Riding with Team Velo Girls: Hill Climb Series

As we wrap up our 10-week Cinderella Progressive Training Ride Series, we're excited to announce our next endurance training series for 2013.  Led by our billy goats, Lyn and Diane, this five-ride co-ed series will include the most popular climbs in the bay area.  Whether you're training for a hilly event like The Death Ride or simply want to summit these peaks with a cool group of riders, this series promises to challenge you in a fun, supportive way.

Details for this series and all our rides and events can be found on our calendar at

And if you're training for The Death Ride, make sure to check out Savvy Bike's 5th Annual Alpine Altitude Adventure (aka Death Ride) Camp.  This co-ed camp provides three days of climbing on the famous Death Ride passes with expert coaching and friendly SAG support, all with a group of super-fun folks who love to climb, too!

April 28th -- Mt. San Bruno from San Francisco

May 12th -- Mt. Tamalpais via Alpine Dam from Sausalito

May 26th -- Coastal Classic (Old La Honda, Pescadero, Tunitas Creek) from Woodside

June 9th -- Mt. Diablo from Oakland

June 23rd -- Mt. Hamilton from San Jose

Which is your favorite climb?  Is there another bay area climb not on this list that you'd like to bag this season?

In my holidays last year, we did a climb from Mont Clair up to Chabot Observatory - that was fuuuun! I'd recommend it and it's certainly one of the best bike rides I've ever done. Plus Chabot Observatory is excellent fun.

Ooh! That sounds like a great ride, Georgie (and one I've never done). I'll have to put it on my list.
