Memorial bike ride this Saturday

Everybody will be joining the memorial ride for Kristy Gough and Matt Peterson tomorrow.

Martin Krieg and his gang will leave the BusCycle garage in Palo Alto at 1 P.M. for the six mile ride to Foothill College, where they’ll join the “official” memorial ride to Stevens Canyon.

At the request of ride organizers, the Santa Clara Sheriff’s department will escort the ride down to Stevens Canyon, and Stevens Canyon Road will be closed during the duration of the ride. The county sheriff bike patrol will also join the ride. Alto Velo/Webcor will provide course marshalls to direct traffic at busy intersections.

Free parking will be available at Foothills College in Lot 1 (the lot nearest the football field) from 2 PM to 6 PM.

The media WILL BE PRESENT at the ride. Organizers are asking everybody to ride in an orderly fashion and keep the group as tight at possible.

The ride will take place rain or shine. The temperature will be in the low fifties and rain is likely Saturday afternoon.
