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.

16 - Melted glove136 viewsOn Calaveras, I was reaching down for my water bottle for the first time on my new bike, looking at the road ahead, forgetting that my water bottle is in quite a different location on the new bike than it is on my hybrid. So I accidentally grabbed the wheel instead! Thankfully I had decided to put on my full-fingered gloves - you can see the results. No harm done apart from a few scrapes and bruises.
