 3.8 miles. To make things worse, the steepest part is at the end of the climb. I held a pretty good pace all the way up and felt better than my previous climbs up this road.

Once past the gate at the end of the road, a little more climbing on the dirt took us to the Aquinas Trail in El Sereno. We didn't waste too much time on the trail as we were hurrying to get down before sunset. Fortunately, we made it with a few minutes to spare.
