Mt. Tam Interest Sunday?

I think I'm just going to call it a big "no". It's going to be really socked in and wet with fog tomorrow and I'm not feeling the enthusiasm to ride...sorry to be a big lump

and I'm still aching from Friday's Bonny Doon ride. Or should I say Bonny Doom.

I rode the last two days and have Church in the AM. Otherwise I'd love to do the Tam loop again. Soon.

I've never done Tam so normally I would be in, but my legs are too sore after two days of riding (I am such a wimp).

If you move it to next Saturday, I'm in.

since I am booked next weekend by the boss, I am in for tomorrow.

Bummer that this cancelled, but it is cold over here in Oakland. I may go ride the flats out in the suburbs where it is really hot.

I did a "short" 42 miler today, after finishing watching the tour, and Wimbledon. Too bad Roddick ended up losing after all of that.

Ride was short, but it was by no means easy. Either the head winds were all around me, or that century on Friday took so much out of me, I'm still tired!

I quit watching at like 11-11 in the fifth set. I felt the crushing inevitability of Roddick going 2-19 against Federer.

i did that ride today!
i didnt know anyone else was thinking about doing it too, but it was wet cold and windy, but to me it felt really good while i was climbing
that was the first time i climbed it and i probably wont any time soon because im from sacramento, and the foothills are much closer to me

I did that ride around 11:30, wait for the fog to burn off. It was nice out there, not too hot, not too cool.

On Wimbledon, I felt like I was watching history in the making, so I wanted to see it to the end. It was an awesome match ... one for the ages.

I caught the end of the match (to continue O/T) and then heard Roddick's post game interview. What a class act - VERY impressed, felt awful for him.

Maybe I heard it wrong (didn't check before posting) but isn't Diablo, on the closure list of parks that the governor put out?

I'm not sure if that affects the rides to the top at all, but I was thinking a big ride to the top, other then the MDC would be a nice send off, if indeed it is closed

DiabloScott? Any info on this?
