I think the Devout Coffee building used to be a bike shop. And the coffee is fantastic. I will travel past several Starbucks and Peets, and even Philz, to get to Devout.
Thanks, everyone! I really appreciate it. I was sad there probably wouldn’t be coffee on the coffee ride.
Don’t forget there is the new coffee shop in Sunol, they are cyclist friendly. They have a bike station there, pump, tools, etc.
My mid week group ride have been there and were made very welcome.
Tomorrow, let's climb Kilkare and then head to our "long forgotten" Sunol Regional Park. With the construction of Calaveras Dam complete, I'm hoping (and praying) the truck traffic will be greatly reduced out to Geary Rd. Both loops are out and back so feel free to make it your own ride, at your own pace, as you can always u-turn when you see others heading the other way.
Please bring some snacks and plenty of water. Our "coffee" stop will be at the end of the ride at the convenience store on the corner of Niles Canyon and Paloma. I can't promise coffee at the stop though. We can always drive to coffee in Fremont.
I hope to see you in the morning!

DescriptionLength: 25-35 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M
This week the route starts from the gravel lot across from the Sunol Train Station.
There are lots of places we can go and sometimes a portion of the climbing is optional and mileage can be reduced. Our favorite destinations include the Corner Bakery or Peet's via Kilkare, the water tower and Bernal Bump or maybe out to Panama Red Coffee in Livermore by way of Sycamore Grove/Holdener Park or the climbs out by Signal Hill and the fun descent on Croak Road with lunch at Panera in Livermore. Another favorite is Denica's in Dublin via Windemere. Bring $ for coffee or lunch.
Extreme temperatures, construction or the whim of the ride leader may modify the route. Rain cancels, check https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics, email or call me.
