lugged steel retro ride 11.15.09

Guy called the ride and his timing was perfect for a fantastic fall day. Weather very nice for riding. Met at Los Altos Chamber of Commerce and rolled out around 10am into the Los Altos hills. This was a really fun climbing ride with a little different route than we normally take. Through Palo Alto, Portola Valley and Woodside we met at Robert's market in Woodside for a few minutes then headed down Cañada towards the College. Everyone regrouped at Cañada College then it was up, up, up into the Emerald Hills section of Redwood City on Jefferson. Guess Guy felt like climbing a little today. ;^) Bob and I caught up with the rest of the group at the Plantation Deli in Menlo Park for lunch and good company. The Bianchis, Colnagos, De Rosas, Tomasinnis, Paramounts,Sachs, Fujis, Mirellas and Cinellis then headed south on Alameda de las Pulgas to Foothill through Menlo and Paly back to Los Altos for a parking lot hardware show of machines and some interesting parts and of course we may have talked about old bikes a little. Thanks for a great ride everyone, thanks for calling the ride, Guy! I had a blast as usual, let's do it again soon.
