"Flat_Man" has everything to do with my affection for changing tubes/tires...
Never really thought about San Joaquin being all that flat but you are definitely right. The only challenge on some days is the wind!
To get hill training though, I ride west from Stockton, CA on Howard Rd to Tracy Blvd (Tracy, CA - go figure) and then make my way through the Old Altamont Pass to Livermore, CA. About 35 miles 1-way. Heckuva ride though!
Saw the dog and expected it to go after my feet. From reading the boards here they can nearly always be outrun. The dog turned directly into my path at the last minute. The following 4 days are a little fuzzy in my head.
Today was the first day back on the bike. Was able to put in 20 miles and felt really good.
