Old Page Mill Trail Professional Review and Guide
"One of the most popular cycling roads on the Peninsula —and in the entire Bay Area, for that matter —is Alpine Road in Palo Alto. Weekends find this road heavily traveled by bicycles with riders of all levels of ability. The local bike shops and cycling clubs know about Alpine Road and include it in recommended bike routes. Less well-known is the other Alpine Road, the one that exists on the other side of the mountains. Those in the know call it West Alpine. Blessed with very minimal car traffic and spectacular scenery, but cursed with a long and steep gradient, it doesn't get to see nearly as many bicycles. For those with the stamina and the desire, this is a ride that is not to be missed."
