For paid members only

Your Host For The Event:

Simon and Nikki Tildesley

Date of the Event:
Saturday September 25, 2021

After our usual meet up in the morning - we will drive as a group on Highway 130 (Mt Hamilton Road) to the Lick Observatory. Please note that this is a very twisting road and can have a number of cyclists on it

Assuming that the Observatory is open - we will stop for a short time and regroup in the car park to take a moment to honor and remember our absent friends and family

If our group is large then there is a pull in on the other side of the mountain that we can use for this

Following that - we will continue along Hwy 130 towards The Junction. This will give us chance to regroup if needed.

From The Junction we will continue along Mines Road towards Livermore heading to our final destination of East Bay MINI for our Annual Meeting. lunch and draw.

Note: Lunch will be provided by East Bay MINI as well as the drawing prizes. THANK YOU EAST BAY!!!!

NOTE: this run is fun but does have some challenging roads. Therefore - we will offer two groups - one that will be a little more spirited and the other which will be for those who want to take a little more time
