Our route will be south to Saratoga with a break at the Big Basin Cafe or there are other cafe options nearby. The route has a few very short "bumps", it's NOT a flat ride. We will regroup as necessary, no one left behind. START at Bowers park, next to Juan Cabrillo middle school, Cabrillo Ave. and Morrison Ave., 1 block West of San Tomas Expy, Santa Clara. Use the driveway on the right of the Bowers Park sign. Questions: Call or Email * Rain Cancels* Terry Kreiter invalid@example.com invalid email address false DD/MM/YYYY
