    A Tierra Bella Question for Snapdragen or Jobob

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Have they let you know what the exact routes for the Tierra Bella are going to be this year? Will they be the same routes as last year? I went to the Ride Start Locations link from ACTC's web site and found descriptions of the routes for each of the different mileage options and just wondered if those are still correct for this year's ride.

    Thanks, Ladies!

    Looking at the map on the ACTC website, they look about the same - the descriptions you found are for this year's ride. The only change I can see is in the 100 or the 128 milers, it used to go on the Coyote bike path, and up Metcalf. Now it's off the path I think, and down Metcalf.

    Here's the map - the shortest route is in yellow. It's a very pretty ride!

    The ride up to Gilroy Hot Springs is pretty - lots of trees and stuff . It also loops around the reservoirs (Uvas, Calreo), which with all this rain should actually have water in them! They've been pretty low. The Hassler Parkway and Silver Creek are new to me, but if it takes Silver Creek to San Felipe - which becomes Metcalf, I think, it's pretty there too.

    Here's some photos from last year's ride.
