    Weekend Activities - 3/7 to 3/8

    Hot diggity dog ... I just swapped on-call schedules, so it looks like I can ride this weekend after all ... woohoo. However, it looks like a racing weekend. With Berkeley TTT on Saturday, and Menlo Park Grand Prix on Sunday, looks like there is nothing local on the schedule. There is a ride inland ... waaay inland, so that's a drive for me, so I'll put that in the backburners.

    Any other activity I am missing? Is it time for another Mellow Ride, or should I go for killing my legs?

    I'm probably gonna try and get in some off-road unicycling with my brother this weekend (and capture video of it all ). After doing centuries the last two weekends this will be a nice change.

    Hoping to go for a mellow ride Saturday (traveling Sunday). I've been sick, traveling, or it's been pouring rain since I moved, so I haven't gotten in a ride at the new place yet.

    Sorry to hear that. I was just thinking, while on my ride on Saturday, that it's been a long time since riding with you. Perhaps Pete will be well enough to join on a Mellow Ride as well.

    Gee, mellow ride, enjoying the ride ... what a concept.

    LOL... you make it sound like us masochists don't enjoy the ride. We do, just in a more sick/twisted way.

    Just kidding around... actually I like mellowing out on the flat sections to shoot the breeze and enjoy the scenery. But something about hills (up or down) and that concept disappears

    There's the 2nd B&B ride on Sunday morning that BigBossMan is hosting starting in Danville. It's not gladiator material, but it's 30 miles + Amici's pizza B&B Slowpoke ride #2, reloaded
    It would appear that the strain was more than he could bear....

    How about an East Bay hills ride after watching Marco / Ruth blast through the TT?

    Hills, or flats, it's not my neighborhood so we'd need someone more experienced to host...

    Yeah, we should definitely do an east bay hills ride after the TT!

    I don't know the area extremely well either. Anyone have any ideas?

    This weekend is one big conflict! Sunday will be my first roundy round race in Menlo Park and Saturday I think I'm marshaling a running race?
    After being sick and a bad in grown Toe nail (from toe straps) I don't fee fit enough for anything, but it will be fun even if I only make one lap around the course!

    I think I hate missing Bossman's/BikeShearer's pizza ride the most : (

    I am hoping to get in a ride with some friends. If that falls through, I would love to join the East Bay hills ride. We could even do Beaker's Diablo climb (from Orinda BART, which is right by the TTT finish). About 60 miles RT and plenty of climbing, but a great ride.

    http://trail.motionbased.com/trail/activity/7485434

    Here are some of the routes from the other two East Bay hills BF rides (both starting from Orinda) led by Georges and Beaker:

    I don't know about this,. The ride all the way back into SJ yesterday, I was thinking, "when is this guy going to slow down?!?"

    Anyway, I'll probably be in Tahoe next weekend, so no ride for me.

    Good thing I didn't go with you ... I would have been so far behind, I'd probably still be out there.

    ooh, an East Bay Hills ride? Hmmm, I'll need to check with my social secretary first. I've been thinking about some alternative routes to the last couple as well - perhaps including Claremont and Shepherd Canyon next time round, we could have a pitstop in Montclair this time round.

    When would the TTT wrap up?
