Meet at 8:30 am for an 8:45 am start. We'll warm up with short climbs in Fremont and to the Dog Park at Ed Levin County Park. We'll then climb Calaveras Rd and Felter Rd to the summit at Sierra Vista Park. We'll turn around and ride back, with detours onto Marsh Rd, The Wall, and Sandy Wool Lake. We'll stop for a well-deserved break at Starbucks/Noah's in Milpitas. (Bring money for coffee/snacks.)
Our coffee break is at mile 43.6 so bring plenty of water and snacks. Don't expect cell phone service for long stretches. Bring two tubes just in case!
Rain, significant chance of rain or poor riding condition cancels. A ride cancellation email will be sent to https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics on the morning of the ride if it is being cancelled (no email means the ride is on). If you are unsure of the ride status, call or text ride leader.
