March 2nd - ride with Francis and RBR

I'm planning to crash Francis' ride on March 2nd. Anybody want to join me? We can add miles to their proposed ride if necessary or we can meet by Newark Java around 7:30 and roll by 7:45AM towards the VA staging area.


1st RBR group ride
Meeting place is the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital parking lot. Park closest to Foothill road.
staging area
suggestion to go up Canada to 92 and back. That jumps the distance up to 35.7 (fine by me) and makes the total climbing 1765 feet.
Here is an abbreviated version of the cue sheet (with elevations):
0mi start at Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, 3801 Miranda Ave 85.3ft
0.06mi R Miranda 105ft
0.58mi merge onto Foothill 111.5ft
0.91mi L Page Mill 154.2ft
2.61mi R Arastradero 255.9ft
4.57mi L Alpine 410.1ft
5.66mi R Portola 557.7ft
9.1mi L to stay on Portola 374ft
9.91mi R 84 (Woodside Rd) 462.6ft
11.05mi L Tripp 518.4ft
11.89mi R Kings Mountain 452.8ft
12.3mi L Manuella 433.1ft
12.74mi L Albion 462.6ft
13.25mi R Olive Hill 498.7ft
13.63mi L Canada 429.8ft
20.08mi U turn on Canada at 92 351ft
27.44mi L 84 387.1ft
27.7mi R Whiskey Hill 406.8ft
29.06mi L Sand Hill 292ft
32.17mi R Alpine 157.5ft
32.29mi L Junipero Serra 167.3ft
34.67mi S cross Page Mill, becomes Foothill 160.8ft
35.26mi L on Page Mill, immediate right onto Miranda 105ft
35.54mi L into PA Vets 91.9ft
35.62mi finish 85.3ft

It's that big lot and building you see from Foothill between Page Mill and Arastadero. It has a lot of room. You can park there or ride there. I'll attach a photo to this post.

Time will be: 9 am

Route will be: Foothill North > Page Mill left> Arastradero right> Alpine left > Portola right > Portola left > 84 right > Tripp right > Kings Mountain right > Manuella left > Albion left > Olive Hill right > Canada right > 84 right > Whiskey Hill right > Sand Hill left > right to Alpine and Foothill.
