Palo Alto: Ladies’ Tea and Bike Social at the Elizabeth Gamble Garden

From SVBC:

Ladies, want to meet more women who bike here in Silicon Valley? Join other women who love to pedal, including SVBC Executive Director Corinne Winter, at the beautiful Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. It’s the perfect time for a garden party: the dahlias and zinnas are in bloom, the apples are ripening in the orchard, and the weather is perfect for tea under the old oak tree. We’ll bring the tea, you bring your favorite tea cup and cookies or a tea time snack to share. Hats and gloves encouraged, but not required.

Want company riding up from the south? Join our pre-party ride starting at Caltrain San Antonio station in Mountain View at 10:25 (timed for the #427 & 448 trains). Route is about four miles one way along low traffic, mostly shady neighborhood streets.
