    Thanks all, great ride, beautiful scenery, sorry for charging ahead after the lunch break, but we had an appointment in the City. See you next time!

    I plan to go - and ride at 12.5 MPH, so slower, steady riders, why not join me on the somewhat shorter route (42 lovely miles). It is a beautiful ride. Carpool from SF would be great as well - can take 2 or three other riders. Drew
