    We spent yesterday cooking turkey breast & assorted sides so we could ride today. Actually, c_gallagh went to the gym, I rode solo and relished every minute of the crisp air and colored scenery.

    And then I ate twice what I burned, I think, at our son's place, which means we'll ride tomorrow, too.

    To minimize what LanceOldstrong posted, and because it was done tandem-style -- We're old, out-of-shape, and slow, but as game as the day is long. Thankful that any day we can wake up, let alone ride, is a gift. Celebrate yourselves and your abilities.

    That's a very cool loop. How do you guys get down Marsh Creek Rd without fearing for your lives? I guess the key is to get out there early on a weekend? During the week, there are tons of crazy commuters on that road.

    Your typical double-dead-end-ranch-road ride. Ride was great; roads not so great.

    We were only a little scared. Really, it isn't too bad on the weekends. Early in the day during summer is even better.

    Had a nice four days of riding. Rain bike shifted like crap. Will see if new chain will do the trick.

    One thing I noticed is that since I switched to my rain bike with fenders I get more people jumping on my wheel, announced of course.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!

    Exactly. I would never ride that rode on a weekday becuase of the commuter madness but it is a whole other story on a weekend morning.

    Cal Ped Turkey Ride on Tday - First time I had done that ride, and loved it. Kinda of a blah route but seeing 200+ cyclists going up the blvd was pretty cool. Got many PR's that day as well. On Friday I hit the dirt and enjoyed my most recent build, a 2002 Trek 8500 through the always enjoyable Pine Canyon below Mt. Diablo. Saturday was a out and back on Mines Rd with the club, what a great day to ride. Although I think a little tectonic shift was happening as the initial climb seemed steeper than usual.

    Saturday: Domestic chores in the morning, tandem ride on a positively balmy afternoon.

    Sunday: A very social and fun shop ride.

    And on Thanksgiving, this.

    Glad we pigged out on the rides, as the coming weekend looks better for indoor sports.

    I'm sure you can, but without pics, it didn't happen.

    He'll be amused at how quickly you two went there...as am I...hee-hee!

    Almost 20 miles, just snuck it in before some workmen came to do a little work on the house.
    We just moved in and I needed to find a "Go To" loop in my new neighborhood. 'Ya gotta have a few of those when you have between showers and before and appointment time constraints.

    I found a good one in Clayton and really had a great spin. http://app.strava.com/runs/30442879#

    Rode with WW today on an Impromptu ride up Mt. Eden, then over to Hicks. Great ride, tough climbs. Large group for an Impromptu Ride ... ~ 25 people. Nice showing.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    We joined Joel, et al, for his Heavy Metal ride on the tandem. About halfway through, while standing and climbing a hill, we heard a kind of "kapow!" sound and the chain fell off the middle ring onto the smaller ring and off (in less time than it took to read that). Turns out we lost 4 of our 5 bolts. We limped a couple miles to the Trailhead Coffee and Bike Shop, where the proprietor fixed us up so we could enjoy a fast, smooth descent down Folsom-Auburn Rd.

    Fun ride with good people. I hope we can do it again soon.

    What time were you at the Trail Head cafe ? I saw a tandem coming down, westbound Taylor road about 10:45 or so, just a guess. Anyways, that's my neck of the circus. The proprietor is Jerry { ? I really suck at remembering names) he is very helpful. He showed me how not to pinch a tube during replacement. Checked out my wheel NC. Maybe I have met you there and not known it. I was chatting it up with a tandem crew back in October at the cafe on the deck. Remember how nice and warm and sunny October is in the Sierra foothills ? I offered that my spouse and I would never get along on a tandem, prolly a divorce. Mr. chuckled and said yeah, I have some claw marks on my Ar$$$. Anyhow, Mr. Lardo, that's me, finally made it out and climbed Indian Hill road. For a oldster newbie it might as well be Mt Suribachi. If you see a puffy blob yellow Jersey puffing up the Taylor road hill from Loomis puffing, wheezing, spitting and snorting away like death is near, that's yours truly trying to work into shape .>.>>>..

    There was NO ONE There last weekend heh heh heh.

    That was probably us -- blue/pewter fade, red black & white kits. We don't get up there often enough but enjoy the rides & views when we do.

    That downhill on Auburn-Folsom Rd. back toward Folsom Bikes is a blast.

    Jerry is a great guy, and the coffee there is yummy. Incidentally, Jerry used to ride for Team 7-11 as a pro.
