moderated Saturday Conditioning Ride - Livermore Hills (43 miles)

Julia Walker
 

A beautiful California day is predicted for Saturday - come out and ride in Livermore! We start from the train station in Sunol - please park in the dirt lot. Arrive by 8:30 for an 8:45 start.

Today's ride takes us from downtown Sunol through Pleasanton, to the scenic Livermore Valley. Between the wildflowers, the green hills and the vineyards the ride should be a feast for the senses. Previous participants of the Cinderella Classic will be familiar with parts of the ride.

Bring money for coffee/snack/lunch in downtown Livermore.
Length - 43 miles
Route sheet attached

Good Afternoon,

Bring out your shorts!  It will get up to 80deg F tomorrow in San Ramon.

Tomorrow is our trip to Zachary's but we have to ride first.  Actually, you don't have to ride at all, some are just joining us for pizza.  You can too.  In addition to the personal size deep dish pizza they also have pizza by the slice, salads, beer and soft drinks.  Starbucks is just a few steps away.  

Please let me know if you are planning to come for pizza so I can include you in our reservation.  We plan to sit outside so a hat would be nice even though they have umbrellas. Also remember to tip your server so they will welcome us back.

Come have some fun in the sun.

Terrain: 3,4 Pace: T,M

Meet at Central Park in San Ramon. Directions to the parking lot from Fremont: 680N, exit Bollinger, right turn onto Bollinger, left at the light on Marketplace (the turn is finally open again, parking lot on the RHS). We will climb to the top of Norris Canyon (looking for the miniature donkeys and peacocks along the way) and then turn back and head up Bollinger Canyon and look for the ostrich. Both climbs are out and back so you can turn around any time you feel like it. After a regroup at Las Trampas parking lot, we will head back to our cars and drive the couple of miles to Zachary's so we don't have to ride after eating (and Walt doesn't have to worry about riding with his leftovers in a pizza box). No one left behind. Bring $ for lunch. If you know you are coming please RSVP so I can make reservations! Extreme temperatures or construction or whim of the ride leader can modify the route. Rain cancels, check yahoo group, email or call me.

Subject: [ffbc] Tomorrow's Wednesday Ride - In Honor Of Ed Tanaka

I wanted to let you know that tomorrow's ride, starting in Niles, will proceed south to Sweigert Road in San Jose. Then we will climb to the top and spend a few moments remembering our good friend and comrade Ed Tanaka. Ed passed away at this location 5 years ago this month.

Remember to wear mismatching socks (but with a common theme)!

Hello,

We DO have a ride scheduled for next week, the 5th Thursday of the month.  I posted it to the calendar before the beginning of the March however, I posted it to my personal google calendar instead of the FFBC club calendar - my apologies.  It is corrected now.  Thanks, Julie, for bringing it to my attention.  

I hope you can join me.  The current forecast is for 70deg. F and sun!

2018 Primavera - Final notice to register for the ride

James
 

Hi FFBC,

This final notice went out for registration to our Primavera. If you have any friends or family who want to join the ride, let them know it's almost sold out and they need to sign up now at our website.

We also have many opportunities to volunteer and help the club with the ride, and not just on the day of. Check out the link below to see where you're needed and sign up to help.

Thank you,
The Primavera Committee 


__________________________________
 
 
The 45th Primavera Century
is almost sold out!
 
 
__________________________________
 

This is a final notice to all our past riders and registrants. If you have already registered, thank you! About April 10, we will send you some last minute instructions and pointers. Use of Calaveras Road is looking pretty certain. Better yet is that the road will be restricted to Primavera riders with a Sheriff checkpoint.

 

If you haven't signed up, or you have friends who haven't and you want them riding with you, tell them to register now at our website! We are over 90% sold on distance rides and once we hit our cap, that is it.

 

Don't forget we also have a 25 mile fun ride that is great for the whole family or if you're looking for a short ride. This ride is over 70% sold already.

 

If you can't ride and need to transfer your registration, please remember to follow the instructions on our website. If you are not riding this year and would like to be involved, we are still in need of volunteers. See where you can help and sign up here.

 

Thanks again to everyone for all your support this year and past as we work to give you another wonderful Primavera event.

 

 


Thursday Morning Coffee Ride—CANCELLED

Ken Goldman
 

While there may be some dry periods this morning, it doesn’t look like there’s any chance of getting a ride in without getting pretty wet. Not to mention the wind and possible thunderstorms.

Per club policy, the ride is now a Show and Go. If you decide to test out your new rain gear, you might consider carrying a lightening rod.....
