Yikes - although the link in the earlier message had the correct ridewithgps number shown, it was actually sending you to the old route up Kilkare. I've corrected it on the calendar and here it is below. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks, Ken.
Hello Thursday Coffee Riders,
My apologies to anyone that has printed or downloaded the route. I've decided to change the route for tomorrow - something a little flatter because descents will probably still be wet. We meet at 9:30AM in Sunol, at the gravel lot across from the train station, and climb Foothill, cross the Verona Bridge, and head thru Pleasanton to Sycamore Valley Park and then try a new coffee shop - Story Coffee (124 Maple Street, Livermore). We will return via the Arroyo Bike Path, Vineyard and the normal route using First Street and up Foothill back to Sunol. I hope you can join me. If you're disappointed about the lack of climbing, arrive early and finish Kilkare by 9:30am or later on the route, go off route through Holdener Park and join us for coffee if you're familiar with the area (not on the route sheet). Please print our route sheet and/or download the ridewithgps).

Thursday Morning Coffee Ride - Sunol Start
WhenThu, 30 December, 09:30 – 13:30
WhereGravel lot across from Niles Canyon Railway, 6 Kilkare Rd, Sunol, CA 94586, USA (map) DescriptionLength: 28 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M
This week the route starts from the gravel lot across from the Sunol Train Station.
Due to probable wet road conditions I've changed the route to something flatter.
We will climb Foothill and head into Pleasanton and out Vineyard to Sycamore Valley Park. Then we will take Arroyo toward downtown Livermore and stop for coffee at Story Coffee on Maple Street at mile 15. The return will head toward Stanley but we will turn off when we get to Isabel and take the Arroyo bike path back to Vineyard and First Street/Sunol Blvd and back up Foothill to Sunol.
Please print the attached route sheet.
