1st Saturday of the Month - Calaveras Clockwise, M pace

Donna Luporini Kaplan

Tomorrow is our beautiful ride along Calaveras Road, the clockwise direction. Unfortunately (and fortunately), weather forecasters have been calling for rain; therefore we will send out an e-mail tonight (or by 6:30am tomorrow morning) to let you know if the ride is cancelled. (If it’s a go, the cue sheet is attached; please print your own copy.)

Meet at 8:30 am for an 8:45 am start. This is our traditional "1st Saturday of the Month" ride. We will meet in the Niles parking lot and ride up Niles Canyon into Sunol then on to Calaveras. Our traditional route brings us out in Milpitas and we return via a route that stays close to the hills. Bring $$ for a coffee stop at Noah’s/Starbucks in Milpitas.

Rain, significant chance of rain or poor riding condition cancels. A ride cancellation email will be sent to https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics the morning of the ride if it is being cancelled (no email means the ride is on). If you are unsure of the ride status, call or text the ride leader on the morning of the ride.
