I do a 53 mile, 5400' ride from Palo Alto up Kings Mountain, down Tunitas, right on Lobitos Creek, left on Highway 1, left on Tunitas.

Sometimes I feel great, sometimes I suffer in that steep section of Tunitas.
Wow. What an awesome ride. 30 or so years ago I lived in Redwood City, and that was my favorite area to ride, though never did that big a loop!
