    Peter, thanks again for organizing the ride this last weekend. I definitely enjoyed the ride, the fellow cyclists, and the route...maybe not the heat as much though (it turned out to be a scorcher by my standards). :-)

    • Peter

      Yes, it was one of those hot days. Glad you came. See you on future rides.

    Unfortunately we did not get to regroup after lunch. We has two separate incidents with injuries. While we can avoid incidents and issues when out riding we were fortunate to be riding with someone. Hope everyone made it back riding with someone who knows the way.

      Several typos. We had two... While we can't...

  • Mae N.

    Hello, I just moved to the Bay Area and this will be my first time riding with the group too. Very much look forward to the ride! Question: does anyone happen to be coming from Berkeley? Unfortunately with public transportation I will barely make the 7am start since the first BART is at 6am and it's still a 7 mile ride from Embacadero to the bridge. If someone is coming from Berkeley/ Oakland, would love to get to the start together. Thanks!

    June 27, 2013

    • Mae N.

      Hi Peter, looks like the train arrives at Embacadero around 6:35am, and it will take around 40-45 minutes to get to the bridge from there. So I can get there at 7:15 - 7:20am. Are you leaving at 7:15am sharp?

      June 28, 2013

    • Peter

      Please email me via meetup with you phone number.

      June 28, 2013

  • Mauro Q.

    Is there street parking without limits?

    June 28, 2013

    • Peter

      You can park very close to the bridge at Storey Ave & Lincoln Blvd. You can look it up on map. Then just ride down to the GGB pavilion.

      June 28, 2013

  • Mauro Q.

    Hi Peter , where exactly are we meeting , right next to the under crossing on the other side of the bridge?

    June 28, 2013

    • Peter

      Meet by the first concrete bench in the pavilion. I will have blue bike with yellow jersey.

    I'd love to join - you think it's reasonable to assume a 2-3pm return to SF?

    June 26, 2013

    • theresa t.

      Hi Peter,I would have to cancel this ride.I'm a beginner and slow, and work sched conflict. I'm looking forward for the next one.

      June 26, 2013

    • Peter

      Hi Theresa, sorry you have to work. but as fyi, slow is no problem. my avg is only 10-11 mph.

  • richard a.

    Unfortunately I have to cancel, maybe next week?

    June 26, 2013

    • Peter

      Hope to see you on another ride Richard.

  • Spidey

    Would anyone be interested in doing this ride this Saturday? I used to ride this route from San Rafael and love it but have to be back in the city by 2pm next weekend and don't think we're going to finish in time.

    June 20, 2013

    • Peter

      I can also do this ride this Sat. If anyone else is interested, pls add your name here.

      June 20, 2013

    • Itai Z.

      I'd do it this Sat., but I can't be at the GGB before 10am.

      June 21, 2013

  • Roxanne

    Hi - I'm considering joining you, but would probably meet you at Mikes Bikes in Sausalito - what time would you say that would be - 7:45 - 8:00?

    June 21, 2013

    • Peter

      Hi Roxanne. If you can be there at 7:45am that would be good. We should be by close to that time.

      June 21, 2013

  • richard a.

    Guys, gals, it should never take that long with a 7AM start, unless you plan on long breaks? Muscles get cold, they tighten up, it sucks to get warmed up all over again. 15-20 minute break tops, One stop@ Nicassio store to use rest rooms and buy more food. People, do you know how to do pace-lines?It's faster and a lot more fun! Please chime in.

    June 20, 2013

  • Sheryl

    sorry, I didn't see the date. I'm riding to Calistoga next Sat. :-(

    June 20, 2013

    • Sheryl

      There's a little bit of a climb, but it's a no-drop ride and the organizer - Lincoln - is really good about accommodating everyone. I signed up for it, but maybe you or others would like to join for this Saturday?

      June 20, 2013

    • Peter

      Looks good Sheryl. Another option for this Saturday.

      June 20, 2013

  • Kristin M.

    Hi, I have done this ride before but it has been a while. I need to be back in the city by 3pm so I may drop off if doesnt look like we will be making it back in time.

    June 20, 2013

    • Peter

      Hi Kristin, hopefully we can be back by 3pm. But yes, feel free to drop off or rush back.

      June 20, 2013

  • Kathleen

    I've just moved to the Bay Area & really enjoy riding. I'm admittedly a bit intimidated by the mileage but do love to push myself. Is this ride appropriate for me?

    June 20, 2013

    • Peter

      Hi Kathleen. What is the longest ride you have done? Most likely you can do it. Then you have Sunday to rest.

      June 20, 2013

    • Peter

      BTW, this ride is about 115Km. That's a metric century!

    Hi peter, I may meet you guys at MIkes Bikes in Sausalito. I got about 40 miles in this past weekend but not sure what I can get in between now and then. let me see how I feel. trying to spin.
