This cracks me up, it looks like this guy got up to "The Wall" on Mt. Diablo early to stake out a good spot.
He looks so jazzed to see his hero Lance Oldtstrong powering to the top for the win.

Actually, I don't know the fellow. The picture just makes him look like he is my biggest fan.
I am sporting my spankin' new, finishers only, 20th Anniversary DMD Jersey. (2011 & 2012)

He looks like he is operating a camera remote. He planned a selfie with his hero!

Just shows that the fellow has good taste in heroes.


I'm happy if I can get part way up The Wall, even more so if nobody is pointing and laughing.

Made plans to go watch Stage 3 of the Tour of California but that didn't materialized. So instead I went up Diablo where the wind wanted to play.

Spotted Bikeforum member @cccorlew in Port Costa as I got lost trying to find McEwen because of a road closure this morning. After I double back, I found it.

Always neat seeing forum members, even if its in passing.

Tricia told me if I checked BikeForums I'd find out who that cool looking cyclist was. Pretty cool to be a Bike Forums Recognized Rider™

We did the Scenic loop from Martinez. I'd remembered it as being longer, but it was less than 25 miles. What a beautiful day!.


Tricia on Arch Bridge on the Pickeleweed trail near Granger Park in Martinez because that's where were riding bikes today.

That's great!

Way to rock that jersey that you earned. LO for the win! Let LA's stuff fall where it may.

Tres cool. Not an easy place to bike to. And at that elevation, not the easiest place in the world to bike in, either.

This is either the worst name ever for a porta-potty company or the best name ever for a porta-potty company. Sunday, 8/30/15 on Wildcat Road, Berkeley, between Grizzly Peak and the Brazil Building.
