GPC Route: Novice Ride #5: Franklin Canyon & Carquinez Shoreline

Ride through Pleasant Hill and out Franklin Canyon with longer but gentle hills. A fabulous descent into Crockett, followed by great views of Carquinez Strait from a multi-use path on the return. One spot is frequently foggy/cold, so carry an extra layer (jacket). Bring lunch or $ to buy.

MON SEP 2 3/TM/63 Labor Day Holstein 100K

Leader: Stephanie Clarke     (510) 423-1873
Meet at 9:45 am for a 10:00 am start

Come join us on Labor Day for this fun, beautiful, and challenging ride, with lunch at the delicious Wild Flour Bakery in Freestone (yes, they'll be open!).  This ride follows much of the northern loop of the Holstein 100K: https://www.grizz.org/cue_sheets/H100K.txt

Note that we'll be starting at Helen Putnam Park, about a mile from the starting point on this cue sheet. The park usually costs $7 for parking (yes, they take credit cards), but there's a possibility it may be free on Labor Day? There's a possibility it won't be either, so be prepared just in case! Bring snacks and water, and be able to follow a cue sheet if you think you'll be faster or slower than the posted pace. Hope to see you there!

SUN SEP 15 4/TM/60 Primavera 100K - Preceding Member BBQ
Leader: Jessica Jensen     (510) 508-6389
Meet at 9:00 am for a 9:15 am start
Start Location: Fremont BART
Optional pre-registration for members

Join me for this beautiful ride following the Primavera 100K course: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29038410 

We'll start at Fremont BART and then meet up with the official route at Mission High School. We'll stop for food in Sunol at about mile 35, but please bring plenty of water and snacks. We'll finish the ride by heading straight to the end-of-summer BBQ right off of Niles Canyon (it's on the way back to BART!). 

Options: If you need to miss the party, I can direct you straight back to BART, no problem. But you should come and grab a drink at least! :) You can also cut off about 20 miles by heading straight back to Niles after Sunol, but you'll be super early for the party if you plan to attend that. Perhaps another group can lead a later ride doing this shorter option...

Leader: Mary Ann Jawili     (415) 935-3113

The party will be held at Jessica Jensen's family home in Niles at 38498 Canyon Heights Drive, Fremont. It's a flat 2 miles away from Fremont BART. There's plenty of room for bikes, party goers, and ensuing festivities! Plenty of (free) street parking available as well.

Check the ride schedule and GPC-talk for different ride lengths and paces throughout the day, culminating at the party at 3PM. Join a ride, then join the party, or just join one or the other.

Please RSVP here so we can get a headcount for food: http://bit.ly/gpc-sept-2019-bbq
