The plan is for Mellow LM riders only. Expected to ride together at the pace of the slowest rider. If there is to be a Quick Spinner (QS) option, it will be impromptu. QS may do very challenging hills at a quicker M to MB pace. Route sheets provided on-line, and a few on the ride. Meet at Summit Bikes, Main Street in Los Gatos. Rain or intense heat cancels. Burritos after. Be there ready to roll by six. Sometimes another cyclist will lead the Quick Spinners option.
