    Santa is coming early today..he (well, she) is taking me to get a juicer (hopefully it won't end up on craigslist in week ) and then time to head down to the basement to try a new cycling video. I've gotten bored of the Carmichael Training System videos (other riders on trainers) so Santa got me a 'Tour Wild California' video so I can at least enjoy some of the beauty of our state while suffering. Dang hard to get on the trainer, but I always feel better about myself afterward and I notice the difference on the long rides (plus this S.O.B. needs to drop ~15lbs).

    So what are you doing this rainy weekend?-trainer2.jpg

    ^^^Ha, funny considering we posted at the same time...and for the record, there is always some seepage in my basement, but the massive heat I generate while I am on the trainer will surely evaporate all unwanted H2O.

    edit: I purposely took the pick to avoid the water that is just to the left of the trainer.

    board games... what's your game?

    Seems like a good way to connect with the family as we smack talk each other by the fireplace.

    Yesterday, did a little ride in the rain with Zen Turtle



    Was pouring rain in Los Gatos at 6am, when we started..

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    El Sereno was a good climb in the rain. Over to Bohlman and down McGill to the reservoir

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    The coldest part of the ride was dropping down Bear Creek Rd to Boulder Creek - torrential rain and very cold. We stopped in at Rainbow's End coffee shop to warm up. Down to Felton and ZT took me on a tour of Roaring Camp Railroads trails - awesome! We went on a search for the crowdsourced xmas tree

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    This place is awesome fun on CX! We were following one of shredchic's tracks but decided to cut it short and find a way to the road.. this bridge wasn't quite rideable

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    ZT raised the idea of a detour to the Summit Store for Gizdich pie and so pie gravity pulled us up the mountain. No rain on Zayante which made it bearable!

    From Zen Turtle Xmas Ride - Dec 2013


    I don't usually like to start a ride if it's already raining but when I do, it always seems to be with Zen Turtle

    well the short story is we got wet!
    but we did get just under two hours in before we all got fully saturated!
    good to ride with you Mike.
    back home warm and dry watching the rain falling in anticipation of the 9'er Seahawks game.

    Holy Cra*
    Got home an hour ago. Record rainfall for Palo Alto, San Jose...coming down the wind was sideways. Got to my house (85/Camden) and the street was flooded. Since I was soaked, I spend 45 mins. cleaning out storm gutters....didn't help much. Rain slowed and the water went down, but it was scary. After Kennedy, I climbed Santa Maria Road to Belgatos (short cut for me) and then went down Belgatos. Halfway down it started. Couldn't even see. Had to lock em up and stop the bike. Honestly couldn't see the trail it was raining that hard. Closed my eyes as the bike came to a stop. Surreal.
    For those in the know, it was a pee yourself to keep the knees warm kind of ride..... Glad I made it home. 20 min. shower fixed all problems.
    Glad I went out, but If I'd stayed home 20 mins. longer, I'd have never left...

    Cheers!

    Just got back from wandering around town, dinner, wine tasting, and some shopping. Somehow a Spec. Safire Comp ended up under the tree. Supposedly this means spousal nagging to ride more. I guess I could have other things to complain about.

    She's already signed off on a road trip to Oak Ridge/Waldo Lake in the coming year.

    Got called into work this afternoon. Tree with wires down on Panoramic Highway past 4 Corners. Dropped into Fairfax on Fairfax-Bolinas Road and checked out Corte Madera Creek (17') - 19' is flood stage and Sleepy Hollow.

    Spent weekend installing new front and rear derailleurs and shifters. Guess I will have to wait a little longer to try them out.

    I went for a quick ride today at 3pm just after the rains stopped. Blue skies mixed with rain clouds and river bed riding among many small waterfalls. So what are you doing this rainy weekend?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1356329361.103448.jpg
    And shrooms are plentiful

    Got some shots of the rain's effects.
    Many here should recognize this first shot.

    These are taken just a few hundred feet north. Impromptu waterfalls.

    I am hoping to get out before 9:00AM Monday morning to assess the damage up in the Sierra Azul/Kennedy trails area. Should be some fun downed trees and rockpile landslides to contend with.
