Whew, July flew by and I forgot to get this up. I hope everyone can come out and join us! :)

Same meeting place (Palo Alto VA parking lot), Same meeting time (9 am).

Same general route. Francois will lead the 'A' group through Huddert while the rest of the ride goes through the maze and get a head start on Canada.

The ride usually breaks up into two groups (possibly three depending on riders) with multiple regroups.



Here's the map of the VA parking lot and where to meet.

No go for me... I already have family plans. If there's another one on the 10th I can probably make it! :)

ah, forgot to add the route...

here ya go. http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/RBR-4-3-2-08

Francois will lead a little detour before canada for riders looking for a bit of a challenge, but the rest of the ride is fairly mellow.
That map has some errors. I think these are better (but am still waiting for confirmation on the Huddart part):

The classic route: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/RBR-II-4-6-08 - 35 miles, 1700 feet of climbing

And with the Huddart (climbing) extension: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/RBR-Palo-Alto-with-Huddart-extension - 38 miles, 2300 feet of climbing

I'll be there. And as a public service announcement there's some crap (white porcelain?) in the bike lane on Junipero Serra just north of Page Mill that probably won't be cleaned up by Sunday. As I road through it today, I thought to myself, whew, thank goodness that wasn't glass. I flatted anyways.

Hmm... I wonder if some kind soul would go out there prior to sunday with a big broom and brush it away... :)

Can we do two rides a month now that the SVCC ride is getting moved to Thursday mornings?
If there's enough interest, i wouldn't mind running a second one on the 16th or 17th this month. And Al's ride is planned for the 24th.
