    Excellent route. Just challenging enough, and to build on.

    Daniel, we'll meet u at the rocky shores in the middleton of town by the wooden bench. Its at the corner where Starbucks is.

      Jeffrey, I really prefer not to have 1/2 dozen ppl text or call me to meet at various rendezvous points. The event is set up that everyone is suppose to meet at the starting point. If anyone is running late & they attempt to meet us else where, unfortunately I cannot always accommodate late-comers cuz I won't be able to check comments while on the road & also make the group wait. The Warming Hut was only an alternate meetup point someone requested it in advance & we were able to accommodate them only as a courtesy. Regarding bicycle rules on the bridge, since everyone was suppose to meet up in 2 locations before the bridge, forewarning ppl ahead of time wouldn't be logical.

      July 7, 2014

    • Cela

      Also, the msg to Daniel about mtg near Starbucks was only because he made a wrong turn & lost us but he already knew where we were going to meet & he found us. I'm glad you had a good ride. For future events, make sure to check comments regarding the alternate meetup points as mentioned to Charles, Ryo & Ariana below so you won't miss us & let us know ahead of time you will be meeting there as well so we know to look for you & keep in contact.

    Unfortunately, someone had a flat at the Warming Hut & we didn't get into Sausalilto until apprx. 2:45 pm. Nine of us stayed behind & waited. Hope to see you all next time!

  • Jeffrey T.

    Considering bumper-to-bumper traffic in/around SF, on GG Bridge, and in/around Sausalito, biking is the ONLY way to go.

    July 6, 2014

  • Matt K.

    5 of us starting to head back or already have, thanks!

    July 6, 2014

  • Matt K.

    Had to take bike in for some last minute maintenance, will shoot to meet at Warming Hut at noon, or worst case, Sausalito. (650)[masked] if needed.

    July 6, 2014

    • Matt K.

    Sorry I have to drop out after all. Work's piling up and I can't afford to take a whole afternoon off tomorrow. Will look for this ride again though - soon, I hope!

    Ariana, re: your msg. Answers you might of missed below to Charles. ==> Hey Charles, we'll be leaving the cafe at 12:30 pm & it takes 20 min to get there. There are a couple of hills to regroup at so I would say give at least 30 minutes. I will post an update when we are near Crissy Field :)

    July 5, 2014

  • Ryo S.

    So I am Charle's +1. Letting you know so you don't get the head count wrong.

    July 5, 2014

      Looking forward to this ride, haven't done it on a while!

      Yes during lunch

      And if you have cables. That's always a plus.

    Hi. I will be arriving from the East Bay by Bart to Embarcadaro, about 11:30. Anybody else wants to meet there and from there ride together to the meeting point? If so, feel free to get in touch with at (510) 375-7825. Thanks

    July 5, 2014

  • Ryo S.

    Also we will meet you folks at the warming hut!

    Hey Cela: That's a very useful option for me. I'll meet you at the Warming Hut on Crissy Field. I assume around 12:45? Charles

    Ariana, Cafe Sapore is an easy 10 min ride from Embarcadero BART on The Embarcadero which has a bike lane. For those who BART & need to rent a bike. You can rent one by the Ferry Building on The Embarcadero. Or, it's a 10 min bus ride to Cafe Sapore on the #30 Stockton from Montgomery St. where 3 bike rental places are a block away. If anyone wants to drive in and meet us at Crissy Field, just leave a comment & we will meet you by the Warming Hut Cafe before we head onto the bridge.

    Cela,are you the organizer? may i respectfully suggest meeting either 1) near the Embarcadero Bart station (because many of us will be coming by Bart) or 2) at Crissy Field b/c there is a lot of parking (for those who drive). Although Caffe Sapore may be groovy it doesn't have either the benefit of being near Bart or having easy parking. The benefit if Embarcadero too is that it's near the where the Ferry docks.

    CORRECTION: Meetup location is Cafe Sapore

    July 1, 2014

  • Jeffrey T.

    What is rendezvous point - Cafe Sapore @ 790 Lombard, or 901 Columbus Cafe @ 901 Columbus ???

    July 1, 2014

  • Jeffrey T.

    I signed up tentatively, but am concerned about logistics. Live by SFO and will be using public transit to get to rendezvous point.
