2008-03-02 Three Bears


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.

Friday: Commute from Foster City to Union City on the Birdy.
Saturday: Group ride on the Peninsula with the Orbea.

Bought in 2006, stolen in 2008. It took me lots of miles up and down hills and served me well. I miss it.

44 - Ron and his helmet68 viewsBy this time, the rest of our group got in touch with us and rode back up the hill to meet us. Ramon lived the closest, so he rode off to get his car. Ron said he felt well enough to continue on to a safe spot to rest. We then all mounted our bikes and coasted slowly, dragging brakes the whole way, the rest of us forming an impromptu guard around him. Alex carried the damaged helmet.

On the way, we passed a couple of bicyclists going uphill, and I heard one of them make a snide comment about Ron not wearing his helmet. Of course, it was too difficult to explain why, we were all big believers in helmets (especially after what we just saw).

We ended up riding to downtown Los Altos and went to a Peet's Coffee to get a bit to eat and drink, and just rest and relax while we waited for Ramon. We all definitely needed a chance to sit and take a break at this point.

Here is Ron smiling holding his lifesaver (photo by Alex).
