Anyone riding tomorrow?

Looks like a break in weather from 11am - 5pm. Go buy your See's candies today for Vday.

I'd like to ride tomorrow. Did you have any particular route in mind?

Maybe a 40-50 miler (max) so that if it does rain we aren't caught-out somewhere in Timbuktu...

The sun's actually out right now and I just got back from a quickie (!) 15 miler. Hedging here just in case there is no break in the weather tomorrow. Every little bit counts.

Yeah something like that mellum. Probably over to the usual climbs, King's and Old La Honda or perhaps farther south to HW 9. Depends on who else wants to show up.

Don't know, depends when the roads dry, so don't want to commit to a time. Probably just do a solo out to Dublin/San Ramon via Palomares.

It's fine to walk around, but hurts immediately when I try to ride. I finally saw my doctor and got the Patello-Femoral syndrome diagnosis. So that's confirmed. I have a physical therapy session March 2nd, but I'm pretty sure they will show me the same exercises I have read about and have been doing since this all started.

I need a cartilage transplant or something. Who knows really. I should take up swimming or get one of those recumbants with a hand-crank.

My plans for the extended president's/valentine's day weekend are still up in the air. Not sure if it will work out but I have this inkling to ride up to Skyline early tomorrow morning in search of snow ...

A good meeting place is behind the Pioneer Hotel at 84 and Whiskey Hill Rd. (near Canada) in Woodside. It looks like the driest period is supposed to be between noon and 4 pm. We could tentatively plan to meet around 11 or 11:30 if that seems like a good idea. Perhaps final details can be worked out in the morning pending updated weather reports. It may be clear and we can start earlier.

Hope the rehab works out well for you - taking time off is tough, but it's worth doing it right. Hopefully a new bike fit might fix the route cause?

I'm hoping to sneak out for a couple of hours some time tomorrow - but don't know when. I was originally planning a Tam ride with a friend, but a rain check is the order of the day.

Chris,

Maybe check if you are over/under pronating. They sell wedged shaped shims for your cleats to correct for that. I think Specialized makes some.

Just an idea.

11am is probably a better time for me to meet there. Figure an hour to ride over Sunnyvale.

I had this done as part of my fit to correct overpronation in my right foot, although my shims went underneath the insole of the shoe. I could definitely feel the difference.

I'd have to leave now and the weather looks too sketchy, so I'll probably just stay local or hit the trainer. I knew we'd be paying for all that good weather we had in January : (

Probably just Monday and Tuesday for me.

Monday = From home, to Woodside, up Kings, Down to steep part of Tunitas, watch race... back up down Kings, Crestview on the way home, etc..

Tuesday = Ride up Sierra, down Felter, weather dependent if we will ride more the that (Calaveras, etc).
