Menlo Bike Club is a community of cyclists that are passionate about riding, learning and improving their cycling skills, and participating in group cycling events.

Our weekly rides take us around the San Francisco Bay Area - Peninsula and often we take trips to the best rides in the North, South, and East Bay. The indoor cycling sessions maintain fitness when we are limited on time and daylight.  

Our annual event plan is both a challenge and a good excuse to experience new rides and ride locations, locally and throughout California.  And we really enjoy our local Cyclocross. 

 

Looking Back at July

July was a very full month for the club. The big holiday weekend was a time for us to visit Big Basin.  We then came back together as a club to support the Tour de Menlo training ride with Fast Freddie and Kelly Crowley.  And if that was not enough, we made some new friends and had a GREAT lunch at Terun in Palo Alto.  Think of this as a dress rehearsal for our  2017 Italy trip.  The month ended with a fun ride to Pescadero and then a "beauty & beast" ride at the Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge. It is amazing to be reminded of how much beauty there is in our backyard.  But we also paid a price with some epic hard climbing.  I may take us back to Santa Cruz next year to do the 75 miler.  

Looking Ahead to August

This Month's Getaway- Mt. Tam

If you look north on a clear day, you will see Mt. Tamalpias, often referred to as Mt. Tam.  This is a beautiful ride through the North Bay that starts with an iconic ride across the Golden Gate bride.  Once we descend into Marin, then it will be a long stroll through all the little towns at the base of the mountain.  Lunch will be in Sausalito before we call it a day. 

Upcoming Clinics

It has been a while since we did our clinics.  With our club growing and adding new riders, it is always good to have the knowledge and skills to ride safely and confidently.  August 13 will be our bike maintenance clinic.   More details to come on this clinic and future clinics.
