Great! I'll look forward to it.

My wife is not feeling well again, so I just can't get out for a long ride. I may try to sneak a short one in some time this weekend, but that's about it .

So, what time did you guys go out?
We had the 11AM gig at the Store so I was heading down One between, say, 9:45.
I reached San Gregorio by around 10:15. Obviously, I wasn't on a bike

Sorry guys, I am a bail on this one if it goes off this Sunday 1/25. I have come down with the chest cold from hell. I am home from work resting and my immune system is usually nails so I hope for a speedy recovery. That said, an epic like this would be too much too soon.

I am dying for a pedal to the metal ride with you guys soon though.

This ride sounds like fun.
I grew up in Montara and have never ridden Hwy 1 between Pacifica and Montara.
I used to ride to Pacifica over the crumbling old coast highway to avoid auto traffic.

So is it Saturday January 24 or Sunday January 25?
I may do the early bird RR in Patterson on Saturday.

What's the most efficient way to get to SF from Svale? Foothill, Junipero Serra {fill in blank** Fort Funston, Great Highway to start.

I don't know exactly what route Pete has planned but I wanted to have some mileage figures in mind. Here are some approximate numbers from the Sports Basement. YMMV but hopefully these will be +/- 10 miles

Half Moon Bay: 36
Start of Tunitas: 44
Roberts in Woodside: 58 miles
Entire ride returning via Canada, etc: 94 miles

If I make it I'll be taking BART or Caltrain to SF, riding to the start, and then heading home after Roberts.

ps, are we meeting at 8am or 9am?

Taking the train up might be a better option, especially if Saturday is going to be a challenging day as well.

I'm so jealous.

I can't ride AT ALL with my knee like it is. Even getting out in the rain would be more fun than sitting around wishing I could be out riding.
