Well we hoped the air quality would improve but doesn’t look like it. So the ride is cancelled. It. Now becomes a show and go. Remember scuba gear or space suit or hold your breath.

Louis and I have decided that since we were not able to do last Saturday’s ride through Los Altos by way of Purissima and Elena, we will replace this Saturday’s Portola Loop ride with the Los Altos ride. Coffee break in Los Altos at Le Boulanger. 

We will make a call probably by Friday evening as to whether the ride is cancelled due to poor air quality.

Rain will help, but we probably won’t be done with the smoke until after the fire is out.

And the fire is only 40% contained so far.

Hello Club Members,

FFBC is beginning our second headlight giveaway event.  We are happy to receive your secondhand headlights and taillights to be given a useful life.  They will be installed on known night time bicycle commuters who don't currently use lights.  Like many cyclists, you may have a few of these unused units making clutter.  Instead, please drop them off at my house anytime.

My address is 423 Becado Dr, Fremont, 94536.

Regards,

Wynn Kageyama

M pace ride is cancelled, too. Per club rules the ride is now a show and go.  Better yet, go to spin class and stay inside.

The forecast for Monday is improving, but still unhealthy. I’m cancelling the MMRR and per club guidelines, it becomes a show and go. If you do ride, consider scuba gear…
