There are some pictures at the end of the ride that look like there's a vintage filter on it. It's not. I messed up my camera settings and those shots came out poorly. My bad.

This Sunday's FFBC Picnic rides are all set!  The rides all start near Aqua Adventures and tour some of the lovely hills of Fremont.  All club members and guests, not just FFBC picnic attendees*, are welcome to ride.

You have your choice of four great rides:  
  • L,T, The Fun Ride
  • T,M-, kinda like a shorter version of a TMCR ride
  • M, like a Tuesday Hills ride with a little less climbing
  • B, even more climbing and faster than the M ride
More details are on the ride calendar, including ride leader info and RWGPS links to the routes.  Cue sheets are attached to this message.  (If you print double sided and cut down the middle, you'll have two of them.)  For more on what L, T, M-, M and B mean, check out our ride classifications.

Towards the end of your ride, if you're ahead of schedule and need to kill some time, or if you want a snack and have not RSVP'd that you're going to the picnic, there's a Starbucks and other eateries on Las Palmas Ave just after you cross Mission Blvd.  Make a U-turn after crossing Mission to enter the plaza.  You can always go to another place, but please let your ride leader know.

*Afterward, members and guests of members who have RSVP'd are welcome at the picnic. Due to limited space and food, we won't be able to accommodate anyone else.

See you Sunday.
Barry

Recovering Riders,

 

Looks like we’ll have good weather for the Monday Morning Recovery Ride. Let’s meet across from Isherwood Staging Area at 8:30am for an 8:45 roll. We’ll ride to Starbucks at McCarthy Ranch for a coffee stop, with the usual regroup/pickups at Paseo/Bayliss and Paseo/Grimmer. Pace will be a “M” pace. Rwgps route below:

Mid-Week Morning Ride Canceled

Al Quintana
 

It looks like we weren't lucky on the timing of these showers moving through the area this morning, so I'm canceling the Mid-Week Morning Ride. It now becomes a Show and Go.

Be safe,

Al Quintana

Time change for Thursday Morning Coffee Ride

Ronald L. Mitchell
 

The ride leaders for the TMCR have agreed to move the start time for the Thursday Morning Coffee ride to 9:00 AM.
This starts with this Thursday’s ride from Bernal Park in Pleasanton.
We expect it will make it easier to get to the rides with the fall rise in traffic since school started, and be a bit warmer during the ride.

Hi all,

It looks like tomorrow's weather is going to be very unsettled and therefore we are cancelling MMRR for Monday September 19th.

The weather is being rather inconsistent so Louis and I will make a call regarding the ride either by tonight or Monday morning by 7:00am. If there is no email cancelling the ride it means the ride is on.  

We will ride the route to the Panera on 1st Street tomorrow. For details please review the FFBC calendar announcement as we have made some minor edits to the route.

See you in the morning,

CANCELLED: Fun on Alameda Creek Trail

Hello all-
Given 80% chance of rain tomorrow in Fremont, the Alameda Creek Trail ride is cancelled. Hope to bring it back on the calendar soon.

Los Altos/Purissima/Elena Ride with a twist this Sat 9/17/2022 - M Pace

mbrasseur00
 

This Saturday, 9/17/22, Louis and will lead a M pace ride to Los Altos by way of Purissima and Elena. We will have a little addition for this ride. Just before the coffee break we will take a little side ride (less than a mile) to a redwood grove in Los Altos that my wife found and we visited. In my opinion it is really amazing little grove of redwoods. Then on to coffee break in Los Altos at Le Boulanger. 

This is a nice ride through some hills of Los Altos. Bring $$ for coffee and snacks.

All riders must be fully vaccinated.

Meet you at Sprouts parking lot in Newark at 9:00am with wheels rolling at 9:15am.

Please check the ride listing in the Ride Calendar for the ridewithgps route and the cuesheet. Please print the cue sheet for the ride as the ride leaders will not have any copies.


Hope to see you there,
Mike and Louis
