Post-lunch Bike Ride
How about a short afternoon ride? Leaving later may allow for a warmer start or less rain! The ride is short so stopping at a cafe (suggested stops at Tamale Boy or Bassotto Gelateria at 18th and Dekum) is offered but optional, or consider bringing a hot drink in a thermos and take a break as you please. I'll provide a map or you can download it, but essentially this Wilshire Pk ride is east on Prescott to the 205 bike path, south for a climb to the Gateway Max to get our hearts pounding and our lungs open (or skip for a 16-mile ride and less climbing), turn around for a nice descent and a short climb back to Maywood Park and on to the Marine Drive bike path, head west to 33rd ave, take 33rd south, then west on Dekum to the intersection with Durham, then Durham south, east on Holman, south on 32nd, and back to Wilshire. This is a non-group ride so ride at your own pace, but my pace will be mostly moderate (15-16 mph). Please note: The planned route is the same as in November, but if there are strong west winds along the river, I'll provide a different route that avoids the headwind along Marine Drive bike path. We ride - rain or shine!
