    I work as a help desk for a Ford and Chrysler dealership. I have had to explain, in detail, to HANDFULS of sales drones that Street View is not a live image. They don't understand a lot of the obvious things in life though...

    I hear that the La Boheme restaurant at the start of your video is pretty good.

    That is friggin' awesome. How does it feel to be a stalker?

    That really is pretty cool. Bet the folks in the car really didn't mind - they probably thought it was cool too.

    I laughed my ass off when I saw these pics! Too bad they weren't taking pics of New York Ave. They would have had some good shots of me hammering up the hill in an attempt to keep up.

    When I first posted this video back in March, I caught a little flack on BikeForums for not making a complete stop at a stop sign, which happens to be at the bottom of the hill that I had to climb in order to keep up with the car before it turned onto Mount Diablo Court. I had slowed down, looked both ways, and went for it. Oops!

    Here's a better shot of the tank of a bicycle that I had to ride up said hill. It's a 2010 Trek 7000 hybrid, which is a pretty low-end bike. I made it faster by replacing the power-robbing suspension seatpost with a normal one.
