Wide Corners at Walnut

Tim OHara
 

All,

Please be careful when crossing Walnut after going up the green bike path on the sidewalk.  On three occasions now I have almost seen bike riders get hit when they have the green light and they advance just as a car sweeps around the wide corner.  I don't really blame the cars, because it is just sooo weird, that the corner juts out so far.  I just don't want anybody getting hurt.  So be careful and watch for the cars coming around the corner.

Good Afternoon,

Someone was unable to access the ridewithgps route so I recreated the link (it looks exactly the same) and updated the calendar.  It has been verified by two.  Sorry!

This is the corrected link:

Good Morning,

Thanks to Ken for leading the TMCR for the last two weeks while I was on vacation.  Tomorrow we will do the Olive Hill Loop Backward.  The route is 30.5miles with under 1, 000' of climbing but there is an easy way to cut the miles by 11.5 and skip the climbing.  Please print your route sheet and join me tomorrow!  The weather and the company will be very nice.

DescriptionLength: 30.5 miles; Elevation: 1000'
Terrain: 2,3 Pace: T,M


This is the specific route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28761919
We will do the Olive Hill Loop Backward tomorrow from the base of the Dumbarton with coffee at Starbucks in Menlo Park. Although the route has us crossing HWY84 at University, we will probably decide to go under the bridge and get on the path around Facebook via HWY 84. There is an option to turn left on Alameda to cut out 11.5miles and all the climbing.  



Meet at the parking lot at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge (at the end of Marshlands Road) and we will head across the bridge to various destinations. 

Although we will be riding across the bay, the specific route for this second Thursday of the month repeating ride will be posted here (with an attachment for you to print) as well as to the FFBC email groups (https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics ) once it is selected.  This is usually done a day or maybe two days before the ride.  Sometimes we ride without route sheets so we regroup as necessary and no one is left behind. 

For a flat ride we head through East Palo Alto and along a few paths to Shoreline Park for lunch or along the creek with a bit of shade. For a ride with climbing, we do Woodside Road, Sand Hill/Whisky Hill, Alpine Loop, Arastradero or Edgewood Road. Sometimes the climbing is optional. We always stop for coffee ($) and riders are welcome to head back on their own. 

Extreme temperatures, park closure, construction, rain, poor air quality or the whim of the ride leader may modify or cancel the route. Check here for updates: info@ffbc.groups.io

Re: Castro Ranch Road now OPEN to bicycles

Donna Luporini Kaplan
 

Hello!

This is to let you all know that Castro Ranch Road between Olinda Road and the Carriage Hills South subdivision has been repaved and is now open to cyclists, thus it is now safe to ride the Three Bears in any direction.

 

Donna Kaplan

 

 

From: Donna Kaplan <luporini@...>
Sent: Sunday, May 23, 2021 6:34 AM
To: 'info@ffbc.groups.io' <info@ffbc.groups.io>
Subject: Castro Ranch Road closed to bicycles until mid-July

 

To: cyclists who have been thinking about riding “The Three Bears”

 

There is a 1.5 mile stretch of Castro Ranch Road, between Olinda Rd (one block east of San Pablo Dam Road) and just beyond the Carriage Hills South subdivision, that will be closed to cyclists until July 18, 2021.  Until mid-July, cyclists who really want to ride the Three Bears can only access Bear Creek Road from Camino Pablo (Orinda) or from the eastern direction (Martinez).

 

I sent notice about this stretch of road—stating that it was very hazardous to cyclists and an accident waiting to happen—to Bike East Bay last October and did not receive a reply. I tried again in mid-March and heard back right away with apologies. Dave Campbell, Advocacy Director at Bike East Bay, subsequently reached out to various agencies, and it took just two days for us to hear back from the City of Richmond Infrastructure Administrator, saying that repaving this stretch of road had been planned but held up because it was such a big job. Of course I know that I (and Dave Campbell) didn’t make this happen, but I like to think that perhaps we pushed it up on the calendar.

 

I will miss riding the Bears, but I am very happy about this outcome.

Alameda Creek Trail Construction - Caution Advised

Gary Schaps <gschaps@...>
 

Last Monday, August 2nd, I rode the Alameda Creek Trail from Coyote Hills to Mission Blvd.  There is a construction detour that routes riders to the gravel trail on the north side. Where that detour crosses under I-880, the trail becomes steep sand.  And where it emerges on the east side, it's steep, deep stones - not gravel.  Caution is advised.

Sunday Social this Weekend

Just a reminder to everyone that we'll be doing the Sunday Social from Bicycle Garage on Sunday (naturally). We'll meet at 9:00AM for a 9:15 start. The route will be something like this:


We'll have to keep an eye on the air quality this weekend, so stay tuned for any changes to the ride which will be posted here.

See you Sunday!

Das Brew Ride now a Show and Go

Robert Tashjian
 

All,

 

The air quality is not getting any better and I’m not comfortable riding in this. Per club policy, the ride is now a show and go. If you ride, be careful. Diana and I will be at Das Brew for beer & snacks, come join us if you like. We’ll be there around 7pm.

Das Brew starting this Friyay!

Robert Tashjian
 

Once again, it’s time for the Friday Das Brew rides! This week we’ll work up a thirst with a short ride to Ed Levin Park, then return to Das Brew to sample Das Brew’s offerings. We’ll meet at Das Brew at 6pm  for a 6:15pm (sharp) start and meet back at Das Brew at ~7:30 to close out the evening with some bicycle comaraderie and Das Brew’s finest. Das Brew will have a food truck there if you desire something more substantial than the rider supplied snacks & goodies that seem to accompany the evening. Seating is Al Fresco (outdoors) so you might want to bring something warm to throw on (eg., jacket).

 

Route for tomorrow: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27922864

 

Sign in will be at Das Brew before the ride, please print or download the route as route sheets will not be provided. If you don’t want to make the climb to Ed Levin, there is the option to either turn around at Calaveras or simply turn from Park Victoria onto Jacklin Rd.

 

Hope to see there,

Rob

Monday Morning Recovery Ride

ROBIN OHARA <PedalPounders1868@...>
 

Monday Morning Recovery Riders,

I will be leading the MMRR on Monday, August 2nd. The route will be the classic Fremont loop with a coffee stop at Panera Pacific Commons.  We meet to sign in at 8:30am at Isherwood and roll at 8:45am.  There will be a regroup at the Chevron station at Stevenson, and at Paseo Padre & Grimmer.  Remember that if you wish to join the ride at these regroup spots, make sure to arrive early enough to meet the group.  The group will no longer wait for a specified amount of time for arrivals.  NOTE: We will try something new regarding the regroup at Chevron.  Although we will stop and pick up riders, we will continue down the road to Baylis Street for those who wish to cross the street to use the restrooms at Lake Elizabeth.


Please check the ride listing in the Ride Calendar for the ridewithgps route and cue sheet. 

Hope to see you Monday.

Hi Donna,

 

I know your question was for Garmin but the wahoo has been a very reliable and easy bike computer to use as well. It has extremely good battery life and the screen is more saturated than the Garmin so the data is more viable to see even at any light angle. I also enjoy the simplicity of editing the data pages on my phone by instead of pushing the buttons on the small computer. I’ve had mine for over 3 years and it is still good as new. I’m not sure if Garmin has this feature but the wahoo has a simplified topagraphy image so I can tell how far along I am on a climb so I can pace myself better.

Hi Donna, 

Lots of good advice on this thread.  I would definitely advise against the 520+.  Read dcrainmaker’s review of the edge 530 and it becomes readily apparent.  I replaced my edge 520 with the 530 mainly because of lack of memory for more complex routes and slow processor performance for navigation.  I actually love my previous garmins, edge 500, 520, but they were just getting too old and not able to keep up with the navigation capabilities of newer computers.  

 

 

Anyhow, the battery life is excellent and I especially like the WiFi capability and automatic ride download to Garmin Connect=>Strava.  

 

There are lots of other feature I like, but as Jay says, it just works and works well.  I’ve owned garmin edge 130, 500, 520, 530 and a couple of Lezyne super micro computers.  All of them had their quirks but I must say that so far, the edge 530 has been the least quirky so far with a really rich feature set and lots of flash memory (16GB) so it should e be good for many years of use.

That’s sort of a sideways complement for Garmin.

For the last Pizza ride, we will do the same route as the first Pizza Ride, but with Pizza at 7:00 to allow for a little more relaxed pace.  

It is Retro night, so if you have an old jersey or bike, this is your chance to use them.  The three routes are flat (about 300 feet total climbing). Route sheets attached.  Look at the ride calendar for loading into your cycling computer

Robin's cell number is also on the cue sheets as I may be late getting to the start.
