    We have a clear weather window for the weekend!  It will be mid-40's to low 50's from 10 am - 12:30 pm, so dress/layer for cool temps.

    See you tomorrow, and don't forget to email me your coffee order by noon today if you'd like to pregame.

    • In retrospect, I should provide more than 6 hours notice before organizing a regular “social” ride, so we'll start the inaugural Pre-Game Petalumans ride this Saturday, March 25.  If you'd like to pre-game with a free coffee, please rsvp via email to me by noon, Friday March 24, and provide your coffee order from the menu below.  Pre-gamers should arrive at my house between 9:50 am to 10 am and we'll drink coffee together (restroom and water bottle fill available), then take the quick 4 minute ride to Riverside Cafe and meet rest of the group.  If interested in coffee pre-ride, email me:

      • Name
      • Coffee Order (if you'd like more than one coffee serving, please indicate how many coffees):
        • Espresso
        • Cappuccino
        • Latte
        • Americano
      • Single, Double or Triple Shot
      • Regular Milk or Oat Milk
      • Sugar or none
      • I have an espresso machine that will make any of the above. I will email you my address when you rsvp with your coffee order. 
    • All welcome regardless if you pre-game or not, and depending on who shows up, we can divide into two groups:  A pace (9-10 mph avg) and A|B pace (11-14 mph avg)
    • Rolling hills (1,400 ft elev gain)
    • Regroup as needed, we'll start and take a break together at Penngrove Market  for coffee, snack, restroom, water bottle refill and social break.  
    • 33.7 miles ~2h30m to 3h5m riding time depending if riding with the A|B or A pace group, plus break time at the Penngrove Market.  I will lead the A pace group if we split into two groups, in which case we will need a volunteer for someone to "lead" the A|B group (i.e. have a computer with GPS to stay on the route)  Please e-mail or text me (415-307-4871) to help with the A|B group if you are interested (and I can email you a .fit or .tcx file to upload to your computer).
    • Given daylight savings time and cooler temps, we'll have a later start. Please arrive ready to roll by 10:20 am at River Front Cafe / B St & 2nd. We will leave PROMPTLY at 10:30 am

    Ride With GPS Route Map (see attached Cue Sheet with Route Map)

    Description: Pre-game Petalumans beginner to intermediate A to A|B pace route through western Petaluma to Cotati and a social stop at Penngrove Market, then back to western Petaluma country backroads.
