Partner, Chain Reaction Bicycles in Redwood City & Los Altos California. Raced back in the 70s. Still seeking out challenging new climbs. Have found nothing tougher than Sonora Pass. Ventoux isn't too far behind though. Look forward to riding the Stelvio some day.

  • Star Trek a voyager fans will appreciate this memorial
  • Aptly-named pass!
  • At the foot of the Gorges du Nan. Pretty amazing place. Not so easy getting there on a hot day though!
  • Eau complimentary avec glacé! Enroute to final climb on stage ending in Gap.
  • Typical bar scene at TdF summit
  • Place de depot de bois de Petit Vache. Because any cow that made it up this far must be pretty darned lean!
  • Back to basics (the commute home)
  • #sunflower
  • If the house on the hill has a million dollar view, what does that say about my bike? I get dozens of million-dollar views every ride!

  • Last week winter, today it's summer. What happened to spring? #longwinter
  • This is cool
  • It's tradition. We rode our bikes to check out a dog (6 years ago, Jack our psycho Corgi) so now we're at the humane society checking out cats.
  • House with what, 6 million dollar view of SFO?

  • Mid-ride post-seizure Tylenol stop. Unplanned after a torrid first half of the climb came to a sudden halt.
  • Cookie test. Doesn't quite cover the face.
  • Front, side and rear daytime visibility. Didn't realize new Bontrager Flare rear light was so visible from the side. Good thing, that!
  • Bring in' home the bacon. Er, pastries. Just as healthy I'm sure. Tour de France caravan "backpack" comes in handy!

  • What happens after the customers have left the bike shop. Cute Corgi YouTube vids.
  • I don't get the attraction. Guys showing off expensive cars in Woodside. Kevin's paint job on his bike put these cars to shame.
  • Can't pass up cookies!
  • Had to stop for this picture; winter gloves and Instagram don't play well together.
