Elevation profile: Bike ride from Scotts Valley to Los Gatos
See Cyclelicious cycling blog for the description, or look at the route on gmap-pedometer. This is the elevation profile from Scotts Valley, CA (in Santa Cruz County) to Summit Road. I started at 500 feet elevation, dropped down to about 100 feet above sea level, and that last climb took me to nearly 1800 feet. Total distance today was 53 miles in 3 1/2 hours.
A guy I know in Scotts Valley claims to ride from his home to his work in San Jose in an hour and forty minutes. He takes a shorter route, but still that's an amazing pace.
