We are now in Summer peak training season. No more climbing for a while. We'll focus on speed and distance. I am moving back the start time so that we can escape the mid-day heat after 3 hours of all-out rides.
There will be a mix of Vaxed and non-vaxed riders. For non-vax riders, please stay 6 ft away from others and put on mask when in group chat settings. Vaxed riders can now follow CDC guidelines and be "free".
Ride start: Lucky’s North Parking Lot arrive by 8:00am, roll at 8:15am sharp (Led by Vincent), please call or text me if you are late. 408-480-9933
