Phew, it was a jam-packed weekend of fun! First, a big posse of us (Frankie, Jason, Kat, Paul, TBO, Wilson and myself) rode from Lafayette up Diablo; then TBO & I headed to Del Valle for an awesome camping trip organized by fellow rando Brad; then Ann, Denise and Jason met me on Sunday morning at the intersection of Mines and Del Valle for an out-and-back to The Junction for a 58-mile ride. Good times!
Carquinez Regional Park is a beautiful area to hike near the small town of Crockett — especially when the hillsides are lush and green — and it offers lovely panoramic views of the Carquinez Strait. A perfect place to take the shibas!
‘Twas a spectacular day to ride the trails in Marin; with several days’ rain making the dirt nice and tacky, it was a perfect opportunity to ride to The Pelican Inn for lunch. Bridget, Daniel, Jason, John, Neil, TBO and myself met up at Mojo (where we saw Arena!), then took Bobcat to Marincello to Coastal. We bumped into our friend Justin (and dfL Todd) at the pub, and he tagged along for the ride back via Dias Ridge and Miwok (although a few of us skipped that part and dropped down to Mill Valley on the 1.) Good times!
Had a fantastic time riding with DHK, Mike, Sarah and TBO on the Chris King Gourmet (Metric) Century that rolled through Geyserville, Healdsburg and other scenic areas in Sonoma wine country. Saw lots of local framebuilders and friends, too! The food was incredible and will definitely look to doing this again next year.
After volunteering all day at the Quackcyclists’ annual Knoxville Double Century ride, Ann invited Pudu, TBO and myself to join her Sunday King Ridge ride.Continue Reading
