    Hey Robert, we want to do this exact ride. We are headed to Santa Cruz this Sunday to do an Ibis and Santa Cruz demo. Did you get shuttled to your starting point? Did you use a shuttle service?

  2. Robert Schumacher

    We self-shuttled that first climb. We drove my truck up, and the swap vehicle was a Subaru. The road up is a little rocky so preference would be to do it with a truck or suv. However, as I said with the Subaru we made it back up in a car. I think there is a shuttle service that runs in that area. I can't remember the guys name. Maybe Google? Or post on mtbr.com in the NorCal forum. I'm sure someone knows his name.

    Is it a short drive from the parking lot? or do you have to go all the way around? I can't really tell from Google maps. The shuttle is from Aptos and you have to ride all the way back. The wife and boy aren't up to an "epic day." I like that I put it on them haha.

    If you are looking at the map below, you make a right on the road where my finish is at. Then there is a dirt road on the right that goes pretty much straight up the hill to where I started. Even though we cut that first climb out it's still a pretty full day of climbing. Getting out from the bottom of Flow and Braille are a long smooth fire road climbs. Not too steep. The short section up to Braille from that climb out is pretty steep. I walked almost the whole thing. The other guys climbed.

    Thanks again Robert. We had a great time! We ended up with a successful shuttle but only had time for Flow Trail.
