    I've never been to Rive Gauche, but I'll check it out the next time I roll by. Our go-to place is the Yellow Vase ... tucked into the SE corner of Malaga Cove.

    Shimano SPD mountain bike pedals and cleats on MTB shoes are what I use.

    BTW: For that fear of getting hit from behind, try a rear view mirror (helmet or eyeglass mounted).

    I rode my Colnago Decor Super C96 today around the peninsula. The gearing is far from perfect, but I've decided I love that bike. There really is something about steel.
