Death Ride Training: San Juan Bautista's Fremont Peak

By Bo Crane

Every year that my bike group has trained for the Death Ride, we've always included biking up Fremont Peak, outside of the mission town of San Juan Bautista, between Gilroy and Salinas. And every year, it's kicked our butts. Want to know what the Death Ride is like? Go bike 3,000 foot Fremont Peak. The ride up from the Highway 156 stoplight compares to the Death Ride's Monitor Pass. Doing five round-trips would give you comparable mileage and ascent to the Death Ride's five passes, minus the Sierra altitude.
