Any TrainerRoad users in the SF Bay Area? Looking to conduct in-person interviews

@daniel I live in Los Altos and am pretty flexible on timing and location.

In case others are interested, we’re going to attempt a group ride with a post-ride feedback chat on the date below. If you want to attend please comment here or send me a message with confirmation.

Group Ride / Saturday, January 26th
Location: Alpine Inn / 3915 Alpine Rd, Portola Valley, CA 94028
Time: Plan to roll by 9am, if everyone is earlier we’ll take off around 8:30am.

Route Options (Decided day of by group)

Huddart Park, Canada & Jefferson
38mi; 2700ft

or

The OLH/WOLH combo is a favorite of many riders:
Old La Honda & West OLH via Woodside
https://www.strava.com/routes/16732469
34mi; 3200ft

If it Rains / Happy Hour / Friday, January 25th
Location: TBD
Time: 4:00-7:00pm
Will wait until the week of and determine if this is the plan due to rain.


The Bay Area is large, so it was tough finding a location that worked for everyone. If you’re in the city or East Bay and can’t make it, shoot me a message and we’ll plan something new. I’m a North Bay resident, so it’ll be easy!

Heard you might need a sweep, I’m known for catching the group behind me on climbs :rofl: Never ridden OLH, it is a bit of a drive from Sacramento and hope to make it if possible. p.s. I met with Josh and gave feedback, hope you don’t mind if I crash the ride


#25

Count me in. See you there.


#26

In SF. Been a user for almost 2 years now. Would be down to meet.


#27

I’ll be in Stockton 1/24-1/29. Unfortunately on call, but if you’re willing to come out to the Valley, be happy to chat. On call means no rides either.


#28

I’m in the area. Down for a group ride if the weather holds. South Bay has some great routes too.

Edit: I see the route was added. Fantastic. Looking forward to it!


#29

Because @bobmac is amazing, we’re going to switch up the route for the ride. Thanks to everyone else for the feedback as well.

Here are two options, we can decide the morning of which we’d like to tackle. Excited to meet all of you. :call_me_hand:

Rolling, good for conversation:

Huddart Park, Canada & Jefferson
38mi; 2700ft

If the group would prefer bigger climbs:

The OLH/WOLH combo is a favorite of many riders:
Old La Honda & West OLH via Woodside

I like the updated route. I’m in as long as it’s not raining too much.

edit: I usually finish my rides at Satura Cakes in Los Altos. Amazing Brioche Donuts (and espresso, obvs)

Also, thought I’d plug this project that opens tomorrow. A few miles away from Canada, but still cool:
