Arrow Saturday, 3/16 DRIVE, Castro Valley to Sunol to Livermore

Saturday March 16 @ 7:00AM

Initial Meeting Point:
Peet's Coffee & Tea
20439 Redwood Road
Castro Valley, CA 94546
(it's in the Safeway shopping center, located at intersection of Redwood Rd and Castro Valley Blvd)


Guess this one is blossoming into a fairly well-attended thing (about 2-3 of us been doing this every weekend), so this one gets a new thread.

Official rendezvous time is at 7AM. We usually chit chat for a little, let people drink their coffee. Let's try to roll out and begin the drive at 7:30AM. That means if you're running late, text or post to let us know you're gonna be late. Or meet us at the next spot.

We will probably arrive at Sunol station around 8:00AM-8:15AM. Hang out there for a bit, let people fill up their tanks with the sweet nectar of the combustion gods. Latecomers can meet up with us there. Let's say chill there until 8:45AM. Then roll up to Livermore. Not sure where we should stop there, I'm not too familiar with the rest of the route. So if anyone wants to pick another regroup spot before the drive to Tesla and/or Patterson, chime in. Depending on the time then, I might split off at that point if I have to go to work, or I might still be up for a further drive with you guys.

I'm not the leader! No one's the leader! We're all a bunch of guys/gals who happen to drive the same car and happen to be going to the same place haha.

anyways, rollcall (I'll try to keep it updated):

Assume I can get up early, I will be there for sure. I do have a class in Milpitas at 8:30, So I can only do the first leg then rush to milpitas.

Thanks Pmok, really surprised how much this grew. Just in case people don't know where the Sunol gas station is:

Sunol Super Gasoline
3004 Andrade Rd
Sunol, CA 94586

Here's my suggestion for the rest of the route. From Sunol, we could hop back onto 84 (Vallecitos Rd.) into Livermore. If you guys want a stop, we can at Robertson Softball park (corner of Concannon & S. Livermore). Those who are done can just take S. Livermore back to the freeway, those who have time can continue on to Tesla Rd. (which turns into Coral Hollow) towards Tracy. Folks who want to loop back can take 580 north and hop off Patterson pass, which will spit you back out into Livermore.

This sounds fun. What type of roads will we be driving on? I've never been to the places mentioned above...

I've never been to Palomares, but from what I can tell from Pmok's video, looks like some nice moderate twisties on a 2-lane road. Tesla and Patterson pass are more long flowing roads, still 2-lane, but really nice views of the Altamont hills Finch and I might take either one back since we're heading back to the valley.

Yeah I've never done Tesla or Patterson Pass, so hopefully I will have time to stick with you guys till then... been wanting to see them. Let's talk tomorrow about where there might be nice spots to pull off and take a group photo if we can.
