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.

42B - Bicycle warning sign86 viewsWe were now descending again, this time on Altamont. Approaching one corner, I saw a warning sign aimed specifically at bicycles, which I am not used to seeing.

I couldn't find a real picture of it but it kind of looked like this, with some text warning too.

I heeded the signs and slowed my speed. As I came around a left corner, a scene of horror greeted my eyes. Ron was lying underneath a guardrail, up against one of the posts, completely still. His bike was in the middle of the road, a bit downhill from him. Andrea had stopped about a block further down the hill, and was just getting off her bike and running up.
