I was thinking we could climb Page Mill, descend Alpine, Up/down Haskins, lunch in Pescadero, Stage, Tunitas, descend Kings, etc..

I'd ride from home... doing Crestview, etc... on the way home.

Me and Chris were thinking about a ride this Saturday as well. I'd be game but, of course, I'll be at the back of the pack.

I'm taking a Montebello newbie up there on Sat., but it'll be an early morning (take off from Arastradero/Foothill at 8 am) likely short one. If anyone is interested in incorporating that into their longer ride that morning, you are welcome to join us.

I'm taking the Alto Velo B-Ride to the coast. Old La Honda, 84 to San Gregorio, Stage, Hwy 1, Tunitas Creek, Kings, etc. Should be great weather for January.

That's what I'm thinking, weather should be awesome for the coast side... however... the tandem might not fit in well with the AV B-ride.

I'm doing a super-early ride from the San Mateo Library with a friend from work. Should be a quick, relatively flat 60 miles. Just down Canada, over to foothill to Foothill College and back to San Mateo. A little flat for you maybe, but I want to go easy on my knees anyway.

Oh to edit, probably leaving San Mateo Library at like, 8am.

Are you going to take Crystal Springs? You should just hop on with us.

Are you doing the B-Ride then? I doubt we have time to go all the way out to the coast but maybe we could run up OLH.

Still not sure what we are doing. Probably not the B-ride, since I want to hit up Pescadero for lunch if I am out that way.

Still awaiting other responses.

Turns out my ride is leaving at 7:30 now. Getting up and being on time is surely looking like the hardest part of the day.

On-call weekend, so nothing for me. I guess it's a weekend of night riding for me.

Karate tomorrow morning (and a student's belt test so I have to be there) and orchestra concert Sunday. Guess I will try to get out for a short ride tomorrow afternoon.
