When do the roll charts go out?

Will contact them tomorrow to see if they have a take out window for drinks, sidedishes , and condiments.

If they don't, can walk over to Barbara's fishtrap right close by to get all the extra suds and goodies.

Make sure to bring your handiwipes!!

Just confirmed with Princeton Seafood Company - they do have a take out window for drinks, condiments, and side dishes - there are outdoor pinic benches too.

Total route is about 90 miles and you will also need gas to get up to Alices from whereever you are coming from so plan accordingly. Do not think there are any gas stops along the way.

Weather looks to be sunny and clear.
Tides will be about 2 feet.
Wind will be about 5mph (4kt) from ENE (070 degreess)
Dew point will 45F
Relative humidity will be 76%
Pressure will be 30.14 in Hg
Pressure tendency will be 0.08 inches lower than the 3 hours previous
Visibilty will be 10 miles.

ETA to crab is about 22.5 hours!

Did a quick run up to Alices on the Hayabusa for a late lunch with my Girl today (Crowded up there). It was a bit cool and wet on the pavement under the trees. Be careful on the ride guys. Now I get to change out the tube/tire on the KTM.

They have non seafood steaks and burgers and sandwiches.

The menu is here:

Also there are several food places in the area (Google maps http://g.co/maps/ktn4f ) so you have many options.

Have a great, safe ride...

Been up since 6 getting ready but I've been feeling a cold coming on for 2 days & this morning I just have to face the fact that I'm now sick as a dog.
Sorry to miss this one, I was looking forward to the route & crab. Have a safe ride. Hope to make the next one...

Went for a nice ride on Thursday, finally got to stretch out my riding legs for the first time in a long while:


Up near Calaveras Reservoir...


Still more along Calaveras...


Last two up in Mt Diablo, though I wasn't expecting the ten dollar cost to ride the roads...

Hi All,

Had a great day for Crab run to Half Moon Bay.

Met up with riders:
JustPaul and Jill
BigNastyBRP and Wendy
Bartet990
Luckett
T O Double D
Ian408

We started from Alices after a warm up coffee - it was a bit chilly on top of the hill.


Then we headed out and enjoyed the twisties in the Santa Cruz mountains and ended up taking abreak at Stage Road and La Honda for a group shot and a cactus - hey why not - this is California in winter.





It had little orange bulbs growing out of it.

Then we made our way out on several twisty roads North to Half Moon Bay and Princeton Seafood for SEAFOOD and beer!!!



Crazy Bert was going to eat the crab with shell included!!
Arrgh Billy!!



Bert, Wendy, and Luckett


Bart and a tasty brew


Our table, Bart was out looking for the missing Pacifico!


Jill, Paul and Ian chowin down.

After the feast we went to the ocean shore and cast our gaze on the Mavericks Surfing area. They were having the surfing competitions this weekend but we did not see them. It was awesome weather so we just enjoyed the view.



After that is was a nice easy ride up Tunitas Creek and down King's Mountain Road towards home.
A Grand Day was had by All!

I enjoyed meeting you all and thanks for coming out.
We will do it again.

Mike Z
