Howard and Jacquette have something to celebrate. Thirty years ago they met for the first time at the 1990 Western Wheelers’ Christmas party. That year the party was a potluck dinner held at Palo Alto’s Mitchell Park Library. Howard isn’t usually terribly lucky, but that year he won two door prizes, and he also found Jacquette. Until this year, the two of them had not missed even one Christmas party. Note that the number “30” has three primes, namely “2”, “3”, and “5.” “2” is because the two of us are now a pair. “3” is because we never saw each other again for three months after we met. “5” is because we married five years later. Also “5” to the power “2” is twenty-five: the number of years we’ve been married. See how very scientific this all is (Howard is a physicist and knows these things). Since there’s no Christmas party this year (which would have been held today), we need a celebratory substitute. We would like it to include food, but unfortunately with the corona virus on a rampage, we can’t even trust outdoor eating. But come explore San Jose with us. Phone 408 712-4573 or email jhshafer@sbcglobal.net for more information. Fall colors will be at their best. We’ll meet at the Sunnyvale Community Center at 9:30 am for a 9:45 am departure. We’ll explore at least four different bike paths. This is a flat ride. Advanced A riders who want to stretch their horizons and try our relaxed B pace are welcome if they bring happy smiles. Rain cancels. So do any other cataclysmic events. Bring masks for stops. There is no lunch stop so bring snacks. 

NOTE: To manage group sizes, club rides are currently open to Western Wheelers members only.  Learn about becoming a member 

Do not join club rides if you are sick (cough, sore throat, fever, loss of smell).  Riders must maintain a safe distance (minimum six feet) from each other.  No drafting, pace lines, spitting or blowing noses into the air during rides.  All riders must have a face covering (eg. mask, bandana, neck gaiter/buff or other without vents) to be worn at the start of each ride and whenever you are not able to maintain six feet of distance from anyone outside your household (eg. during regroups).

There is risk in all gatherings, since people without symptoms can transmit COVID-19.  Participation in club rides is voluntary.  Members assume the full and complete risk that is associated with exposure to and infection by COVID-19 during such participation.  Please note that in the event Western Wheelers is asked by the department of public health for a list of riders participating in any club ride for purposes of Covid-19 exposure tracing, Western Wheelers will comply with such requests.
