Thursday Morning Coffee Ride Celebrates Walt's 86th Birthday with a Potluck!

27 miles, 2-M

Start location: Upper Lot above the Visitor Center, Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge (Marshlands Road, Fremont, 94555)

Walt Thomas is turning 86! Come join the celebration. Some things change and some things remain the same. 

Our start location, route and lunch stop will change again this year, the fun will remain the same. We will meet in the upper parking lot of Don Edwards, above the Visitor's Center. Take Hwy 84 west to the Thornton Ave. exit; go south and turn right on Marshlands Rd.; parking lot is on the left at top of the rise.  Please wear your club jersey. Vanessa and I will be there (with a cooler or two) to collect your yummy contribution to lunch. Grab your helmet decorations, suffer through a few pictures and go enjoy the ride.  Ken has created a nice, 27 mile route mostly along paths and of course the optional Nike Hill.  Optional for everyone except Walt, that is! 

Lunch will be at Coyote Hills Dairy Glen Picnic area if it isn't taken.  Otherwise, we will picnic at the Visitor's Center.  A route sheet will be provided and cake will be served along with lemonade and water. For those unable to join the ride, please feel free to join us at the picnic. Thanks so much to Ken and Vanessa for helping with organizing this event.
