Tuesday Hills M Pace


This week we will ride over Palomares and climb Dublin Canyon and Schaefer Ranch.  We will have a nice descent back into Castro Valley, stopping for coffee and empanadas at Pampas Cafe before returning to the start.  (Thanks for the suggestion, Julie G.!)

Bring water, money for coffee, snack, or lunch because, as always, we will definitely stop for the well deserved break. Rain, significant chance of rain or poor riding condition cancels. A ride cancellation email will be sent to by the ride leader 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 on the morning of the ride. Barry Saeed:, 510-508-1187
