CA2Q Monthly Flyer
July 2017

It is hard to believe that the year is half over.  It went by fast and I didn’t ride nearly as much as I had hoped. It has been a busy year for many CA2Q members with both planned activities and unforeseen events. So what have we done this year? 


  • Five chapter meetings
  • Seven rides covering 1425 miles
  • Two monthly dinners
  • Garage sale
  • Two CA2Q planning parties

We have 8 more rides planned for the year plus the Scavenger Hunt and the summer picnic.  We have six months left to pack in the fun for the year!

June Recap

The month started off with a thud as I had to cancel the overnight trip I had planned to Lake Tahoe due to urgent business travel.  But I returned just in time for the garage sale on June 10.  The garage sale was a great success and we brought in $538.

We had our chapter meeting on June 17.  The after chapter ride was to the Santa Cruz mountains and over to CA 1.  Inland temperatures were in the high 90s to low 100s so we picked a great time to ride to the coast. We had lunch in Boulder Creek at Taqueria Los Amigos.  It was amazing to see how many roads were affected by this last winter’s rain.  There were at least 4 places where there were light controlled one lane sections.

July Activities

CA2J is having their rally / BBQ on July 8 at the Antioch Community Center.

Our Chapter Meeting is July 15.  This will be Bob and Jean Tobin’s last chapter meeting before moving to Utah, but they certainly will be back to see us.  Bob and Jean have been GWRRA members since 1998 and have been active participants with CA2Q almost from the beginning.  So be sure to make it to this chapter meeting to wish them well in the new adventures in Utah.  I think a little roasting may be in order. 

The after chapter ride will be to Bodega Bay.  We will have lunch at a neat little restaurant, Ginochio’s Kitchen on the water front of Bodega Bay.  They have outdoor patio seating with a great view.
