We'll be starting at the Starbucks in Livermore
Address: 1472 First St. in Livermore (by Orchard Supply)
Meetup: 9:30
KSU: 10:00

Here's the route:
Starting from the Livermore Starbucks, reset your odometer and you’ll find each turn and stop and turn at these mile markers:
Out of the Safeway parking lot to 4th street - 0.2 mi
Left on 4th to South Livermore avenue - 0.8 mi
Right on South Livermore avenue to Mines Rd. - 2.8 mi
Right on Mines Road and turn left to stay on Mines at - 6.2 mi
Roll into the Junction for a potty break and leg stretch at - 29.5 mi
Roll out of the Junction and continue south on Mines to the observatory (be aware of the roadwork about 5 miles away from the top) - 47.2 mi
From the observatory heading down the hill you get to the Joseph D. Grant Park at - 57.6 mi
Ending at Alum Rock Rd. at - 64.9 mi

We're going to try to have a photo-session at the observatory so shine up the ol' bike, comb your hair, and spit-shine your best riding boots!

Be aware; The map shows us ending the ride at Dave and Busters in Milpitas but that's likely to change. D&B's is just too damn busy and I'm afraid we wouldn't be able to even find parking so, I'm still working on where to have lunch at the end of the route. Stay tuned.

Is this an open ride or a girl ride? If it's an open ride and my ride is out of the shop ( warranty work) I'm there.

Well after running by D&B's again last Sunday, it looks like we should be able to crash the place. To reserve a room for about 25 people, it would have cost something like $600 with a signed contract and a buffet. So we're just going to show up and do our best to be seated in the same area. (I'm good with the bar.)
Keep your fingers crossed that the weather cooperates with us.
See you Sunday!
