Sat Mines Rd ride 50 mph

This is the annual pre-Halloween ride out Mines Rd. to the Junction Cafe and back. 50 miles. Starts and ends at the pumpkin patch on Mines Rd. (Better to park on the road pulloffs, not at the patch itself to avoid a ride on dirt.) To get there, take the North Livermore Avenue exit off 580, go south through Livermore about five miles, turn right on Mines Road, go 1.4 miles to Joan's Farm. Map to the start at 9:30 start.

Club Revival?!

Revival Ride Update: 9 Touchstone Riders showed up for Saturday's club ride in Fairfax (10/18/08); 6 of them featured here at Biketoberfest. We cut the ride to 40 miles in hopes of getting to the brews sooner than later.


With the races finally over, Biketoberfest seems to be the perfect time to kick off the fall season with some mellow rides. All riders welcome to join in on a casual road ride (approx. 40 miles; consistent pace with limited stops) this coming Saturday, culminating in time to for some beer tasting, music, and food at Biketoberfest in Fairfax.

When: Saturday, October 18, 2008
Where: Riders will meet at Fairfax Coffee Roastery (4 Bolinas Road, Fairfax) at 9:15am (earlier if you need your java!)
Roll-Time: 9:30am sharp!!
Route: TBD but will head north toward Tomales Bay. Plan for 40+/- miles! Bring money for potential bakery stop.

Hope to see you all next week!!

Wanna Climb Some Hills?

Senor Rossi sent this to me today and I thought it looked pretty interesting. One could easily make this part of a longer ride, and actually having someone time you is a bonus. It's open to all ability levels.
