Thursday is Farmers Market at the Kaiser offices just off Paseo Padre from 10 to 2pm.  Get your backpack and ride over and pickup some great produce and fruit.  If you have a bike with a rack, but no panniers, you can easily tied a plastic 4 or 5 gallon bucket to it.

Here's how:  Get a length of wire, and wrap one end to the rack securely.  Next, loosely position the bucket so a flange is in contact with the rack for support.  Make sure you position the back far enough back to clear the heal of your foot.  Dry fit the amount of wire needed to make a look around the bucket to the rack.  Shorten this amount a few inches to allow for built in slack and stretch.  And twist the wire onto the rack so it is small and secure.  Now push the bucket on.  Should fit very snugly and securely.  You may need to try it a couple of time.

I know this technique works bc I have used it myself several times when in a pinch.

Not to mention if emergency personnel were required to respond to an accident, taking them away from more critical cases - and while I never want to go to an ER, I especially don’t intend to have to go now.

Re: Ride Calendar Updates

Daniel Karpelevitch
 

I agree that while riding in itself is not problematic, riding in the sort of groups that clubs ride in does not follow the social distancing guidelines. Pre- and post-ride socializing, coffee stops, etc. are not compatible with the current situation we are in. Also, and I mean no disrespect, but a significant proportion of club members are in the high risk age range. With that, I agree with the decision to suspend club activities. For those wanting to ride alone, I would suggest utilizing the club's library of routes.

locked All FFBC Rides Canceled until Further Notice #RideCanceled

David Walker
 

All,

The Bay Area has COVID-19 hot spots that will continue to spread. The CDC has advised against gatherings in high-infection areas, and USA Cycling has advised against all group cycling. Many club members, including some of our most active ride leaders, have been instructed to self-isolate.

 

For the protection of club members and to aid in the efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, especially those in high-risk categories, the FFBC board has decided to cancel all rides until further notice. We will resume club rides when the crisis has passed.

 

Keep yourself safe! Follow the CDC's guidance on how to protect yourself. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html)

Route/Start Change - Thursday Morning Coffee Ride

Lori Sommer
 

Hello Thursday Coffee Riders,

Due to the two BART trips planned, I'm postponing the "Ken's Two Bridges" ride.  I'm sorry to disappoint people that already let me know they were taking the time off to join us for this wonderful ride.  I'm disappointed too. 

I was just going to change the route to something out of Castro Valley (where people are able to drive or ride to the start) but everything is so unsettled at the moment that I'm reluctant.  I just saw the news that the Governor has asked seniors to stay at home.  I'm not sure what will change by Thursday so I'm just putting the start back to Sprouts.

We will wait and see and hope for the best.

Lori

 Thursday Morning Coffee Ride From Sprouts
WhenThu, 19 March, 09:30 – 13:30
WhereSprouts Farmers Market, 6399 Jarvis Ave, Newark, CA 94560, USA (map)
DescriptionLength: 25-35 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M

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). 

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 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. 

Extreme temperatures, construction or the whim of the ride leader may modify the route. Rain cancels, check https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics, email or call! me!

Primavera Workers' Ride: Ride Leaders, Workers & SAGs Needed

Barry
 

Even though the Primavera's status is uncertain, we are still planning to go ahead with the workers' rides on April 11.  To participate, you still need to sign up to volunteer for the Primavera at Primavera – Volunteers.  

We still need a volunteer for the Muirwood rest stop and two more SAGs.  You may sign up for these critical roles at 
Primavera – Volunteers.
  
We need several ride leaders!  

  • 25 Mile Fun Ride: L & T paces
  • 100K: M, B & F paces (and an M- pace if someone is interested)
  • 85M: M, B & F paces
  • 100M: M+, B, & F paces (Donna and I cover the M pace)

Please contact me directly at baruch.saeed@... if you are willing to be a ride leader.  Let me know which distance and pace, and provide your preferred mobile number and email for the calendar.

Thanks!

Barry
