Where: San Jose City Hall (Santa Clara St & 4th St)
When: Sunday, July 27 at 9:00 am
San Jose - San Mateo - San Jose - Beat the Heat (a small, one-stop bike party ride in SJ that ends at City Hall) The route linked to above is 85 miles - Beat the Heat adds 15 miles more to make it 100.
We can almost say "No Rider Left Behind" for this and we will try very hard not to drop anybody. But it's 100 miles - we have to move at a reasonable pace - at the very minimum 12 mph while cruising and hopefully a little faster - we have all day to do this but expect to take many stops.
This bike party style ride will cover the easiest 100 Miles you'll ever spend bicycling in a single day. We'll take advantage of:
- flat roads
- all pavement
- lots of rest stops ("picnic stops")
- plenty of places to get water & food
- scenic views of the San Francisco Bay
- an evening bike party ride (Beat the Heat)
- pie (still not classified as doping by the UCI)
100 miles could not possibly get any easier than this!
Yes it is forecast to be hot (high of 80 - 85 deg F) but during most of the worst afternoon heat we'll be along the cooler Bay Trail...
