PRS10 - Mines Road

Donna Luporini Kaplan

Hello FFBC,

This Sunday, weather permitting, we will try again to go on our weekly PRS ride. This ride is an out-and-back, starting in Livermore. We’ll ride out to Mines Road, then up to the Junction Café, and return back to the start: 62 miles and 4480 ft. elevation gain.  At the time of this e-mail, there is no leader for the M+ group, but we will bring a sign-in sheet for the impromptu ride leader.  


Please take note:

  • Daylight Saving Time starts at 2:00am on Sunday, so be sure to set your clocks ahead on Saturday!
  • Please print the attached cue sheet.
  • Bring plenty of food and water. The Junction Café is a bar & grill with mostly pub food—burgers, pizzas, hot dogs, fries, etc. They serve coffee and sodas (and beer.) 
  • Wear layers; it can be quite cool at the summit. (Last year there was snow!)  
  • Don’t expect cell phone service.
  • Bring two tubes.

    Rain, significant chance of rain, or poor riding condition cancels. A ride cancellation email will be sent to on the morning of the ride if it is being cancelled (no email means the ride is on.) If you are unsure of the ride status, call or text one of us on the morning of the ride.


We hope to see you there!

Donna & Barry
