I commute into the city via Caltrain, it takes a very long time to get where I need to go, two hours one way, and I imagine it will take you close to the same amount of time via BART or Caltrain.

yeah, no WD-40. Fortunately proper chain lube is at least pretty affordable :)

chamois cream should be added to the list.

Agreed, I am not that scared, more intimidated. This will be my first century ride, I have crested 70 numerous times solo. I am hoping that the large group of riders will get me through Kings Ridge.
