The Gate of Heaven (Gravel Version)
Enjoyable midweek rides are very possible near the city.
Here's a look at my favorite loop. It has a little bit of everything. A short gradual climb to warm up the legs, a fast downhill / almost flat section, a short and steep off-road climb, plenty of wonderful views along the way, and the whole route is mostly away from cars.
Note: There are many ways to do this route. This is my preferred version.
A step up for beginners or for the time crunched athlete looking for good riding.
