Ride Recap – HCC B2B Ride 08/13/2016



What’s up HCC!

It was a nice relaxing ride this past Saturday.  The morning started out overcast and cool as 7 riders trickled in the parking lot of Refugio Valley Park.  We had one new rider joining us, John, welcome to HCC!  John heard about our club through a group ride with The Pedler.  He was looking to ride with a faster group, so one of the people he was riding with recommended HCC!  Welcome to our club John!!  We hope you enjoyed the ride and look forward to riding with you on our scheduled rides ahead.

The group rolled out of the park at about 8:10am headed for Vallejo.  The group carried a nice moderate pace and stayed intact for the most part being a smaller group.  Ken, John, and Chris  were out in the front end and myself, Bochie, Mike, and Steve trailing behind.

We took a quick bathroom break at Benicia State Park before proceeding with the route.  We saw one of our own, Joel also from FilAm Tri  on his way out for his solo ride.  Good seeing you on the road Joel!

We crossed Benicia Bridge and proceeded to Martinez to take  our usual coffee stop, States Coffee.  Most of us enjoyed a nice cup of joe and refueled on some nutrition while catching up on some conversation.

The group proceeded on the Carquinez Scenic Strait.  By this time the sun was out and it was absolutely beautiful riding.  We just took a nice relaxed pace up and down the rolling hills as we made our way back to Hercules.

I’m happy to report that everyone made it back safely!  Thanks again to everyone that came out to ride!  Next week, we have the Dynamite ride A/B group.  We hope y’all can make  it!  Don’t miss out!
