Re: Route - TMCR

Good Morning,

The three forecasts are consistent that there will be rain by 11 although the percentage is varying with one at 30% and two at 70%. Todays ride is canceled and turns into a Show and Go. 

I was looking forward to this route so I’ll move it to next week in exchange for the Sprouts start. 

Enjoy the rain.

Hello Thursday Riders!

Join me as we ride to Old Page Mill, up Arastradero and down Alpine. So far the forecast is 30% rain at 10AM.  I'll check the forecast again by 7:30 AM so watch for an update.

I'm changing the start of the ride for next week...probably over to Pleasanton.

Although we will be riding across the bay, the specific route for this second Thursday of the month repeating ride will be posted here (with an attachment for you to print) as well as to the FFBC email groups ( ) once it is selected.  This is usually done a day or maybe two days before the ride.  Sometimes we ride without route sheets so we regroup as necessary and no one is left behind. 

For a flat ride we head through East Palo Alto and along a few paths to Shoreline Park for lunch or along the creek with a bit of shade. For a ride with climbing, we do Woodside Road, Sand Hill/Whisky Hill, Alpine Loop, Arastradero or Edgewood Road. Sometimes the climbing is optional. We always stop for coffee ($) and riders are welcome to head back on their own. 

Extreme temperatures, park closure, construction, rain, poor air quality or the whim of the ride leader may modify or cancel the route. Check here for updates:
