Portola Loop this Saturday - 8/17
This Saturday the 17th we have our monthly ride of the Portola Loop CW but I have been informed that there are signs on the Dumbarton Bridge bike path indicating that it will be closed from 6am to 11am on Saturday. So we will ride out to the Dumbarton Bridge and if indeed it is closed we will turn around and go south to McCarthy Ranch. Then we will have our coffee break at Starbucks at McCarthy Ranch. We will then return back by pretty much the same route to Sprouts Parking lot in Newark. This new route will be around 43 miles and flat.
If the Dumbarton Bridge Bike Path is not closed we do the normal Portola Loop with Willowbrook added and coffee break at Woodside Bakery/Starbucks in the Sharon Park shopping center off Sand Hill Rd.
