Just when you thought you didn't have enough RoadBikeReview rides to attend, we're having a third one in June. On Sunday June 22nd, Al from Integrate Performance Fitness will be leading a ride starting from his Studio. Check out the details below..


Pre-Ride
- We're opening the doors at 8am for coffee, bagels, fruit, etc.
- riding position evaluations: we'll do this on a trainer to check joint angles, any areas of aches and pain people may have, etc for anyone interested. It won't be a fitting, we'll check how people are moving, and make suggestions where we can.

Post Ride:
- chair massage at $1/minute
- people can shower if they'd like
- post ride snacks for recovery!
- drinks
- a 10-15 minute foam roller + flexibility session. If people have a foam roller, they should definitely bring it.
- fitness evaluations to check for areas of aches/pains, muscle imbalances

We are the 4th driveway on the right hand side after you turn onto Fayette off of San Antonio Road. Look for the red door and navy blue awning. There is additional parking across the street in the lot beind Rasputin Records.

For more ride details or to get directions, please give us a call at (650) 941-9148, or send an email to [email protected].

Sounds interesting. I'm interested in doing this ride. Any idea how many miles this is going to be? Not that it should make any difference to me...

It will be essentially the same distance/elevation profile as the ride that leaves from the VA Hospital give or take another 1-2 miles.

Nope, we'll have a couple of them there. I also want to let of the all of the riders who join us know they will get a two week pass to our Mon/Wed 6:30-7:30pm cycling specific score strength group session starting on Monday the 23rd.

Hmm... I'm tempted to tell my friends in your area to check this out--

However I've been hounding them to come try out racing in an uphill TT in the Mt. Diablo Hill Climb... which is on the same day. :( I've been harassing them about it for at LEAST a few weeks.

If the TT has ice cream sandwhiches and chair massage at the finish line, then I'd do that. If not, you guys should join us. :)

Hopefully they'll have a slow group because my buddy just bought his first road bike and I've asked him to come along.

Plus I'm not exactly going to be droppin' the hammer either!

ROUTE UPDATE, Pace Information

There is a slight tweak to the route:

Instead of taking El Camino to Arastradero at the beginning of the ride, we'll take Los Altos Avenue off of El Camino, R on Edith, R on Foothill.

We're looking to have three groups with varying paces:
A: Attack Francis to see how his bike of the month responds.
B: You'll be able to see people attack Francis, but are happy to let the break go.
C: A more casual pace for lots of sunshine and scenery!

4 days in Downieville? Now that is sacrifice. I hope they are paying you extra for that :p

In that case I'm in! :thumbsup:
It looks like I won't be making it to this ride because my wife wants me to take the kids out on a ride instead. I'll probably see you folks out on Canada Road but I'll be following my two kids on my mountain bike.

If you're in dire need of socks, it might be best to go get some plain ones in the mean time. :thumbsup:

Is your buddy coming with his new carbon?
