A Rainy January Commute from Diablo Scott on Vimeo.
After the New Year's Day ride on a Friday, I didn't ride on Saturday like usual. Then came the rains and I missed the next two Saturdays also (9th and 16th)... but I did get a Junction ride on Sunday the 10th. So anyway, this IS the first official Saturday Morning Ride of 2016.
JB e-mailed me yesterday and said "rain or shine", so I was semi-committed as well. On my morning dog walk I eyed the skies... not raining at the moment but there were some scary black clouds. I made the call: "there will be riding".
Lots of green and wet on The Mountain. Just a little drizzly up to Junction, we only saw two other riders, both coming down. OH, and some crazy MTBers on a distant trail yelling "whoop" and "yee-hah".

There are two new benches at Junction - in honor of Pete Zucker and his wife Monica, whose stories have been told here before... nice tribute to nice people who brought honor to Diablo. I don't know what happened to the Eagle Scout benches.
We weren't the only riders on The Mountain today - check out these smiling faces!
Good thing we turned around at Junction - as soon as I got home, the rain got really heavy.
