    6 am ride near Santa Clara - Sunnyvale

    I've been trying to get into a regular routine of doing before work rides. However, it's just waaaay too convenient to wake up, then go back to bed ... figuring I can sleep another hour before driving into the office. By having a group ride, it will force me to get out on the road.

    Anyone up for a Tue/Thur or Mon/Wed/Fri 6 am ride? I know, it's insane, but it's one way to get the mileage in.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Man, if I was in the South Bay I'd ride with you. Unfortunately I don't think I could make it down there at 6am from San Francisco I'm looking to do the exact same thing up here. Aside from class I've got pretty much all day to ride, but unless I get out in the early morning I procrastinate, do other work and end up only getting in a shorter late afternoon ride. If you can't find someone around you through BF, try Craigslist, I've seen a few postings for riding buddies.

    Thanks Jeff. I wasn't actually expecting many responses, but thanks for yours anyways.

    Can you give more details on start location, route? I might be able to do it on Fridays. I usually have zone2 or zone1 with few short intervals (if it's race weekend) 2 hour ride on Fridays. I usually ride near that Nasa Air port. It's kind of boring, but I don't have to deal with red lights (can just turn right and circle the block when I come to one). Might not be your "cup of tea" thought. My ride "starts" near the Intel on Mission college Blvd.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
    Stay calm and bring a towel.

    hey, jeff, i live in SF and like to cross the bridge on weekdays to ride the paradise loop and other marin routes. 6 AM is probably too ambitious for me, but if you're ever interested in starting a little later -- anywhere from, say, 8 AM or 10 AM -- let me know.

    (It's funny -- on weekends I'll commit to a 6 AM start time without much protest, but on weekdays, I'd rather wait until it warms up a bit.)
