  • Volunteered at my kids' school library today and spent some quality time with the Big Book of every New Yorker cartoon
  • Fitness check/ blowing out the pipes. Not bad. Maybe I'll do some cross races after all
  • Long bike ride in Santa Cruz today. This sign at mile 70 was a tease
  • Finish area from ATOC. Fun ride today with @sportvelo and others and I ended up with a great viewing spot for the stage finish
  • Party at Seadrift Lagoon. @downtownwinesf is this your place directly across the way?
  • Best April Fools joke I have seen today: Tobin's teacher said she made brownies for the kids, then handed out these
  • Old school kit. He probably uses DOS too
  • Client meeting at this cool space. There are something like 45 biotech start-ups leasing bench space and offices in this building. Fun to check out
  • I order a macchiato almost every place I go but every place makes something different. I think the secret is having a small enough cup that it won't hold much milk or foam
  • Tobin has a playdate in San Mateo and it's a spare the air day, so it's an easy decision how to spend 3 hours until pickup time. #outdoorsisfreedom
  • This bourne is new to me. It's probably been here a while though
  • Question: am I still a type A dad if it took me 15 minutes to set up this rollers-on-the-street selfie while my kid is in a piano lesson or do I have to be on a conference call as well?
  • Just a handful of humans at Ocean Beach today but I saw a pod of 10 dolphins surfing. That was cool!
  • Devil's Slide trail. Roads with no traffic are the best
  • 1 hour effort/40km #PFSD Merckx style. Calling it 1:03:10. Time to start looking for a TT bike
  • This is my finishing time on Alpe d'Huez, more or less. I took a wrong turn before the finish, stopped the timer then restarted when I got back on track. I am calling it 59:10. My goal was sub 1 hour so good either way.
And WOW what a big climb! It starts off SO steep and you know you have to stick it out for an hour. Very hard and very intimidating
  • First PFSD in ages. Think I broke my PR by 2 or 3 minutes
  • PFSD merckx style

  • Morning coffee run and dirt ride with one of my favorite cycling buddies
  • Pretty day. Views to the ocean from west Old la Honda
  • Still have a jersey from the tri club I belonged to in Japan 1989-90. I knew if I kept it long enough it would come back in style
  • Getting ready for my first race of 2014. Got my number pinned right so the hardest part is done
  • Dawn patrol on the GGB and another tilted horizon #remedialphotography
  • Locked the bike for a meeting. Someone must think my standing sprint needs work. Ugh
  • Seated accelerations en route to school pickup. Like doing wind sprints with a parachute
  • Fancy schmancy business lunch
  • Santa Rosa Cup CX result: felt better, raced better than last week. Minor bike mechanical didn't slow me down much
  • Breaking dawn
  • Upside of insomnia
  • Square/Alpine passes arrived today #winteriscoming #prayforsnow
  • Windmill restoration looks great. Will it ever turn or is it purely a decorative windmill?
  • Checked out office space at Really nice coworking space with private offices. I may call the neighborhood the Mid-Market Technology Corridor rather than the Tenderloin though

  • Helpful guidance. I could probably eat a pig when I get back down. Maybe a couple goats too #raidmaunakea
