sf ibob ride -- saturday april 2, 2005

Thanks to Mike and Roland for coming out and making the inaugural SF iBOB Ride a success! It was a super day -- we managed 66 miles, riding through Fairfax, up and over Whites Hill, and lunched at the Woodacre Deli. Although it got a little chilly at the end, it was a great day of riding...




I'm going to declare that this Saturday, April 2, 2005 is the first SF
iBOB "Periodic Day-Tour".  (Periodic -- meaning I hope to do these

I've checked the weather, and it's currently predicted that it'll be
"mostly sunny" on Saturday with a high of 62F (showers are predicted
for Sunday).

My current plan (unless majority rules otherwise) is to meet at 9am in
Golden Gate Park at the corner of John F Kennedy Drive and Conservatory Drive.

We'll roll out by 9:15am, and head up towards the Golden Gate Bridge
by way of Arguello Blvd and through the Presidio.  After crossing the
bridge, we'll regroup in the parking lot on the northern side -- we
can meet up with additional folks here as needed (9:30-9:45).

Then we'll ride through Sausalito, up and over Camino Alto, on to
Fairfax (we can stop there for coffee), over White's Hill, and do the
standard Nicasio Loop route, perhaps stopping for lunch in Olema or
thereabouts (suggestions for lunch stops welcome, or we can brown-bag

We can again stop in Fairfax on the return leg (for coffee and snacks
as needed), and then return home by retracing our steps.  This
distance will be around 70 miles -- the pace will be moderate
(13-15mph).  If majority rules we can shrink the distance somewhat (I
know a good deli just over White's Hill that'd make a nearer lunch
stop and turnaround point).

Please RSVP if you plan to attend, so I know how many route maps to
print out.  Please also note that I stop for all stop signs and red
lights, so if this bugs you, consider yourself warned.  ;)

Thanks and hope to meet some of you!
