    Yeah it was. A huge hamburger at Valley Ford, a bag of Cheetos a muffin and Coke at Nicasio helped me make it back without bonking.

    Katy and I did 50 miles in Marin (San Geronimo>Nicasio>Hicks Valley>Marshall Wall - easy side>Point Reyes>Nicasio>San Geronimo).

    What a beautiful day to ride! Perfect weather, little wind, 65 degrees and not a cloud. I really love riding in that area. It was a good ride for base miles as it wasn't insanely hilly (3600 vert).

    Some pics:

    Epic day to ride! Tons of people out and little traffic. Rode from Winters to Cantelow via Pleasants Valley Rd.
    Did 3 circuits of Gibson Canyon and Stieger, back over Cantelow to Winters. All great except getting passed on the way back going up Cantelow like I was standing still by 2 DBC riders.....

    Pretty, DS.

    I was actually thinking about getting one of those Merckx frames at one point. Glad I didn't, that would have been awkward.

    Left the house today heading to the ARBT, intending to ride about 10-15 miles, so I could slowly get back into riding. 10 became 15, 15 became 20, 20 became 25, 25 became 33.22. Ended up turning around only because it looked like rain. Good thing I did, because my way back was solid headwind.

    My friend Mike and I rode from San Bruno up to Brisbane, up and over San Bruno Mountain, down through Daly City, up Great Highway, through Golden Gate Park, down Oak, down the wiggle, and went to Box Dog Bikes where I exchanged a part I bought last week. We stopped into Zeitgeist for a cheeseburger.

    I had just finished my burger when the wife calls... "you remember I have a meeting a 3pm right?"... it was 13:52. So we hauled ass to try to make the 2pm CalTrain; no luck, got close enough to see the train pull away from the station. Only option was to ride back to San Bruno via the Bayview->Brisbane->SSF->San Mateo Ave corridor. There was a headwind and Mike was definitely spent and couldn't hang on my wheel anymore so around Brisbane Mike gave me the go ahead to take off (Mike knows his way back). I walked in the door at exactly 3:00pm and clocked in 40.1 miles.

    Living room. Trainer. 1:49:25. '06 Vuelta, disk 2. 45 minutes of simulated climbing, a bunch of simulated sprints. Some warm up and cool down easy spin. Followed by mild post-ride bonk, even though I ate a really big breakfast.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Dang - looking at that bike again, I think you've just about nailed a perfect bike build (aesthetically speaking, notwithstanding steerer tube). That all comes together so well.

    Morgan Territories

    Decided to do the first climb of Morgan Territories of 2009 for me. I thought it might be a bit chewed up after the rains so I took Jake. It wasnt actually too bad. The Livermore side of the climb certain gives you a workout (I forgot how steep it was). It was pretty chilly and very windy at the top.



    Clayton Side Near the Top



    Mud !



    The Wall on the Livermore side

    Cgallagh and I rode over Steiger then onto Pleasants Valley and up to the dam, back along 128 to Winters, down the 505 frontage roads to home, for 43+ miles. Headwind out and back -- the high pressure system blew over while we were on the way to Winters. We got home in time to beat a few torrential downpours.

    I'm learning that taking pics while training is darned near impossible. At least I remember to take the camera with me...

    Why thank ya. In my head, the brown went well with the white and silver, but I wasn't positive it'd work in real life. I'm glad I didn't chicken out and get black instead.

    Had another weekday off and Jr. didn't want to hang out with me anymore after doing so on Thursday and all weekend.

    So I shipped him off to daycare so he could play with his gang.

    Once it got above freezing (about 930) I loaded the Tokyo up for a ride. I want to give her a name but all I can think of is "Ichiban" and really my Trek will always be my "number one". What's "number two"? Nahh! Forget it.

    Rode into Sacramento to meet up with the ARBT somewhere. I'm riding down H street when I get my first flat on the new ride... Those MONDO specialized tires suck. Ridiculously soft is an understatement. It just swallowed a 1" nail whole... So I put a new tube in and one of my riding buddies walks by (he's a mail carrier) so we chat a bit about the new bike and STP, yada yada. Got back on and met up with the trail at Sac State and rode with the intention of going to Sunrise. By the time I got to William Pond park (pics below) I was ready to turn back.

    Absolutely beautiful when I stopped on the bridge. Nice crisp breeze and abundant sunshine. Lots of people out riding. Hammered home at top speed and I have no idea how far I went because I don't have a 'puter on it but it was somewhere around 40-50mi. Great day. Time to pick up the kiddos and get out of costume and into character...





    Here she is with the new bars and levers... Oh, and gold plated bottle cage. It just needs a subwoofer.

    It was gorgeous in Northern California today. So clear! I think I saw Diablo from just outside of Sacramento, and I can't remember the last time I was able to see San Francisco from Oakland.

    I would have loved to ditch out and do some riding.

    Yeah! Today was extremely rare... About 5 days a year you can see the definition of Diablo from Sacramento. The weird thing about today was all of those 5 days include 35+ mph wind. It was about still until late afternoon. Weird actually. When I went to pick up the kids there was a swarm of THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of pigeons. It was beautiful if you removed the word "pigeon" from the equation. Sulley didn't fly through it which was good.

    Katy and I did this route today:

    http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/A-K-Saturday-Ride

    45 miles and about 5000 vert. It was a nice solid ride, not too hot and not too cold. My left knee felt a bit achy.....maybe a hangover from Sierra/Welsh/Morrison last weekend!

    Cgallagh and I went for a training ride with the race team. We had a wicked headwind that wasn't bad in the group but was strength-sapping otherwise. Chris's seat-post bolt broke and he managed to get to Velo-City in Winters for a repair. I hung with the team who decided on the roll (as opposed to "on the fly") to race the last 15 miles, including the west side of Cantelow. My spirit was willing but my legs were weak and I watched them speed away. I ended up taking a lesser hill, added 5 miles, and made it a 50+ miler, since I have century in 2 weeks.

    The extra training I've done this week took its toll -- my legs still feel like lead. Think I'll take tomorrow off.
