PLEASE NOTE THE ROUTE CHANGE...Back by popular demand...Ralston Bike Bridge and Dianda's!  Bring money!  Sweets abound!

Spoiler alert...We will include some stretches of Alameda de las Pulgas/San Carlos Ave which may be a more busy than we are used to.  Every rider is encouraged to be aware of their own surrounding and ride safely, rather than "just follow" the person in front.

ROUTE CHANGE:  Let's visit the Ralston Bike Bridge before it closes.

Sign in at 9:00 am and roll at 9:15 am.  Start at the base of the Dumbarton Bridge at the end of Marshland Rd. Proceed to Burgess Park for a quick stop, then climb Woodside Rd and proceed along Canada Rd to the Pulgas Water Temple. Continue on Canada Rd then take the Ralston Bike Bridge for a stop at Dianda's for Fedorettis. Traverse some scenic neighborhood streets and go back over the Dumbarton to the start.

DRIV ERS:  In the past, thieves have broken into vehicles at the base of the Dumbarton and at the Don Edwards Visitor Center. Break-ins can happen anywhere, especially where there are few people around. Wherever you park, do not keep valuables in your car, and do not have anything visible that might attract thieves. If you're concerned about parking at the base of the Dumbarton, you're welcome to park elsewhere and ride to the start or to meet us at Burgess Park.

A significant chance of rain, heat, or poor air quality cancels. A ride cancellation email will be posted to https://ffbc .groups.io/g/in fo/topics on the morning of the ride (no email, means the ride is on).
