JB still hasn't fixed his bottom bracket - it's become a running joke.
JB started up to the Summit with me but then his knee started hurting so he turned around at Toyon.
|Warmer and windy up past Blue Oak. |
I unzipped my windbreaker and it flapped around in the wind,
giving my shadow the appearance of a superhero with a cape.
|Bianchi Boy passed me twice but stopped at picnic areas |

Wildlife Encounter: Coyote at Diablo Ranch on the descent.
Wildlife Encounter: Jackrabbit below the Gate on the descent.
Deed of Chivalry: Saw a little loose dog starting to cross busy Walnut Avenue so I warned the traffic behind me and then stopped to rescue him. He was a friendly little fellow and came right up to me. One of the drivers also stopped and we tried to call the number on his tag but it had been disconnected ;-( Driver offered to accept responsibility for finding the owner so I continued on home.
