(Cancelled due to bad air) *** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Since Calaveras Road north of the dam is closed for the remainder of 2018, we have given up on delaying this ride. From Sonol will go breeze along the creek beside easy Kilkare Road. Then it's south on Calaveras Road to Welch Creek Road for a steep struggle beside Welch Creek. It's a short ride, so you may want to add Palomares, which is a nearby option. E-assisted suicide bikes are welcome but not recommended, especially on steep, technical roads like Welch Creek. Start/finish at the Niles Canyon train station in Sunol. Driving from San Jose take Hw 680 north; exit at Hwy 84 (2nd Calaveras Rd exit); lt on Paloma Way (Hwy 84); lt on Niles Canyon Rd (Hwy 84); rt on Main St into and through Sunol; rt and lt into the station's parking lot.
