moderated MMRR cancelled due to air quality

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…

The route is like:

We'll have a coffee (and pie) stop at Gizdich Ranch. It's longer and more climbing than the typical Sunday Social, but at least the air should be good.

As Julie just emailed, the air quality is forecasted to be bad through the weekend. So I am cancelling the ride and it becomes a show and go. 

If you ride please be safe and wear a space suit with oxygen or just hold your breath and close your eyes.

I just saw the late night weather forecast for tomorrow, and it is predicted that there will be unhealthy levels of air quality for the entire SF Bay Area for Friday, November 9, 2018. Therefore, I am canceling the Friday Bike Club ride for that date. The ride now becomes a Show and Go. If anyone decides to ride, please be careful.

New Start Location!  Meet at 9:00AM for an 9:15AM start from the parking lot at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge at the end of Marshlands Road and we head across the bridge to various destinations. 

For a flat ride we head through East Palo Alto and along a few paths to Shoreline Park for lunch.

We always stop for coffee and riders are welcome to head back on their own if they know the way. Usually we ride without route sheets so we regroup as necessary and no one is left behind. Bring $ for lunch.
