West Hills Roller Coaster
Come build strength or see something new by mixing the West Hills into your riding schedule. Each week we choose one of two low traffic routes (19 miles/2000 feet of gain, or 22 miles/2500 feet of gain) and then stay together enough that you won’t have to navigate thru all the turns. Both routes start at the west end of the Highway 26 bike path (near the Hwy 26/217 interchange), roll up and down through the West Hills, and make a stop to take in the views from Council Crest. The ride is a bunch of fun (& steep) “ups” that will challenge you, and “downs” that will leave you feeling like a kid again. E-bikes are welcome – bring a fully charged battery! Optional coffee stop near the end of the ride, so bring water and nutrition to get you over the hills.
