Revised 10/6: I have changed the meet up time to 7AM based on some feedback I have received. Hope no one minds the extra hour for sleeping : )
Revised. The route of this ride has changed. We are no longer going to Santa Cruz. We will be heading to Santa Rosa for an out-and-back ride. The ride is still long but it should be more enjoyable. The meetup time is still the same but the meetup location has changed. Hopefully you can still join the ride.
This will be an interesting ride format. It is time-based as opposed to distance-based. This ride starts at 6am (yes six am) from SF and we ride south mainly along CA-1 toward Santa Cruz for 6 hrs, with the goal of reaching it. However, if case we do not reach Santa Cruz, at noon, we will turn around and ride back (stopping for lunch at a suitable place we have passed by). We allow 8 hrs for the return trip and hope to be in SF by 8PM. Will need front/rear lights for this ride.
(Note: I have not done this ride before and welcome all suggestions from those who have been on CA-1 from pacifica to Santa Cruz.)
Mileage: about 150 miles (or less if we don't make it)
Pace: attempt to maintain 12.5 mph avg.
Limits: 10 riders so we have 5 pairs or two groups of 5, perfer not to have anyone riding alone. Ideally we should stay together as one group. Hence, you should be willing to match the pace of the group (somewhat without ruining your enjoyment).
Please consider the miles before accepting.Also, please don't accept unless you are quite sure you can come. Ideally, you have not done this before but it is something you want to try in a group. I am not a hardcore and will certainly struggle.
