That sounds like a very fun commute for me. I love riding in the rain. Nothing like watching the rain drops pass through my headlight at speeds. The best part is when I get to work and see the amazed/confused look on people's faces. Its only rain people. The worst that can happen is you get wet.

As a mailman, I feel it should only rain at night, and clear up during the day.

So I'm trying to remember an old route that I used to do with Fremont Freewheelers. It started at the Fremont Bart station, and the destination was Berkeley. I know we went climbing Palomares, then through Castro Valley, Redwood, Pinehurst, Skyline, then Grizzly Peak. I think that's the route, at least, but I cannot remember which route we took from Grizzly Peak to the Berkeley Bart station. Is there any old time Fremont Freewheelers who remembered this route? It was a cool route ... we returned by riding Bart back to Fremont.

Anyone, anyone?

Taxi777 is doing a Mt. Tam ride at end of October. But if you want to lead another one, go for it.

I posted this on our Yahoo Group. We'll see if anyone responds. I've never done that ride and have only been a member since 2002.

Awright, I will lead a ride. Just don't know when though. I always seem to bend to peer pressure.

It's been such a long time since I did that ride, but I believe Karen White led it ... not sure if she is still with FFBC.

She just stepped down after two years as our President. Since you supplied a name, I'll e-mail her to see if she remembers.

From Grizzly Peak, go left on Euclid. Euclid takes a few turns, but stay on it until a right on Hearst. Then left on Shattuck to get to the BART station.

Thanks ... I think I'll do that ride next week.
