Many of us will have spent Thanksgiving Day happily eating everything in sight. Time for the antidote - burning off some calories with a nice little ride. So let's do the Butterlap - so named because it's so smooth and pretty, it's like butter.

We'll start at Peet's on Market Street, leaving at 9:30 AM. From there, we'll go up Corbett/Portola/Twin Peaks Boulevard, up to the top of the hill. We'll stop at the lookout area on Twin Peaks, and maybe linger a bit if it's a pretty day and maybe take some photos.

From there, we'll go back down the hill to Clarendon. Left on Clarendon, taking the fun descent down to 7th into Golden Gate Park. We'll go through the park and out to the beach. North (right) on Great Highway, working our way over to Seacliff via El Camino del Mar, and then into the Presidio via Lincoln. We'll take Lincoln all the way to the Marina, and then play tourist as we ride through Crissy Field and the Wharf. Down the Embarcadero till we get to Market Street, and all the way back to Peet's on Market Street (Or, we'll take an alternate route back to Peet's if the group feels so moved).

Meet at 9:30 AM with a roll out shortly after that. No lunch or coffee stop planned for this short ride, but if it becomes sociable, so be it.

Cue sheet, map, and GPS track here

And don't forget to wear your helmet!
