Hey all.
I went on a ride today with a group from the NorCal forum, including our own taxi777 (in his 50 jersey!)
I thought I'd toss in a photo I shot that I like, along with a Taxi777 shot

I've seen some nice ride photos posted here, but I'd like to see more!

Where were those pictures taken, Curtis? I did my first century (actually, a metric double) in the Los Altos / Santa Cruz / San Gregorio area.

I met a few riders I know from the cyberspace land of Bikeforums.net for a ride. We went From Danville CA up the South gate of Diablo to the junction, down the North gate, out to Clayton and around the "back side" of Diablo via Morgan Territory Road and back to Danville. 60-some miles and a ton of climbing. It took most of the day as everyone was very kind and we didn't drop anyone. I had a blast.
Here a slide show of photos via flickr.

Sunshine and no snow. You really know how to hurt a guy don't you!

p.s. I spent 6 months in the Bay area working with the US Coast Guard/Customs and DEA working on counter narcotics issues. Enjoyed the Bay area - the task force had less than stellar results - but we spent a ton of money. Tax payers got little return on investment.

The clouds, frost and rain/snow is over on this side of the continent!
Warm day yesterday, 32 degrees F, ice on the roads and the earlyish
snow took most of the leaves off the trees (they fell late this year).

Inspired by the NorCal forum and their jersey I designed a 50+ jersey. We pooled and money and ordered a bunch. They're gone now (except for 1 race cut large I ordered by mistake)


That Oatbran ride costs $1150, and might kill me. Other than the money and death it looks like fun.

OATBRAN was my first week-long tour, back in 1997. If you like the desert and wide open scenery, it's a great ride. But, from the time you leave Carson City, you'll only see two trees until you get to some of the higher passes near the Utah border. I've driven US 50 a bunch of times, and really like those wide open spaces.


BTW - what's the sizing on the large race cut? If it's a "Euro" large, I might be interested...that's a nice lookin' jersey.

It's large, but for folks with a racer build. As in not-fat-american.

It's a spectacular ride, this was taken the first week of June this year, when the road was still closed to car traffic. The highway department clears the snow in early May, then keeps the gates closed to cars for 4 to 6 week for bikes and runners.
There are several VERY nice rides in this area, hot springs and wonderful hiking.

I have just recently moved to this area (Lincoln, CA) and don't have any fabulous photos, yet. Here's one of the fast company in which I have fallen. There were actually 10 of us on this ride. We ride MWF.
