    The hill was torcher, but my legs weren't in it yesterday. As usual loved the group I was with, without them I wouldnt have made it. I truly enjoy my Saturdays in a whole new way cycling with the Velo Girls. Thank ladies

    Thanks to Jenny I was introduced to "Action Wipes" this week, and they are awesome. I am a big fan and will be ordering some this week. Highly recommend!

    I'd love to join you all. I've done a few centuries last year but haven't been riding more than twenty five miles lately. What's the pace like?

    A bit about this route: After about 7-8 miles, we will be in the country with little facilities for food, etc. So, to be successful on this ride - please pack your pockets with sufficient food: think peanut butter sandwiches, cheese sticks, almonds, minibagels, granola bars, GU/ Frontier Snacks. Make sure you have plenty of water and electrolyte supplements. Once we get to the top of the hill, we'll have an opportunity to refill bottles. Personally, I'll be wearing my camelback and expect to need about 20 ounces/ 60-90 minutes. Please Please Please remember your extra tube and tire changing kit. In fact, if you have room for 2 tubes - carry 2 extra. Last year, I followed a guy who went through 3 tubes on this ride and I changed my friend's tire twice - so don't get caught short.

    We will be riding some of the Cinderella Route - so a good chance to see what it's like out there. Caution: it's really pretty!

    Out of town on business so I will miss this ride. I will make up the miles on Sunday once the jet lag is gone. Have fun ladies.

    Heather Farms Park is off of Ygnacio Valley Road in Walnut Creek. If you are coming from the west on Hwy 24, follow the signs for Yngacio Valley Road. After John Muir Hospital, you'll come to the intersection of N San Carlos (gas stations on opposite corners). You will want to take a LEFT into Heather Farms Park. Please look for me in the middle parking lot on the RIGHT. I will park by a restroom (convenient) and drive a white Prius.

    This ride is one of my favorites and i am very excited to be able to share it with you. We start in Walnut Creek, but quickly get out of town. The first half of the route is in the country and once we start climbing, we will climb for 10 miles. The 10 miles aren't all straight up- you climb a bit and it levels off, then you climb some more and so on. You are rewarded with a beautiful view and lots of cyclist company at the top. The down hill is fabulous but then we'll be in the flats most of the way home. We will ride on some of the Cinderella route and Iron Horse Trail. This is a 6 hr or more ride, so pack plenty of fuel. Route sheet and map will be posted shortly.
