Today we take a break from most of our climbing for an expanded version of the traditional South Bay loop across the Dumbarton Bridge. When we reach the East Bay, we'll continue through Newark and Fremont to Mission Blvd., where we'll have a rest stop in the Mission San Jose district. After that, we'll have our few hills of the day on the way into Milpitas, and then we'll take a short detour into Alviso on our way back through Sunnyvale and Mountain View.

Total climbing on this ride is only about 700 feet. If there is heavy rain the day before the ride, there might be a partial rerouting due to possible flooding.

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.
