Singlaires Weekday BIKE RIDES
Alma Fletcher will lead a bike ride Friday, Sept. 23, at 10 a.m. along the Half Moon Bay Shoreline Bike Trail from Bluff Top Coastal Park (Poplar Street) to the Distillery in Moss Beach and back. We can have a cup of coffee or whatever at the Distillery (maybe see the Blue Lady's ghost there) or at the Princeton Seafood Company in Princeton. This should be an 18 mile ride along trail and little-used road next to the Half Moon Bay Airport. Dress in layers although the coast's weather should be fantastic then. Let me know if you're coming. Hope to see you there.  New directions for meeting place: Do not go to the parking lot at the Bluff Top Coastal Park as Half Moon Bay is now charging to park. Instead, follow these directions. Take Highway 92 west to Highway 1, turn left on Highway 1, then 0.7 miles to Poplar Street. Turn right on Poplar Street and continue to First Street. Turn left on First Street and continue to almost two blocks to almost Grove Street. Park on either left or right hand side of First Street. You will see there is plenty of room to park. If you travel west as far as Railroad Ave. on Poplar Street, you have gone one street too far.

Crystal Springs Lake should be on your right. Hope you can come. Let me know if you are coming.   Alma Fletcher
