Hi Jeff -
 
Let me see if I can make it. Would love to carpool - is there I number I can reach you at? I'll call you by Sat early eve if things look good. You can reach me at[masked]-bike (go figure). I live near Marina Bay, technically in Richmond (close to 580 and the bridge)
 
Thanks,
Susan

Thanks everybody for you input! The level of interest this week is awesome. Barring any mass objections, I?m going to call it for Camp Tamarancho in Marin on Sunday morning at 10:00am. It?s a great place to ride, all wooded singletrack and very very very bike friendly.

Larry, I would be ok with doing Mt. Tam, but that would be a much longer ride and I don?t really have the hours to spend and quite frankly, I doubt I?m in good enough shape to enjoy it at this point. Soon though...

Susan, I hope you can juggle what needs to be juggled and make it over...I?ll be coming up from Alameda with a friend so if you want to carpool with us, we could do that.

Don?t forget it?s the first day after the time change, so 10:00 is going to feel like 9:00! I?ll post details of where to meet etc. on the main meetup page later this evening. If anybody feels left out with this, and would like to post a separate ride that?s more to their liking, I?ll be glad to put it on the site too.

Happy trails!

Jeff

Tamarancho sounds great to me on Sunday (but I'm open).  Is there a time set yet?

I wanna go!!
I'd prefer sunday as well especially if I can bail out to go home shopping at 2pm. I'd prefer some east bay action.

Keep up the chatter.

Not too technical we start at downtown mill valley 10 mile slow climb about 30 degree climb fire roads really good workout. Rest along the way and have little powerbar picnic and take some pics on the top.  I can carpool anyone from east bay coming from napa.  Let me know. Good for beginners .  For 40 mile grand tour we can start at marina green and go throught the headlands and down to mill valley and up to mt tam intermediate/advance riders.  Let me know.

OK Here is the breakdown of ride ideas:

Karen ? Saturday, likes south bay trails
Lisa ? Maybe for Sunday (less likely but possible Saturday?)
Susan ? Saturday
Larry ? Sunday, Likes Mt. Tam
Roberto ? Open
Chris ? Sunday or Saturday P.M.
Me (Jeff) - Sunday is better for me

So...it is looking like a slight majority are more available for a Sunday ride. Karen and Susan, any chance you could make it on Sunday instead? If not, do you want me to facilitate a second meetup for Saturday and you can see if anybody else wants to join you guys?

Larry, what route do you take up Mt. Tam? It's a big climb for a group of riders with mixed abilities, and it might take more hours than I have that day.

My suggestions would be Tamarancho in Marin (nice technical singletrack with lots of switchbacks, $5 riding permit required), Lake Chabot, or Redwood (both in the East Bay).

Thoughts?

Jeff

OK here comes the weekend again...who's up for some dirt riding? Let me know if you have location or time preferences and we can get something going...

Also, roadies, let me know if you guys want to plan something. I don't road ride much, but I can help facilitate a meetup.
