Meet Howard Shafer (408 712-4573 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jacquette Ward at the Sunnyvale Community Center in Sunnyvale at 9:45 am for a 10:00 am departure. We’ll follow bike paths wherever possible, and by including a short stretch of dirt, we’ll visit the new Cooley Landing on the East Palo Alto waterfront. We’ll stop for lunch at the Tortilla Factory in Newark, where you can buy cheap but tasty Mexican fare, but for social distancing, et cetera, you might want to bring your own lunch. We’ll follow a rural route past Milpitas and Alviso on the way back to Sunnyvale, completing a circle. The weather is predicted to be excellent. The pace will be a mellow B, and nobody will be left behind, but if you are new or inexperienced, be aware that the ride is 49 miles long. The Dumbarton Bridge will be the biggest hill. Masks are required at stops.
