    Anyone up for Skyline (Napa) tomorrow?

    This would be for Saturday the 9th.

    Maybe meet at 7:45 at Streblow parking lot and jam as many bikes into as few vehicles as possible and be at the pay-to-play parking lot when it opens at 8?

    I'd like to get an early start to avoid the heat. Afterwards, we could get food somewhere and take it to Napa Smith Brewery. Mmmm.

    Or not.

    I can't make it - got prior arrangements.

    I took a soil sample on Lower Skyline Trail last evening. I can vouch for it's looseness.

    Enjoy the ride!
    I get paid to ride shotgun.

    I hope the "prior arrangements" aren't with a doc!

    I'm driving from Oakland at 8, to ride Rockville at 8:45. Maybe 2.5 hour ride. I usually park at Safeway.

    So me & the dawg hied up to Hogan. 'Twas brillig! A cooling breeze helped a lot, and the fact that we started by 8 helped a lot. Glimpsed one other rider, maybe female, on the lower trail, but after that sighting I never saw her again.

    Anyone up for Skyline (Napa) tomorrow?-image.jpgSafeway on Hwy 80 on Green Valley rd. Then you ride in and out of Rockville from Green Valley rd (1 mile). It's a good warm up, which is key as I get into upper 40's, and there is a bike path through the fancy neighborhood, a challenging dirt climb on S curves, then you use the back side of the park in and out. I like it way better.

    After buddies flaked, I rolled Crocket. Those downhill sections are so good, but it's a punishing place, heat, climbs, cow prints.

    That dog is freaking adorable. What is it, like a Pibble/Queensland X, or something like that?
