*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Ride to the coast and leave the valley heat. But if Alba is too steep, take Felton-Empire - you'll have it beat. Then cruise over the breezy hills and through the shady woods to the languid stream along Smith Grade. Optional is Swanton. You can skip it but still lunch at the Davenport Bakery and then end a 35 mile ride with one last, long, climb up Bonny Doon. Driving directions: from Los Gatos take Hwy 17 south; exit at Mt. Herman Rd in Scotts Valley; right on Mt. Herman Rd towards Felton; just before Graham Hill Rd, left into the Safeway shopping center; park near Graham Hill, furthest away from Safeway.
