[RC] Information on the Quicksilver Spring Classic May 17 in the WestRegion - Michael Maul

The Quicksilver Spring Classic 25/50 will be held May 17, 2003 at Henry Coe State Park - near Gilroy, Ca. The ride is put on by the Quicksilver Endurance Club of San Jose. The difficulty is moderate with a 92% completion
rate last year. The views are great with all of Monterey Bay visible at one point in the ride. The wildflowers are in bloom this time of year and the colors will be vivid after all the rain we've had.

A ride report from a previous years ride is at


Henry W. Coe State Park is the largest state park in northern California, spanning over 83,000 acres. Once the home of the Ohlone Indians, the park has a fascinating variety of oaks, manzanita, grasslands, as well as wildlife such as deer, wild pig and turkeys.

Some of the spectacular views you will see as you ride up to Wilson Peak are the Palassou Ridge rising up from Coyote Creek in the northwest, Fremont Peak some 20 miles or so south, the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada to the East, and Monterey Bay glistening in the sun to the southwest.

The ride will have a a 25 mile LD and a 50 mile endurance ride with Scott Sansom as the ride manager. There is a new ridecamp where you don't have to cross the streambeds that the previous ridecamp required. Stevens Ranch is the new basecamp.
