Peter B. has now retired from leading this ride. In honor of his many years of dedicated service we have named the ride after him and Carol Shaw, who created this ride with him many years ago. The immortal words of his ride description will be retained here, mostly intact. So here we go: Retired, home executive, between jobs, playing hooky? We'd love to have you join us each Tuesday during the year, rain or shine, at the Starbucks parking lot in the Westmoor Shopping Center in Sunnyvale, corner of Fremont and Mary. The route is a variation of the Portola loop. There are hilly C and D routes as well as a flat route. All rides meet at 9:45 for staggered starts between 10:00 and 10:15 am. The hilly route varies through the month. See the online Events Calendar for links to routes in Excel and PDF formats. There is no lunch stop but an extended regroup in Portola Valley provides time for refueling (bring own snacks/lunch). Leader: Vern Tucker, firstname.lastname@example.org, home 408-730-2548, cell 408-893-6008. GPS Files: Tuesday Loop GPS Files

Do not join club rides if you are sick (cough, sore throat, fever, loss of smell). All riders must have a face covering (mask, bandana, buff or other without vent) to be worn at the start of each ride and whenever stopped (eg during regroups). Riders must maintain a safe distance from each other. No drafting, pace lines, spitting or blowing noses into the air (aka snot rockets) during rides. All riders are expected to have read the current County Health Orders and stay in compliance in regards to social distancing, outdoor dining and face coverings:https://www.smchealth.org/sites/main/files/file-attachments/ho_order_c19-11_20200617.pdf?1592431253
