Why do I keep a log? Read here. This log is
terse, if you want longer descriptions of the rides, read my advice for cycling
in the East Bay.
2013-09-23 Bay Trail Stroll with an
extra 30 kilo in tow.
(15 km, 55 m gain)
2013-09-14 Lucas Valley Populaire: Took
BART over to Embarcadero, and after an espresso and waffle at Blue Bottle at the
Ferry Building with my friend JB, we headed over to Chrissy Field, where JB left
me in the good company of Guy, James, Sara, and Kayvon. It was a great day for a
nice long ride, we were mostly bringing up the rear the whole time, but I got to
take a bunch of pictures. Without a doubt, I'm ready for my first 200k
(112.6 km, 1505 m gain)
2013-09-08 Orinda via Happy Valley alone
today. It was a hot one, so I took my shirt off and got some of the late-summer
(55.4 km, 1254 m gain)
2013-09-08 Bay Trail Stroll we skipped
the Solano variety, and just took a new trailer to the bay trail
(19.8 km, 78 m gain)
2013-09-07 The new bridge and Port of
Oakland Rode across the new section of
the Bay Bridge with my buddy Jon, then he showed me a couple of parks around the
Port of Oakland.
(45 km, 75 m gain)
2013-09-06 Moraga-Wildcat Started off as
the Mutton-Chop ride with Cal Cycling. Met tri-athlete and optometry student
Christie, who said she's thinking of going to Moraga when we got to the
intersection of Skyline and Grizzly Peak. She didn't object to me tagging
along, and we proceeded at a pretty damn fast pace. By the time we were climbing
out back into Tilden, I could barely keep up, but it was a great ride.
(55.3 km, 1062 m gain)
