Mt. Charlie Group Ride 4/20

Sunday April 20th we will have multiple ride options for you to choose from, for conditioning this weekend. You choose what sounds best to you. All riders will meet at Skypark’s parking lot Sunday, April 20th at 9am. The riders will branch off to the different levels they would like to do.

Mt. Charlie Group Ride Sunday 4/13/08 9am

Sunday we will be holding two conditioning rides starting at 9:00am from the Skypark parking lot (directions below). Hopefully some of you who haven’t been able to make Saturday’s ride can come this week.

David will be leading a more advanced ride that will head up to the summit, for a long and mountainous ride. We’ll wait for people to catch up at the tops, but you will need to be ready for a hard effort.

The shorter ride will be lead out by Monique and the proposed route is about 20 miles, which would go up Bean Creek, to Glenwood then Granite Creek and Glen Canyon to the north side of Scotts Valley and on to Skypark. She is flexible on the route.

4th Annual Mt. Charlie Challenge Bike Ride

The Scotts Valley Educational Foundation (SVEF) 4th annual 100K and 50K ride, “Mountain Charlie Challenge” on May 6, 2006 was a big success. Thanks to all those who helped.

The Metric Century (62 miles) ride climbed to the summit, by wineries and beautiful redwoods, then traveled through Corralitos, Aptos, Santa Cruz and returned to Scotts Valley.

The Half Century (32 miles) had less challenging climbs but still offered a tour through the redwoods, a rest stop at a vineyard, and on to Aptos, returning to Scotts Valley.

The SVEF Mountain Charlie Challenge is a pledge ride to benefit all Scotts Valley public schools. All funds raised will go directly to SVEF to support school programs.
