    Only riding I did was from Canada/92 to the Water Temple and back with my two eldest daughters. The two little bumps going north from there really wore them out.

    Rode from PA to SF on Sunday. The weather was as unpredictable as anything. One moment it was too warm for arm warmers, the next moment I was covered in fog/dew. Good thing there was food in SF to motivate the ride.

    That's the coolest Diablo picture I've seen...

    I gotta get up there! It's #1 on my biking to-do list. This is ridiculous. I stare at it every day from my office window IN SACRAMENTO!!! It calls me when there's little smog... "Ride me! Ride me!" I just hate driving to ride. I like to hop on out the front door too much!

    When's the next Mt. D ride?

    PS - next Diablo ride is tomorrow - we'll be doing D-Peats, although entirely Northgate to avoid the construction.

    Yeah - see thumbnail, do you think I captured the steepness of the Wall?

    Edit - I just entered this as my first photo on Goooogle Earth. I guess they have to review these photos for security reasons so it hasn't appeared yet. I'm on a new mission!

    On Saturday, there were steel plates all the way across the road in 2 places, both at the bottom of steep switchbacks on the Southgate side. No problem going up; they didn't look to be well marked and might be a bit scary coming down.

    I'd imagine by Thursday it will all be different - it looks like they are repairing a bunch of spots, and also installing by-pass pipes for storm overflow to try and minimize the erosion ruining the road surface. There are signs out about the steel plates, one lane closed, and a possible total road closure.

    JB

    PS - this blurb is on the Mt. D. website:

    A $2.2 million major road repair and repaving project will begin at Mount Diablo State Park Monday, May 19th. Park visitors using South Gate Road may experience delays on weekdays due to construction activity. Two week advanced notice will be given prior to a four day complete South Gate Road closure. This will allow contractors to safely pave. The project is expected to be completed by November. All park roads are expected to be open without delays on weekends.

    The North Gate Road entrance in Walnut Creek and Summit Road will remain open. Dirt hiking trails in the park will not be affected by the work.

    Contractors will repave roads and repair over 60 failing culverts which divert rainwater from the road. The repairs will make the road smoother and less vulnerable to damage and closures. This is a project of the California State Parks Deferred Maintenance program (DMP) which is funded out of the state’s general fund. The 2006 Budget Act provided $90 million for DMP projects throughout the state.

    We apologize for the inconvenience during construction.

    I was staying in Morgan Hill today as I was playing in a couple of concerts in Santa Cruz. Somebody posted a ride starting from Peet's in Morgan Hill at 9:30 but when I showed up nobody was there . I ended up doing an easy spin up the Coyote Creek MUP to Hellyer Velodrome. I haven't done this in a while and it seemed like a good time because I had no desire to climb any hills for once..................and it looked like my normal loop down there (Uvas Rd.) was possibly engulfed in flames. Nothing special, just a fun easy cruise with not a hint of lactic acid....ahhhhh.

    I ran into another forumite (Sunnyvalecommuter?) by the side of the path with his son who had just punctured on a raised posthole in the middle of the path. His roadmorph mini-pump konked out on him so I offered mine. Couldn't get mine to work either. And I wasted a Co2 somehow (first time using this applicator). So I turned out to be totally useless. I felt a little awkward having to leave them there . Hope you guys got home OK.

    I was home briefly between trips on Saturday, wanted to get in a ride but also had to go to the office to print out a couple of binders, so I decided to bike to the office (Foster City to Union City via the Dumbarton).

    I took the "scenic" route on the way there (Alameda instead of Middlefield to Menlo Park), so did a total of 55 miles.

    With a 20 pound backpack.

    The high temperature I saw (on my VDO computer): 105
    The low (on the Dumbarton bridge): 91

    The winds were also knocking me all over the place. Besides the headwinds, gusty crosswinds on the bridge made me nervous about passing bikes going the other way for the first time (I was getting blown from side to side). Tough work!

    Yowza, 20lb backpack? I have started transitioning away from my camelback because I know it adds a good 8ish lbs when I load it up, and it was bugging my back. I can't imagine 20, and I'm a big guy.

    My bike computer (Sigma) showed 80 degrees when I started on hamilton at 6:30am... and I saw as high as 115! It was in the sun so the temp was probably right around 100, but still.

    Yeah. I think I"m going to be at the spin class too. (Despite what I said in another thread) I value my lungs too much.

    Hmm -- heard about the air issues back home. I've managed a couple of 30mins sessions on a stationary bike in Beijing all week. Ho hum. In BF withdrawal at the moment.

    Believe it or not, I managed 1 hour stationary sessions for 6 days a week for about 6 months.. But now that I have a proper bike again, I can't deal with the stationary.

    I was still aching from Saturday's Giro, but I decided I needed some type of recovery ride ... so I decided to go up Montebello and Mt. Eden. Visibility from the top still sucks, but the air quality is not bad.

    I'm in it to finish it.

    You have got a strange idea of a recovery ride, Ron! I'm no exercise physiologist, but from what I've read, the idea is to give the muscles some increased bloodflow from activity (to clear lactic acid) without overloading them at all by inducing training stress. Chris Carmichael suggests keeping the heartrate in zone 1 and the very bottom of zone 2. For me this is about 18-21mph max on flat ground and I found it tough to keep it down even then.

    Anyway, YMMV, that's just my take on it, and I'd love to hear why its wrong - as I said, I find it incredibly difficult to do a real ride (even my commute) at that pace so it'd be a relief to know I don't have to!

    Here was my recovery ride today, hauling my kid in the trailer to a birthday party at a stately 14mph.
