    The Official Memorial Ride Sat. Foothill college

    We're getting a group together to ride from 92/Canada to Foothill for the Memorial on Saturday.

    Hey everyone, copied this from Kristy's Memorial site

    Memorial Ride


    Team Roaring Mouse Cycles and Third Pillar Racing Team are holding a joint
    memorial ride this Saturday March 15th, to honor the lives of Kristy Gough and
    Matt Peterson, our two teammates killed on Steven's Creek Canyon last Sunday
    while on a training ride. We welcome friends, family, fellow cyclists and all those
    whose lives have been touched by Matt and Kristy. Our ride will include a visit
    to the site of the crash site for those to share their memories

    When: Saturday, March 15th

    Where: Leaving from Foothill College

    12345 El Monte Road,
    Los Altos Hills, CA 94022

    Google map to location:http://tinyurl. com/2b6qvb

    **We kindly request you do NOT drive out to the crash site during this time, as
    we need to keep cars to a minimum in the area, given the road conditions.

    Time: Meet at 2:30pm, ride by 3pm

    Length: 30-45 minutes to the crash site. Base pace (ie, mellow). No drop.

    I may bailout on the TT if the times conflict. I'm heading down and represent NorCal if anyone else is up for it lets work it out. I might even head out from Canada/92 and cover their last ride route.

    Pete you could do Canada to Sand Hill to FH Expy to El Monte and meet them at the start of their ride. I don't think there will be any conflict since the TT starts pretty early, with only 1 min intervals.

    Yeah if you're talking about the Beat The Clock TT on CaŮada Rd., that will be over with in *plenty* of time to make it back down to Foothill College by 2:30 (3:00).
    Can you pass the test?

    I plan to bail on the TT and just do the memorial ride (because I don't want to drive down there twice from SF). How long is the ride from Canada/92 to Foothill college? I'd be up for that to save some driving and get in a few more miles on the bike.

    Distance is about 15 miles, mostly flat/light rollers.

    Like I said, you could easily do the TT in the morning and still do the Memorial Ride, even if you were the very last TT start. If I were not tied up already, I'd make a day of it: do the TT in the morning, ride back down to Palo Alto or Los Altos and grab some lunch, then head over to Foothill for the ride.

    I think I'd be down to do the ride after the TT.

    Let's see (for me.. thinking aloud here):

    - 15 miles to the start of TT
    - 10 mile TT
    - 15 miles to Memorial Ride (with lunch along the way)
    - 14 mile Memorial Ride
    - 25 miles home

    So around 80 miles (plus trainer warm-up time at the TT). I might do this.

    Pizza Man, and others wanting to do the TT, I can join you on the ride back.

    Iíve decided to skip the TT this time. It starts around 8AM, so Iíd want to be there by 6:45 to warm up. I already need to leave Sunday at 5:15 AM for the Zamora road race & I need to catch up on sleep. Iíll sleep in Saturday & just show up at Hwy 92 & Canada at 1:30 (leaving by 1:45) to ride down to Foothill College to join the memorial ride.

    Feel free to meet me at 92 & Canada or somewhere along the way. Iíll be the guy in the Morgan Stanley kit.

    Chris

    Sounds like a good plan.

    Anyone else want to meet up at 1:30 at Canada & 92?

    EDIT:
    What about this route (to get to the start of the memorial ride), instead of the standard Foothill Expy option?

    Thanks for the route, this looks good. I think we should try to leave by 1:35.

    Anyone leaving out of San Jose? I'm actually thinking about CalTrain to Mountain then head over the Foothill. Would lie to meet at 92 and Canada but not sure on how to get there.

    Marco:

    I'll join you at Canada and 92 for the Memorial ride. Do you think 1:30 leaves us enough time?

    The memorial ride group is meeting at 2:30, but not leaving until 3PM, so we should definitely be there before 3PM.

    Maybe a bit earlier even.

    Like meet at 1, leave by 1:15-1:20.

    Both this route and the FH Expy option are the same distance, around 19.5 miles.

    Depending on who shows up, completing either in under an hour might be difficult.

    OK, I can be ready to leave by 1:15-1:20.

    Is this ride going to be rain or shine? The forecast looks like rain for the rest of this week, with a chance of thunderstorms on Saturday.

    They've promised very light rain if any. I'm gonna bring my Zoe bag with some rain gear if needed. It was mentioned that it will be cooler, so make sure to dress warm.

    I'm riding my bike from the city to Canada/92 meet at 1pm. Does anyone else want to ride down with me? probably end up being a century or so. I just feel like being on my bike all day, just one of those things.
