BAY TRAIL from Redwood City Caltrain to the Mission in San Francisco for dinner

This ride is 39 miles it continues the loop around the bay started by the Ardenwood butterfly ride. This is a tour or exploratory ride and as such does not take a direct route to the destination. Since I am not familiar with the route expect surprises such as closed or non-existent paths. I expect some searching and redirection from the planned route and it could be slow. I expect to need the full 5 1/2  hours to cover the 39 miles so we will start at 12:00 sharp from Redwood City. If you miss the start or fall behind at any point it should be easy to catch up by short cutting the route and the pace will be moderate.

The ride will stop in South San Francisco (mile 22) to get snacks and regroup around 2:30-2:45.

We will meet at 5:30 or 6 in the Mission for dinner. Suggestions are welcome for the dining location so we can declare it before the ride. This ride is urban and if you get tired it is easy to catch a train or bus home but I expect that most people will be able to ride and enjoy the 39 miles because it is very flat.

See the following URL for the route.

If you are frisky and are ahead of the group, I suggest a detour over to Holly Park, Bernal Hill Blvd and Precita Park for a little climbing and possibly a view of the sunset if the timing is right (5:26pm)

I will schedule the sequel, Fremont BART to the Mission SF ride soon, that will be a faster ride incorporating Sawyer camp trail and Skyline Blvd with climbing, ocean views and a challenging merge on Skyline.

    Hey guys, that was some trip! We started with many and ended with a few or at least didn't meet up with the other group. Anyhow, here is the revised route we took for at least the 2nd group from what my mind and arse remembers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
