I checked the temp but neglected to check the wind! We will meet at the start and shorten the route significantly. Please ride to the start if you want more miles but the winds may be very gusty on your way home. Thanks, Barry and Julie for the heads up.

Good Morning Thursday Coffee Riders,
Looks like tomorrow is a fabulous day for a ride. Please join me at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge for a ride to Woodside. I plan to do the Olive Hill Loop Backward but we may decide to do it forward instead. Come vote! Please print the attached route sheet and/or download the route to your GPS device.

Thursday Morning Coffee Ride across the Dumbarton
WhenThu, 10 March, 09:30 – 14:00
WhereParking lot at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge (at the end of Marshlands Rd (map) ()
DescriptionLength: 31 miles; Elevation gain: 1,000'
Terrain: 2,3 Pace: M/T
SPECIFIC ROUTE: Base of the Dumbarton to Backward Olive Hill Loop
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 (https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics ) 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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
