Details: We plan to meet at the Ben Lomond Skate park at high noon. KU at 12:30. We will be taking a scenic ride through the Santa Cruz Mountains. This will not be a high-speed run. This is a scenic tour of some amazing back roads around our beautiful mountains by the sea. We will depart from the skate park and head North on HWY 9 towards Boulder Creek. From Downtown Boulder Creek we will turn left onto CA/236 North. We will then head up 236 and just BEFORE the golf course we will turn left onto Jamison Creek. Up the windy hill and then turn left onto Empire Grade Rd. Head down Empire Grade rd. and just before the Bonny Doon airport you will take a right onto Pine Flat Road. Stay on Pine Flat road and it will turn into Bonny Doon road. Take Bonny Doon Road all the way to the coast. Turn left to head south on HWY 1. Stay on HWY 1 south through the west side of town. Stay on HWY 1 (Mission St.) until you see signs for HWY 9 North. Turn Left on HWY 9 North. Then take the second left on Fern street. Turn Left again onto Coral Street. Follow Coral street down towards Harvey West Park and the Santa Cruz Portuguese Hall will be on your right-hand side. You must have a wristband to enter the gates. Its $10 CASH at the gate.
