Reminder - Thursday Morning Coffee Ride

Lori Sommer

Thursday Coffee Riders,
I hate to complain because we need the rain but once again the forecasts are conflicting.  I will check the weather and make a call at 7:15.  If I cancel, plan for coffee.

 Thursday Morning Coffee Ride across the Dumbarton
WhenThu, 21 April, 09:30 – 14:00
WhereParking lot at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge (at the end of Marshlands Rd (map) (map)
DescriptionLength: 28 miles; Elevation: 900feet; Terrain: 2,3 Pace: T,M Base of Dumbarton to Old Page Mill-Alpine Road (Starbucks on Avy) Meet at the parking lot at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge (at the end of Marshlands Road) and we will head across the bridge to various destinations.  Although we will be riding across the bay, the specific route for this second 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.  For a flat ride we head through East Palo Alto and along a few paths to Shoreline Park for lunch or along the creek with a bit of shade. For a ride with climbing, we do Woodside Road, Sand Hill/Whisky Hill, Alpine Loop, Arastradero or Edgewood Road. Sometimes the climbing is optional. We always stop for coffee ($) and riders are welcome to head back on their own.  Extreme temperatures, park closure, construction, rain, poor air quality or the whim of the ride leader may modify or cancel the route. Check here for updates: Lori Sommer lorimsommer@... 510-693-8624
