FYI, since it is raining. "Trips for Kids" on 4th street in SanRafael, is having HALF off sale today at 10:00. I definitely saw a few things yesterday, that the Sacramento Vintage Camelian Wheelmen would be interested in.

If you leave now, you can be there by ten.

For you folks that are not on Facebook:

Planning a vintage bike ride to the top of Mount Hamilton in San Jose, CA. The ride will be on Saturday, the 27th of April and will start at 10am at the corner of Alum Rock Ave. and Mt. Hamilton Rd. There's parking right on the corner. It's roughly a 36 mile ride up and back, with the worst grades around 6% with just under 5000 ft of climbing. There's a park halfway through the ride for water and bathrooms (Grant Park) and vending machines at the top in the Observatory for drinks and snacks (also a water fountain for refilling bottles). About halfway through the ride, it levels out and there's some downhill into a valley (Grant Park) so you get a climbing break. Ride at your own pace and rain cancels, but hopefully the rain will be long gone by then!
Here's the ride with GPS:

Ride this Saturday!

With the weather getting nicer, we are back to our 9 a.m. start. We are using the traditional upriver route. 25 miles with about 1100 feet of accumulated climbing on bike trail grades. Conversational pace. We usually average about a 15 mph moving speed and we have several regroups. I depart at 8 a.m. from the Guy West Bridge and bike to the ride start if you want to join me for extra miles.

Ride start/end location: Starbucks parking lot in Gold River-2095 Golden Centre Ln, Gold River, CA 95670

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/40441105

Also, Joe and Rich are putting together a Mt. Hamilton adventure on April 27th. The info is in one of the recents posts on this thread.

3rd Saturday in one Week! MIBM

Third Saturday is in one week and we are taking on a new route! Heading up into Folsom and Granite Bay. About 41 miles with 1900 feet of accumulated climbing on gentle rollers and a few short hills. Since this is longer than our usual 27 mile route, we will stop at the flower Farm Cafe at a little over the half way mark for an extended coffee break.

Start location is the parking lot adjacent to the Starbucks in Gold River-2095 Golden Centre Ln, Gold River, CA 95670

Route is here- https://ridewithgps.com/routes/46554583

May 18th Ride Report

Another great ride! We tested out a new route today to try to mix things up. Thanks to the stalwarts and our two out of town guests who joined me on our adventure up to Loomis and Granite Bay. Great company and beautiful bikes. Early Trek, Davidson, Legnano, Peugeot, Serotta, Scapin, my Fuji and Todd’s KOF Toei made for some beautiful eye candy. The below shots are the screen capture of the route and pictures at the Flower Farm Cafe which is a bike friendly business that we used as our mid ride stop.



Camellia City VLCC will be hosting two rides over the weekend of the Classic Rendezvous Western Rally in October 2024. This ride is a very good candidate to be one of the two rides we will host.

Great ride, Albert! Thanks for planning the route! I didn't think of it at the time, but we should've stopped and taken a group photo while we were in "Italy".

They're willing to put up with my pace. You'd be fine.

We do a lot of re-groups. The faster people just use the re-group time to ogle the bikes more. Always fun to se what people bring. Will probably post a chill down trail ride for June so that we get more people out.

Maybe so, not likely I'll get there anytime soon, as much as I'd like to.....

A time honored tradition, thankfully embraced more and more now days.

Many of us not as fast or tough as we think we were.

I was never as fast or as tough as I think I was.
