Route - TMCR

Lori Sommer

Hello Thursday Coffee Riders,

Happy St. Patrick's Day in advance!  Wear something green and join me for a climb up Appian and Stenhammer!  We will have our break at Mission Coffee.  I hope to see you tomorrow unless you are joining Terri's longer ride over the bridge.

Last week we had lunch at Jim T's suggested place (Jim ALWAYS has good suggestions) Cafe Borrone near Kepler Books on El Camino.  My heart sort of sank when I saw the line but actually it moved really quickly and they had plenty of seating for all of us.  We will add it to our repertoire. 


 Thursday Morning Coffee Ride From Sprouts
WhenThu, 17 March, 09:30 – 13:30
WhereSprouts Farmers Market (map)
DescriptionLength: 30 miles,
Elevation Gain: 900'
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M

DETAILS: Sprouts to Appian Way and Stenhammer (climbs optional)
BREAK: at Mission Coffee
Please print attached route sheet.

Wear a SOMETHING GREEN and let's stay close to home. We will meet at Sprouts located in the former Raley's Shopping Center (6399 Jarvis Ave, Newark). 

The specific route for this third Thursday of the month repeating ride will be posted here (with an attachment for you to print) as well as to the FFBC email groups ( ) once it is selected.  This is usually done a day or maybe two days before the ride.  Sometimes we ride without route sheets so we regroup as necessary and no one is left behind. 

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. 

This is a no drop ride but the group can be on the larger side and will break up as we progress along the route especially as it is a T/M ride.  Riders are expected to be proficient in following their route sheet or using their GPS in case they are separated. We will wait at regroups for all riders.  

Extreme temperatures, poor air quality, park closure, construction, rain and/or high winds,  or the whim of the ride leader may modify or cancel the route. Check here for updates:
