Where'd Everybody Go (on Foothill)?
 
I've been riding the "west way" again recently down the peninsula from Stanford to Cupertino/Santa Clara -- it's warm, the moon is out, and NO BIKES on the road. Last night I saw two bikes over an hour of riding (and only one on Foothill). The night before, one. I passed a bike store & saw a bunch of guys indoors riding on trainers in front of a TV... you're missing out!

I still ride in the morning with occasional commuter jumping on my wheel announced then hammering away for last 100ft before their turn out. You know to show that roadie who is the boss. :lol:
I think you are talking about outfitter peleton spin class or something like that.

Heading up Page Mill on my mini as soon as I put down the smart phone... :)

(Edit a couple of hours later....)

Tonight: ZERO!

Not even one of "those" guys :)

Okay, today I saw six, maybe eight bikes. Before 2PM, though :) and yeah, I was overtaken by two who rushed up for a couple of blocks before turning off (and one who was tailing me up the hill then pedalled like crazy past me on the straight downgrade along Page Mill. Nice bike, but why wear a baclava on a nice day like today?)
