Hey FFBC,
I’m not sure if this is the right venue for this type of question but I was curious if there’s interest in a weekday long and high ride. I work an alternative work schedule that usually means I get 1-2 rides on my off days and they are usually Monday-Wednesday. I like to do 60-100 miles and try to get in 6000-8000ft of elevation gain. I’m usually solo and would love to go as a group but I don’t see group rides that fit this niche. I apologize if this is not the correct method of communication for this type of thing and if there’s a better place for it please point me in the right direction. But even if there are just a few interested I’ll be out on Sierra/Felter/Calaveras road anyway if anyone wants in. Thanks gents and ladies, keep spinning.
Best regards,
Ryan

moderated Short Notice Ride: Ride to Pedalfest

David Walker
 

Pedalfest is in Oakland is this Saturday. I've never been to Pedalfest before, but I know it has bikes (I like bikes), beer (I like beer) and food (I like food). Maybe I'll like Pedalfest then! 

Join Julia and me for a nice, easy ride to the festivities. We'll start from the Starbucks next to the CVS in Warm Springs (46655 Mission Blvd, Fremont). Meet at 8:30 for an 8:45 start. The ride will be 37 miles with minimal climbing and the pace will be T, M. The (tentative) route is here:


They have free bike valet parking but you may still want to bring a lock. Bring some cash for lunch (and beer). After the visit, it is very easy to find your way to BART for a ride home.  

If I have forgotten to mention something, or you have any questions, let me know.

Hey gang I'm planning on doing a non club-related training ride on Wednesday morning from Castro Valley to the top of Mt. Diablo and back. I thought I'd throw it out to the group and see if anyone wanted to join me. I'll be leaving around 8:00 a.m. Please email me directly if you're interested so we don't spam the group. 

Thanks!

Tom

Morning members!  

There is a correction to my original email in the August Ride Calendar regarding the Wednesday night Pizza rides.  There WILL BE Wednesday Pizza rides in August with the exception of the 5th Wednesday, August 29th (no pizza ride).  Tim and Robin will be leading the rides.  

Instead of pizza, it will be Burritos at Chipotle in Newark.  Check the ride calendar for details.
