Bike riding on Aug. 19

Sunday, Aug. 19 Bike Ride: Come join the Mitzvah Milers Cycling Club on a 25-28 mile ride with some hills in the first half and a manageable pace throughout.

You'll start on the Stanford campus, ride up Sand Hill Road, then down Alpine Road, then right on Arastradero to enter the neighborhoods of Los Altos Hills.

Next, you'll take those quiet neighborhood streets all the way to Mountain View, then return to Stanford on the Foothill Expressway, stopping off at Peet's in Los Altos near the end. Gather at 8:15 am for an 8:30 am departure on "The Oval" at Stanford.

Directions: From US-101, take the University Avenue exit at Palo Alto. Take University all the way through downtown Palo Alto, straight on through the underpass under El Camino Real, and through the main gates and onto the Stanford campus, where University Avenue changes names to Palm Drive. Take Palm Drive straight to the end, enjoying the view of Memorial Chapel in the distance. At the end of Palm Drive there's a loop ("The Oval") with parking. Don't use a meter; use an "A" parking space, which is free and open to the public on Sundays.

It should be a beautiful day for a ride, and everyone is welcome.
