Guadalupe Creek Trail
Inspired by a friend's nickname for me, we will start from Whole Foods Market (near Diridon Transit station) at 10 PDT, and journey for spectacular sights. This ride is for those who do not wish to travel far or fast. Will this be your recovery ride or main event? As usual, if you bring your "sorrisi" (smiles) and "racconti" (stories), we will stop for "spuntini" (snacks). I can adjust my speed to accommodate slower riders. Please bring your liquids and tools for any unfortunate events, and check the e-list for any last minute updates.
