I am unable to ride today so Ken is substituting for me.
Have fun! See you next week.
Tomorrow we are back to our "regular" start at 9AM. Come join us for a ride before the rain starts on Friday. If you'd like to meet along the way, please feel free to do so. If you text me in advance, and you have an Apple phone, I will invite you to follow me for the day on the app "Find Friends". Then you will know where the back of the group is located on the route and can easily join in. I hope to see you tomorrow!

Thursday Morning Coffee Ride - REI to Alum Rock
WhenThu, April 5, 9am – 1pm
WhereREI, 43962 Fremont Blvd, Fremont, CA 94538, USA ()
DescriptionLength: 34 miles
Terrain: 2, 3; Pace: T, M
Meet at 9:00 for a 9:15 start. We are riding to Alum Rock. Since REI isn't open use the facilities at Starbucks or wait until we reach the Alviso Adobe in Milpitas.
We will ride along the foothills and once we get into the park, there are options to head straight to the Visitor's Center or climb the Inspiration Loop and/or Miguelita Road. Also, you don't have to go all the way to the park...you can turn early to coffee to reduce milage significantly. If you are a slow climber, but want to do the extra climbing, please be considerate of the group and turn around when you see the faster riders returning OR bring yourself to coffee on your own.
We will have lunch at Noah's Bagels/Starbucks ($) before heading back on a flat route, with no regroups.
Extreme temperatures, park closure, construction or the whim of the ride leader may modify the route. Rain cancels, check https://ffbc.groups.io/g/info/topics, email or text me.
