    Go Paul!!

    Thanks all who posted the great pics of Tandem
    and the awesome group photos.

    So many great pics like Carol's just matches that bike of hers!

    Rich on the Rotator is not to be out done. He is one
    to watch.. He is right there with the P38's and Easy Racer's. Nazca, Bacchetta, Rans, Easy Racer, Lighting, Rotator and one trike I can't remember. Bicycle Candy
    wrapped up in Recumbents!

    Now I have to come up with something really wild and unexpected?

    So Fun!!

      While driving the hills of SF yesterday, we caught a glimpse of what looked like an electric assist unicycle going upstream without pedaling, would certainly seem bus and train friendly.

    I plan on joining the Fremont group.

    April 5, 2014

  • Leslie T.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! I'll ride my Lightning, and Paula will ride her Eisentraut bike. We were out there today, but decided with the rollers we would slow everyone down less if we were on 2-wheelers.

    Can't wait to see everyone... should be a lovely day.

    Sue will be riding her hybrid bike

    Can we agree to meet in the bigger parking lot (a LEFT turn from Marshlands) ????: https://www.google.com/maps/place/37%C2%B031'55.4%22N+122%C2%B004'22.1%22W/@37.532064,-122.072801,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0

      Dave and I are carpooling. We plan on meeting you at 8:30 for some extra miles. See ya there!

    I'll probably have to skip the Peninsula ride because I have too many things to do in preparation for home remodeling. Too bad--that route is one of my favorites. If things work out (I doubt it), I'll be there but don't wait for me.

    Hi guys.i've been a member for awhile now but havent got a chance to ride with you guys coz of my work schedule.I think im free on this date as long as my wife is not working.Are any of you guys riding a trike? Coz I ride a trike and a dont wanna be left behind if you all rides a 2 wheel bent:)

    March 31, 2014

    • Russell

      Daryl, there'll definitely be a few trikes--perhaps not as many as a "BARC Monthly Ride", but there will be some. Rick and John (both currently have RSVP'd yes) ride a trike and I'm guessing Paula and Leslie (also both attending)will be riding trikes. I think the 2-wheeled riders will tend to push the pace more on the way to Cañada and on the way back but will stay close to the group for the 15 miles of Canada that is the "main event" for this ride.

      April 1, 2014

    • daryl

      Thanks guys for your info's but my wife just told me that she has to work that day and I have to watch our kids:( I hope to meet and ride with u guys soon.You guys have a good ride:)

  • Zach

    I changed my RSVP to no because a friend invited me to do a local ride Sunday which won't require driving to. Also I'm already driving to the Sonoma ride the day before and driving twice in one weekend is too much. I only drove 3 times in the month of March and try to limit myself to 2-3 drives per month.

    April 1, 2014

  • Paul H.

    I'll be riding over the Dumbarton bridge from Fremont if anybody wants to meet for some extra miles before and after. It is 15 miles each way from the Don Edwards Wildlife refuge parking lot to Roberts Market. I figure on being there at 8:30 if anybody wants to join me.

    March 19, 2014

    • Paul H.

      I'll be on the new to me Nazca Fuego bike. I pick it up tomorrow.

      March 20, 2014

    • Rich C

      It'll be my first group ride on my Rotator; Yesterday's ride inspired me to put orange tape on the fairing for visibility, and my test ride in the rain today went well.

      March 31, 2014

  • Leslie T.

    Date change to April 6, due to Sacramento TARTAR ride on April 12-13.
    Thanks for letting us know, Russell & Zach.

    March 13, 2014

  • Russell

    Leslie, I just realized that TARTAR may be on this day. TARTAR is a 2-day gathering of recumbents (mostly trikes) that rides the American River Trail. If TARTAR falls on this day I won't be able to make it to this ride (if it happens--haven't seen any confirmation info on bentrideronline.com yet)... RSVP'd yes for now...

    March 10, 2014

    • Leslie T.

      Keep us posted on TARTAR. Sounds like we could reschedule this ride in favor of it.

      March 10, 2014

    • Russell

      Leslie, I read today that April 12-13 will definitely be the dates for TARTAR. Once the 2014 TARTAR information is posted, I'll create an event here in Meetup to inform the membership. What do you think about doing this Cañada ride Sunday April 6?

      March 11, 2014

  • Zach

    I'll go if I can work out a carpool.

    March 10, 2014

    • Russell

      Zach, we can work something out if necessary. Maybe ride up Old La Honda to Skyline afterward for some extra miles?

      March 10, 2014

    • Zach

      Russell, that works for me if it doesn't conflict with TARTAR. I'll RSVP yes for now.
