    Nelson, you need better forecasts. cell phone forecasts are the worst since they are nationwide approximations. Ktvu, kpix, kron4, etc. do a much better job.

    Dion, if you are not making any of these rides, why do you keep replying to them?

    I figured would be a good title-I'm sure it won't rain much-if it does.

    Dion doesn't drink-you need to make promises of bringing exotic pieces of Kale for him to make juice out of.

    Ah… for a minute there I was excited about the possibility of some rain…

    I usually decide which way to go when I get far behind based upon the lingering dust cloud.

    Stu, my bike is packed up and barring any catastrophe at my wife's office (which is always possible), I'll be there.

    Ready to roll by 6 I believe is the usual plan. Seems like we usually wait a few minutes though in case someone shows up late. With traffic always being questionable, and the long drive up 9, I usually leave SJ area around 5, aiming to get there 5:30-5:45.

    Looks like sunset is around 8:11 tonight.

    Thursday Night Rain Gap Ride Oh My

    Great time as always! I realized pretty early that I had no energy in my legs so it was a bit of a grind. I kept looking down thinking my tire was flat. It never was haha.

    That Ranger was nice when I said hi as I rode by. I wonder how fast I was actually going, but I bet it was only 12-13 mph at most.

    Funny you mention that, I was thinking the exact same thing...

    Everyone's pulling away as we go up this hill and I was thinking I must have a flat... but nope... It was a sleep deprived week of work for me... (oh wait... what am I doing here I have a conference call real early tomorrow - Ugh)
