Hey gang. Before the calendars get too filled up, I thought I would throw out a proposal for the much-anticipated NorCal Tandem Rally and Wheelsuckers ride .
My proposal is for Sunday, July 6th. Proposed route for the Wild Ride would be the Bucolic Backroads ride that we did in March. Approx. 70 miles and 4500 ft of climbing - apropos for tandems and wheelsuckers alike. We'd start in Half Moon Bay, go straight down Hwy1 for 25 miles to Gazos Creek. Then we wind inland and ride along some coastal backroads, including a climb up Haskins Hill. This will most likely be a very fast, ride-your-legs off group. Here's the Bikely link: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...Backroads-Tour
For mellower riders, I've mapped out a Mild Ride here: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/147455. This will be 40 miles with 1500 ft of climbing. It's very scenic. Designed for fun and social riding.
Meeting Point: Half Moon Bay Fire Station, corner of Main St. and Higgins Canyon Rd., Half Moon Bay
Start Time: 9:15am
If the group is up for it, we could end up at my house for a BBQ and beer. I also harbor thoughts about inviting the musicians in our midst to bring their instruments and we could do some jammin'. I know, I know, Paula's violin and Ramon's rockin' drums may not go well together, but hey, we'd be breaking new ground!!!
Who'd be up for this? 'Cmon tandem teams - raise your hands...
