Saturday Group Ride

Saturday, October 5, 2019, 8:30 AM until 1:00 PM
Alpine Inn
3915 Alpine Rd
Portola Valley, CA  94028
Group Ride
Registration is not Required
Hey guys -- Jon Gilgoff and I are hosting a Saturday social ride in Portola Valley and Woodside on the Peninsula. We'll start at the Alpine Inn in Portola Valley, at 3915 Alpine Road, Portola Valley, CA, which is about 50 minutes from Oakland. The ride is about 30 miles, with stops at the Woodside Market and the Pulgas Water Temple, a beautiful, historic site, where the water from the Sierras meets the Chrystal Springs reservoir. Here is the route on Ride with GPS: We'll start at 8:30 am. 
 The maximum grade is only 4.1%, so it is not very steep, and there are no stoplights -- just stop signs. Afterwards, at 11:30, the Alpine Inn opens, and we can get various refreshments there. The Alpine Inn first opened in 1852 (that's very, very old for California!), and was just refurbished this year, so you'll find it a great place to talk and relax. Come join us!  My phone number is 510-332-3706 if you need it, and if you want to caravan on the way there, just let me know.
