Damn ... that is beautiful! What a great view.

Proof that Northern California is a horrible place to ride bikes. The scenery is crappy, the weather is horrible, the roads are boring and the traffic is a mess. You are better off in the snow.





A ride down Old LaHonda and back up Tunitas Creek.

From the return leg of today's commute. 25 mile round trip. Only a pale image of how amazing it actually looked. Gorgeous day. Around 60F on the ride in and around 70F going home. Rain returns tomorrow.

Did the Southern Inyo Double last weekend. What a great ride! Lots of good friends, good weather, and great scenery. I'll get around to a trip report soon, but until then, this kinda gives a hint of the vibe.
