    fog is just offshore

    I was up at UC today. Fog didn't burn off until about 11, and the bank was hanging out there in the bay all day. It did get warmer as you headed away from the coast and up into the hills, but nowhere near 91.

    It's hot as a mofo here - my wife and I are in the essentials and trying to keep the baby cool. I'm off to find a nice cool redwood grove - or maybe ride out to the swimmin' hole. Where's that afternoon Breezer???



    edit: low temp today was 53 - over 40 degrees difference from 7am to 5:30pm

    Well, you're not going to find any cool weather there, or any dry weather for that matter - get ready to sweat!

    I miss those days. Escape over the 17. Except for when the other half of the Bay Area has the same idea.

    Today we hit 100 in Sacramento. Yay. Still hot at 11 at night. 80 by 9am, there goes the lunch ride.

    Now instead of making a run for the coast, I can spend the same amount of time making a run for Tahoe. But why don't I do it? 80 is less insane than 17. Maybe it's the built in "go west" thing...

    Dual AC, Sac style.

    Shooo!! just got back form a road ride. Man it was hot.

    We could meet in Tracy some where and play follow the leader form there. I wish I had a unit big enough to haul 4 bikes and 4 bros with gear. Some day. Yeah! we all could hit the Bottles afterward also. Sounds like fun. That is 4 so far? Some other Trogs may like to go also. Letcha know

    Mission accomplished!

    94 degrees in Los Gatos. My car AC is broken and it's such a relief to see the temperature drop as I hit the coast. They got a natural AC there as you can see in the horizon of the highway photo.

    Temperature at the trailhead is 69 degrees. It's a little nippy on descents, a little warm on the sunny climbs. In other words, perfect.

    Lots of singletrack. Lots of trees. Lots of oak.

    It's 6pm and it's too warm to go back home so I hit Planet Fresh Burrito and it's all good.

    I could mayhap show up

    If I get the Titus finished in time. Should be no problem. I laced the rear wheel two-cross with three-cross-length spokes. Oops. It's crying out for new brakes that I can't afford too.

    didn't start until 6:15pm but had tons of fun on the new RP3. Riding down "Star Wars" was a little interesting without lights last night.

    Hey DMFT, thanks for showing Nativeson(Mike) your local ride, now he can show me

    I'm at the coast and it's only 62 degrees right now. It's foggy and just about stays this way for much of the year. Yay. I'd trade this for hot weather any day. Thank goodness for this weekend since I'm heading to the North Bay and East Bay to ride.

    Are those good directions? They seem too simple. I'd hate to drive all that way & find out they're inadequate.

    9 o'clock, gentlemen?

    Finch,

    Never mind pogonip. The directions are good. You'll cross the RR tracks maybe half a mile before the dirt lot. You pop out from the trees, and it is a big staging area, trail down to the river, trail acriss the road, briefly through pogonip up to UC and then wherever.

    I'm still planning to come, um, I think. I'd say I'm 60/40 or so. I didn't even wake up 'til 9:30 today, and that worked out ok.

    Not all new

    The Frame is from the MBTB raffle, I bought the fork and all the frame parts (headset, bb, etc.) from Slarti at Roaring Mouse Cycles. The rest of the parts used to be my Jamis Dragon, which is in temporary retirement, but it's whining at me to become a fixed gear. The oldest parts originally came from my '00 Superlight. That Easton seatpost must have over 5k miles on it.

    Ride report?

    Hey guys,

    How was it? Did you ride Saturday or Sunday? I live right up the road in Felton, and went to bed Friday thinking I would join you all at the trailhead Saturday, but woke up with a pretty crappy cold and attitude. Today, Sunday morning, is beautiful, at least here in the mountains. Think I'll fill up the camelback and head out for a spin.
