  • Heading back the way we came. Livermore maybe some other day.
  • Good ride
  • Either it's REALLY fresh or has so many preservatives it's a self-embalming aid.
  • Today it's not the miles; it's the quality of those miles.
  • Any day you can see your shadow is a good day to ride!

  • Looks unreal
  • Scariest place I've ever been
  • The last of the peloton winds up the last of the Lacets climb.

  • 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!
  • I *AM* the weakest link. Good bye!
  • #duckpond
  • #sunflower

  • Best cyclist-friendly place to eat in the world? #pescaderobakery
  • 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?
  • Becky on her way to new PR on commute home!

  • Messy morning on Skyline
  • #cookiefacetest

  • Not looking forward to the day whose high point will be passing the time reading a newspaper at the coffee shop. Don't think it has to be that way. #stayactive
  • See that fog up on Skyline? Did a drivetrain clean yesterday. After this morning's ride, it needs another. Grrrr.
  • Summer's coming
  • LaHonda duck pond
  • Once-proud Mastadon fallen in the field.

  • Last remnants of Machine Gun Man's metal sculpture falling into disrepair. Rust never sleeps. (Rusting remnants of mechanical bird in tree).
  • Headin' up the hill with Becky
  • Top of West Old LaHonda
  • Proof Halo sweatbands do work. Evidence they should be washed once in a while.
  • 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!
  • Hard ride, we earned it this time.
  • Bring in' home the bacon. Er, pastries. Just as healthy I'm sure. Tour de France caravan "backpack" comes in handy!

  • Sometimes coffee is the only answer
  • Now THAT's a cookie!
  • Stage Road up to Highway 1
  • Lizard Day. Means winter's over.
  • Almost best time home for Becky!
  • Any day with strong shadows is a good day!
  • What happens after the customers have left the bike shop. Cute Corgi YouTube vids.
  • Camera did not pick up steam coming off the helmets. Darn.
  • 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.
  • Maybe I should wash that headband
  • That shadow looks like there's a new larger wheel size for road bikes, not just mountain bikes!
  • Just another beautiful day in Northern California.
  • Foggy but beautiful
  • How NOT to lock up a bike!
  • Bringing home the bacon. Literally. Pork burrito counts, right?

  • At least we EARNED the view!!!
  • The home stretch. Skyline & Page Mill/W Alpine
  • Tried for an ocean view but too many cars and too much speed.
  • Last unbroken Simplex front dérailleur known to man. #simplex if you even look at one of these wrong, the plastic breaks.
  • Beautiful day for a seizure
  • Rare photo of me on the Tuesday/Thursday ride,taken by George (who later crashed descending 84)
  • Starting out
  • "Super" Natural? I know less about coffee (or life in general) than I thought!
