E-Bike To & Through The Redwoods


The weather outlook for this Saturday is clear skies. Let's take advantage of the break in the rain and some great weather and ride through the redwoods to the top of Skyline and back on e-bikes. You can do it! 

BOSCH e-bikes are not required, but recommended (we have many for sale if you are interested). If you have one, bring it! Let's make a little buzz up the mountain and see what these bikes can do. 
This ride will start sharp at 7AM from the Motostrano/Suburbanbikes shop at 926 Broadway in Redwood City 
It's about 13 miles each way and very beautiful. The ride itself should last about 3 hours and we'll ride up 2000 feet of elevation and back down it so make sure your battery is well charged. 

We'll start off in Redwood City and make our way up to Woodside, through Huddart park and up the winding King's Mountain Rd. At the top we can stop to rest and take pictures and have a snack.  
What to bring
You: have a clear head and be ready for a good ride on a quiet country road
Water: one or two bottles of water
Snack: energy bars for the ride
Tools: spare tube
Rain gear: Just in case 
Camera: for the beautiful wet Redwood Forest. 
Note: This is an all paved ride up to the top of Skyline and back. The roads will be wet and full of slippery leaves. It's not a race and safety is first. The road itself is normally quiet but expect a car or motorcycle to pass you respectfully.
