Re: PRS 6 Changed back to PRS 7, Grant Ranch!

Kudos, Barry for checking on the status of Corral Hollow Road!! This is the mark of an excellent ride leader.

I wouldn’t have thought about it - but it really would have been disappointing if we got 20 miles into the ride and then had to turn around and go back.

Hopefully, we will be able to do Grant Ranch tomorrow although the weather forecast does call for likely rain in the middle of the night.

Oh, no!  Corral Hollow is closed until at least Feb 19 due to flooding:

We're changing the ride back to PRS 7, Grant Ranch.  Meet at the Downtown Niles parking lot across from H St at Niles Blvd.  Here's the RideWithGPS link:  The RideWithGPS route is accurate but does not have all the regroups.  Please print and bring the attached cue sheet.

  • Grant Ranch's temperature is forecast to be in the upper 30s.  Bring extra layers!
  • Our food break is 45 miles into the ride.  Bring plenty of food and water!
  • Google Maps shows Hwy 130 (Mt. Hamilton Road) as closed past where we turn into Joseph D. Grant County Park, likely due to flooding from the nearby lake and streams.  The park's phone line or webpage don't say anything about it so we should be OK.
This change may be for the best.  The forecast for Fremont/Milpitas/Grant Ranch looks good, while the forecast for Livermore/Tracy is unsettled.

A significant chance of rain cancels.  Please check after 7 a.m. Sunday.  No post means the ride is on.
