#drunkenneuring from Novato to Cloverdale (and back)

Mixed Terrain Adventures: Sweeney Ridge to Purisima Creek

Pudu, TBO, Ulrika and myself headed out today for a 67-mile pre-4th of July adventure that spanned Sweeney Ridge, McNee Ranch State Park (aka “Planet of the Apes”), Pillar Point, Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail, Wave Crest Open Space and Purisima Creek. I think it’s my favorite mixed terrain route that I’ve ridden to date! Read More

Swift Industries Summer Solstice Campout

Seattle-based bag company Swift Industries organized a worldwide “Summer Solstice Campout” this weekend, aka #swiftcampout, that inspired folks to get together for some fun outdoors adventures on the longest day of the year. Jenny, Sean and Manny (employees and fans of Rivendell Bicycle Works) secured a scenic spot at Lake Chabot for 50 friends. Emily led a mellow “not-Manny” ride, while Manny plotted a route that followed his weekly “Taco Tuesday” trails. TBO and I couldn’t stick around as our Iko’s under the weather at the moment — but we had fun on our 30-mile mixed terrain jaunt in the East Bay Hills and hanging out with folks for a few hours afterwards!
