Lunch will be served at the scenic Picchetti Open Space and historic winery, where riders will be able to relax in a shaded setting overlooking Stevens Creek Reservoir. Lutticken's, the Menlo Park deli, will cater the hearty lunch of grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches as well as a wide variety of salads.
The ride is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park and the Almanac, the community newspaper and website that serves Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside.
All proceeds from the ride will benefit Rotary tutoring and need-based scholarships as well as nonprofit organizations supported by the Almanac's annual Holiday Fund drive. The beneficiaries include: the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, Second Harvest Food Bank, St. Anthony's Dining Room in Redwood City, Shelter Network, Youth and Family Assistance and several others.
Registration at www.TourdeMenlo.com continues until ride day, Aug. 21, although anyone who wants to receive a ride T-shirt must register online by Aug. 11. Advance registration costs $50 including lunch and the shirt.
The ride is fully supported, with two rest stops and a water stop, and SAG support is offered over the complete route. For more information call Tom at 650-575-2279.
