Just wanted to share with everyone that the B ride today was surrounded by cherry blossom along part of the route in Dublin and San Ramon along Dougherty Road. It’s just beautiful. Should go check it out if time allows. 
Again, it was a beautiful ride with a fun group.

TMCR - Route

Lori Sommer
 

Hello Thursday Riders,
Randy, Judy and Steve will be leading for me. If the group is large, they will head to Starbucks at Las Palmas.  If it is smaller, they may head to Mission Coffee.  The route is the hills of Fremont. Please print the attached route sheet.  Have a good time and I will see you next week.
Thanks,
Lori

 Thursday Morning Coffee Ride From Sprouts
WhenThu, 17 February, 09:30 – 13:30
WhereSprouts Farmers Market (map)
DescriptionLength: 25-35 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M


Specific Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/37411214
Ride Leaders: 
Randy Fewel 510-468-6963, jailteacher@...
Judy Young 510-331-9367, sjsyoung3@...
Steve Young 510-331-6764, sjyoung2@...

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). 

The specific route for this third 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. 

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. 

DISCLAIMERS: 
This is a no drop ride but the group can be on the larger side and will break up as we progress along the route especially as it is a T/M ride.  Riders are expected to be proficient in following their route sheet or using their GPS in case they are separated. We will wait at regroups for all riders.  

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