  • Arnold/Murphy

    Starbucks, Livermore

    Meetup at 8, KSU at 8:30. Arrive with a full tank and bring water and snacks. Here are the routes for morning and afternoon. This is a pretty long ride, so the speed will be a little bit spicy, which makes the ride not newby friendly. We will get back to Livermore around 5 or 6 in the afternoon. I will check for lunch spots in the next week or two. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13677608 https://ridewithgps.com/routes/13677607
