Saturdays, 7:00am: 30-40 miles at moderate speeds (15-18 mph) and hills.

Rides above meet at the shop with your bike, helmet, and fluids. Periodic re-groups.

Sunday morning "Waffle" Ride - meet at Everett Alvarez Jr Park in Santa Clara to roll at 9:00 AM. Twenty flat miles, mostly on paved bike paths, ending with coffee and breakfast near the shop. Casual pace, perfect social or recovery ride. Helmets required.

Today's Tip

Hydration Systems Do More Than Tote Water - Water bottles and cages are adequate for carrying drinks. But, hydration systems offer many advantages. For example, they're insulated, which keeps beverages cooler (or warmer) longer and there's a drinking tube that makes sipping much more convenient because your hands remain on the handlebars. Also, the capacity of larger hydration packs is more than double that of two large water bottles. And, the hydration pack provides a place to stash your jacket, food, ID, small tools and more -- you can even attach a taillight!
