January 13th CU ride

#1 Post by NinjaMama » Wed Dec 12, 2012 7:57 pm

We're going to ease into the new year... total ride route is approximately 70 miles. We have limited daylight hours and it's COLD outside, so hopefully it doesn't rain, and none of us turn into popsicles!

Ride starts in San Jose, to Santa Cruz for lunch (via Old Santa Cruz Hwy), and returns to San Jose (via Hwy 1 and Hwy 17). This will be a Sadie Hawkins ride; boys allowed by female invite only.

Starbucks Meet at 10:30am, depart at 11am
1600 Saratoga Avenue
San Jose 95129

Lunch:
Erik's DeliCafe
1664 Soquel Drive
Santa Cruz
(there is a parking lot behind the restaurant)

This ride ends in Campbell. Feel free to join us on the return trip, but please note that Curve Unit girls will be departing from the group on Hwy 17 in Campbell at Exit 23 Camden Avenue/San Tomas Expressway.

We'll make a gas stop at 76 (next to Erik's DeliCafe) before we get on the highway to come back to San Jose.

I will post a route map shortly!

UPDATE Jan 2 Here's a link to the map, with turn-by-turn directions to our lunch spot: http://bit.ly/YTVhwo

Will this be an open ride? Cuz I cant really go much longer without riding with the greatest women on earth. :) As I've said b4, Lovin me some Curve Unit!!! I look at the pics and I talk to and see you and I get a sense of how much you all mean to and give to each other, and I'm well aware of what a difference CU makes in the community. Being a CU "Supporter" fills me with gratitude. Anyways...Let's Ride!!!

Awwwww... shucks Steve!!! :oops: That is the nicest thing to say!!! It is a Sadie Hawkins event and one of us has to invite you. Usually two is our limit, but let me confirm cuz I have someone I want to invite and want to be sure I can invite both of you. Ok?

I need an invite too. If I get an invite and Steve doesn't can Steve ride bitch on the back of his Blackbird. We have done this for other reasons and it works for me. The XX is a great two up bike. I am only bringing this up in case someone does a back ground check on Steve. :-o

FYI. I know I said I would be riding for the January ride but it looks like Madonna isn't starting (according to Ash). I'll look into it when I get home but it looks like I may be driving sweep.
I'll let you know.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. My POS rear brake is still giving me grief so I hope to address that (kick the living crap out of it) this week.
