if anybody is in berkeley/oakland, i'll be riding out from domingo peet's near the claremont hotel at 7:10 a.m.
Were you in BBC kit waiting for KJ to come out of Peets at the start? If so, I remember you.

Was hoping to finally make the regular HoP but breakfast at the kid's high school takes precedence. Hopefully, the week after.

My son's soccer game is 3:50 pm on 9/18 so I'd be able to make that HoP or HoP Lite (and maybe Diablo too) that day.

Yup, I'm still game. Let's do it!

And yes, break off at Blackhawk Rd.

How about dl33? He's the one that instigated this whole thing!

Bloody typical, can't make this one. On the upside, I will get some quality time with my daughter and her soccer team instead. 50:50 at best for the 18th.

You kids are talking about 9/18 for the HoP-lite + Diablo ride, right?

No, actually 9/11 for HOPLite + Diablo ... hopefully my belly-ache will subside by the morning. I may not be in town 9/18.

Hey obi1, how was it? I woke up Sat AM to heavy drizzle and super wet roads + a BlastRadius text saying he was doing to PV. Headed over the bridge and the sky opened up and had a good time w/PV & Spectrum.

It was a great ride; http://connect.garmin.com/activity/49529128

You're right it was wet that morning, when I came over the Altamont had to turn on the wipers but, the ride was dry for the most part.

What is PV & Spectrum?

PV & Spectrum are just rides around San Mateo & Woodside. You can time it right where you can do PV then Spectrum. I read on fb, that HoP Lite last Sat more 'Hop like' than normal...hope to make it out there in October.
