As many of you have noticed, I’ve been successful at losing some weight over the last few months. And I’d like to share one of my secrets that made that possible – hilly routes I was willing to ride at least three times a week. This is one of them. From the Oracle parking lot we’ll take a flat route over to Burlingame, and then make 4 trips up and down the hills, working our way back. No lunch stop during the ride, but we’ll stop by the shopping area at the corner of Ralston and El Camino on the way back where you can pick up a sandwich or other food at either Mr. Pickles deli or Safeway. I’ll also have some cookies or similar snack for the group. There are several picnic tables as well as the grass where we can sit. I’ll be leading the ride at a B pace, but faster riders are welcome – just wait for us at the top of the climbs. Meet Mark Mack (email@example.com or 925-207-4993) at 10 am in Redwood Shores at the parking lot on the west side of Oracle headquarters. We will leave at 10:15. Take 101 to the Ralston/Marine Parkway exit and go east - toward the big green Oracle buildings. Turn left on Oracle Parkway (stoplight before you get to the buildings) and turn left at the first intersection (stop sign) into the parking lot.
