millbway wednesday - 4/2 - civilized - 7:11/7:37 train

Ride report:

Met at 24/m BART as per the plan. 4 bikers: Scott, Pedro (first
time?), Brian (first time!), and myself. Rolled out from Millbrae
around 7:45 and set a fastish/comfortable pace. Blew through the
rest-stop before FCF and kept on going. (In fact, we never stopped
during the entire ride except for lights, and not even then
sometimes.) Othman was somewhere ahead of us but we never caught up to
him. Later on we found out that he had waited for a bit bit the chill
had kept him moving on. The sun never really came out, but the weather
held despite forcasted rain and we rolled into Google right around
9:30 after a push down the last stretch. Brian and I saw Scott and
Pedro riding up for breakfast at No Name. We chose to dine at Moma and
made it in time for breakfast (except for pancakes.) Time = 1:53, Avg
speed = 15.6mph. Not bad for a few first-timers (and a
recently-lazy-bones like myself)! Thanks for the nice ride guys.
