    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 Starbucks in the Westmoor Shopping Center in Sunnyvale, corner of Fremont and Mary, at a later, civilized hour. The route is a variation of the Portola loop with lunch stops at various eating places in the Palo Alto area. There are hilly C and D routes as well as a flat route. All rides meet at 10:45 for a prompt 11:00 am departure.

    The hilly route varies through the month. See the online Events Calendar for links to routes in Excel and PDF formats. Everyone assembles together at regroups and for lunch. Many stop for coffee near the end of the ride. Leader: Vern L. Tucker, vltbike@yahoo.com, home 408-730-2548, cell 408-893-6008. Bring lunch or buy.  GPS Files: Tuesday Loop GPS Files
