Olá (it's hello in Portuguese)


I've just joined, as you can probably guess...

I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1967, live in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1999, and ride a 2006 Specialized Allez (enty level). I've been riding on and off since 2006, but for the past 3 or 4 months I've been riding more frequently (3x week).

I used to hate climbing ('cause I am/was really bad at it), but lately I've been going up Mt. Diablo (to the junction, not the summit) via Northgate Road a lot, and I feel like I am getting better (or at least, I'd like to think so). PR from Northgate to junction is 56 minutes, my goal is < 50 min. My other regular ride is from Walnut Creek to Danville and back (~20 miles).

That's it for now...
