I have organized a weekly mountain bike ride for members of the Thacher community as a way of helping students and my colleagues to get out on the trails in the morning before classes and work. The "breakfast club" moniker is a nod to a seminal movie from the '80s.
Each week is a little different as far as who joins me, but regardless we always have a good time riding our bikes, getting out on our local trails and seeing the valley in early morning light. The pace is social and I emphasize just getting out there. Our route varies a bit, but is mostly involves some uphill on wide paths and some downhill on good single track. Not a bad way to start the day!
Below is an iPhone image from a recent morning with Jon, Teddy and Karleanne. If you are in the area, I hope you'll consider joining us. We leave at 7 AM, Wednesdays, from the Thacher Pergola.
