Early-Bird Ride #4: Fremont (12/17/2011)

Date: Saturday, December 17
Meet time: 9:30 a.m.
Ride-out time: 10:00 a.m.
Meeting place: Parking lot at Villa and Franklin streets, Mountain View (across from the Tied House) (map)

Rain policy: Rain cancels
Category: 2 - medium pace (10-12 mph)
Terrain: 1 - mostly flat

For our final ride, we'll do a big loop around the southern end of San Francisco Bay. This means that our route will be almost totally flat, except for crossing the Dumbarton Bridge! After we ride through the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, we'll pass through Newark on our way to a lunch stop in Fremont. Then it's into Milpitas and San Jose on some multi-use trails that take us into Sunnyvale for our ride along the edge of Moffett Field and our return to Mountain View.

Total climbing on this ride is only about 330 feet, according to Strava.

If you're planning to do our Distance Training rides beginning in mid-January, the early-bird rides are perfect for getting you back up to speed and distance. If you're a new ALCer, these rides are a great introduction to the people and ways of AIDS/LifeCycle.

This ride is Caltrain- and VTA-friendly. The first southbound train of the day leaves SF at 8:15 and arrives in Mountain View at 9:29. We're about four blocks from the station. If you're a veteran of the Mountain View rides, note our new meeting location this year! It's just one block away from our old spot.

RSVPs are requested but not required.
