Breakfast Club Mountain Bike Rides at Thacher

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.
