bears1.JPG

I organized a BF group ride, this time in the East Bay, incorporating part of the Grizzly Peak Century route. We started at the Pleasant Hill BART station, then took Alhambra Valley to Bear Creek Rd where we rode the Three Bears (Mama, Baby and Papa). We took rollers through El Sobrante, Pinole (where we stopped for lunch), Hercules, and Rodeo. We then rode by the refineries, one last tough hill, and then descended back through Martinez to Pleasant Hill.

On the women's bike forum that I am on, we have a special traveling "Bow" that visits different members and shares their adventures, a la "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants". It was my turn to host Bow at the end of March / beginning of April, and I wanted her to experience my different bikes.
Friday: Commute from Foster City to Union City on the Birdy.
Saturday: Group ride on the Peninsula with the Orbea.
Sunday: North Bay / SF group ride with the Ducati.

38 - Emergency roadside assistance62 viewsOn the way, I got some "emergency" roadside assistance from Doug and Henry. My chain was a bit loose and wouldn't stay in the lower gears up OLH, and then I managed to slip it entirely going to the big ring for the descent. They did an excellent job, and my bike felt better than ever (photo by Alex).

25 - Folded away60 viewsI took the same route home that night.

Unfortunately, it was overcast, rainy, and there were strong headwinds, so I didn't bother to stop for any more pictures. It was still a good ride though.

Here is the bike parked at home.
