Re: Dumbarton bridge

Rob Vieira
 

I'm not aware of a formal ride, but my wife and I saw what was an unmistakably organized ride pack heading down Paseo towards the bridge about an hour ago. During our block or so of walking before we turned, we probably saw 60-80 cyclists go by - possibly more. Mixed frame types (mostly road, but some mountain), no matching jerseys, what appeared to be a SAG motorcycle with them, and another vehicle trailing with flashers on. There had been a small group out ahead of the main pack a bit, and my guess is that they were riding the same route/event. If it was a club of that size, we would have seen some matching jerseys, but we did not.

I'm assuming, for now, that there is an event we just don't know about and the closure is related to that.

Sorry for the late post, we were out of town.

If the bridge is good to go, we can do the backroads of Woodside which is a great ride with good scenery and lots of shade.  If the bridge is out we can go do the south of Fremont and come back through the east part of Fremont including some hills.

Portola Loop this Saturday - 8/17

mbrasseur00
 

Hi all,

This Saturday the 17th we have our monthly ride of the Portola Loop CW but I have been informed that there are signs on the Dumbarton Bridge bike path indicating that it will be closed from 6am to 11am on Saturday. So we will ride out to the Dumbarton Bridge and if indeed it is closed we will turn around and go south to McCarthy Ranch. Then we will have our coffee break at Starbucks at McCarthy Ranch. We will then return back by pretty much the same route to Sprouts Parking lot in Newark. This new route will be around 43 miles and flat.

If the Dumbarton Bridge Bike Path is not closed we do the normal Portola Loop with Willowbrook added and coffee break at Woodside Bakery/Starbucks in the Sharon Park shopping center off Sand Hill Rd.

Hello!

I’ve missed my riding friends!  Tomorrow is my first ride back after a month off.  Thank you so much to Ken, Rob and Ron for leading in my absence. I really appreciate it. Thank you also to Walt!  He sent me 7 get well cards!  

My finger surgery to remove arthritis went well, recovery is slow but I took a short test ride today and although my finger is still a bit swollen, I can use it to brake and shift gears.  Please join me as we ride from Sprouts to Mission Coffee. It will be warm, so bring extra water. I’ll be at the back and skipping some hills.

 Thursday Morning Coffee Ride From Sprouts
WhenThu, August 15, 8:30am – 12:30pm
WhereSprouts Farmers Market, 6399 Jarvis Ave, Newark, CA 94560, USA (map)
DescriptionLength: 25-35 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M

Wear a FFBC club jersey and let's stay close to home. We will meet at Sprouts located in the former Raley's Shopping Center (6399 Jarvis Ave, Newark). 

We will mainly stay in Fremont but ride through Newark and sometimes Union City and Milpitas on occasion. Sometimes the climbing is optional. We always stop for coffee and riders are welcome to head back on their own if they know the way. Usually we ride without route sheets so we regroup as necessary and no one is left behind. Bring $ for 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!

This week's ride features Alpine, with a few new adventures (thanks to our Western Wheelers friends).  On the to the top of Alpine, we will ride by Frog Pond Park.  At the top, Joaquin is an option but not mandatory.  On the way down, we will take a side route to Little People's Park before coffee and snacks at Roberts Market.

The route has several shortcuts if you want to skip some of the climbing or if it gets too hot.  

The cue sheet is attached.  Here's the link:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30773976.

Meet at 8:30 am for a 8:45 am start.  Let’s meet at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge and enjoy some Peninsula hills!

The route is longer, so we will be getting back later. You may return on your own at any time! Bring a spare tube, water, snacks and money for a coffee and snack stop.

A significant chance of rain, heat, or poor air quality cancels. A ride cancellation email will be sent to the https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics by the ride leader on the morning of the ride if it is being cancelled (no email, means the ride is on).
