Thursday Morning Coffee Ride

Lori Sommer

Let’s get the year started right!  We are headed to Alum Rock and there are lots of options - go right to coffee, u-turn at Penetencia, go directly into the park, climb inspiration and/or climb Miguelita. Your choice. I hope to see you at REI - 9:30.

DescriptionLength: 34 miles Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M We are riding to Alum Rock. Since REI isn't open use the facilities at Starbucks or wait until we reach the Jose Higuera Adobe in Milpitas.  We will ride along the foothills and once we get into the park, there are options to head straight to the Visitor's Center or climb the Inspiration Loop and/or Miguelita Road. Also, you don't have to go all the way to the can turn early to coffee to reduce milage significantly. If you are a slow climber, but want to do the extra climbing, please be considerate of the group and turn around when you see the faster riders returning OR bring yourself to coffee on your own.  We will have lunch at Noah's Bagels/Starbucks ($) before heading back on a flat route, with no regroups.  Extreme temperatures, park closure, construction or the whim of the ride leader may modify the route. Rain cancels, check, email or text me.  Lori Sommer: lorimsommer@..., 510-693-8624
