RIDE RECAP BY CHRIS B.

Hi HCC,

Ride recap from this morning’s ride. The ride started out with with perfect weather! We had 14 riders today! With two new friends joining the ride Raúl Ruiz and Arnel Dionisio wife Wina welcome to the HCC we look forward to more rides with you both!
We left Starbucks in Hercules and headed for the Carquinez bridge were we kept a very mellow social pace. Roger Morris and I would attack the second climb as we approached the Rodeo refinery with the rest of the group staying together. With a nice short fast descent leaving the refinery.
We would then tackle the third climb to the Carquinez bridge were we would regroup and continue together across the bridge again at a mellow pace. We would then roll through Vallejo into Benicia where we would make a quick pit stop at the Benicia State Park for bathroom break. We then would make our way to the Martinez bridge and cross it into Martinez making our way to the infamous Pig Farm climb and descent. We then regrouped at the bottom of Bear Creek rd. and then made our way to East Bay Coffee Company to end the ride. It was a nice mellow ride with a great group.
Everyone rode strong today! Great Job HCC and I look forward to the next ride! Have a great rest of the Memorial weekend! See you at the next one!
