This trip was all about fun with friends and eating all the tasty Asian food I’d been deprived of in Colorado. It made me realize how much I miss everyone and the Bay Area; I’ll have to come back more often…
Some of our dirt-lovin’ cycling comrades from the North Bay and the city expressed interest in getting a tour of the fine mixed terrain that’s available in our lovely East Bay hills — so we were happy to oblige!
Going on a mixed terrain “Manny Ride” is always an adventure.
I’ve been wearing a big ol’ pair of lazy pants since PBP, and so all of my weekend rides have been no longer than 65 miles. But since I do love these randonneur team events (they’re my favorite type of brevet!), I was glad to join Team Delta Dawdlers for a mellow jaunt from Alameda to Davis.
