3/28/15 - 9:00 am: HOLLY HILL REVISITED (42.2 miles 1,915 feet of climbing):
This weeks route is largely flat with two climbs - Holly Hill and Clark Hill. It can be shortened and neutered by simply deleting Holly Hill at the Laurel Store. Review the route - it's a bit complicated. We head south from the start down 229th-231st to Baseline. Then we head out Minter Bridge to Burkhalter. Next it's to the Laurel Store via Farmington (cross 219) - Bald Peak - Campbell. We climb Holly Hill and then back to the store. Don't forget to look for the Boeing 727 “house” - about mile 15.5 as you loop right. From there we take a nice loop through Scholls via Laurel - McCormick Hill - Vanderschuere to OR 219 and OR 210. Next we climb Clark Hill - pace yourself, it's steep (2 miles) - followed by a great descent to Tile Flat. Then it's heading home via Farmington and Rood Bridge to River Rd. We pass Century High and head back in with a repeat of 231st - 229th to LaCie. Again, those wanting less distance and/or climbing can simply drop off the Holly Hill loop at the store. The weather forecast is still variable - it's calling for partly cloudy skies and ride temperatures in the high-40's's to high-50's.Ride Map* | CTX File* | Ride Preview | Weather
