Damn, I missed two Winter Wednesday Junctions in a row! Once for work, and once for family. So I was READY for today and I felt good. Charlie and Justin met me at The Church. We talked about political debates, corona viruses, and bicycle chains. JB is still out of town but should do the Saturday Morning Ride with me. Charlie is signed up to do the Tour de Cure diabetes charity ride in Santa Rosa on May 3, so he's in serious training.
Good February weather - just a little cool and breezy.
FIRST POPPIES OF THE YEAR! It was just a couple weeks ago that I was telling Charlie that I usually see the first poppies near Son of Chainbuster and TODAY - there they were.
On the descent, Charlie did a fishtail going too fast into a corner and pulled a good recovery move to stay upright that Justin said was pretty impressive. I was too far behind to see it, because I don't enjoy the thrill of fast descents the way I used to.
Diablo Shoutout to Deadhead Mike who was killing it in preparation for the Davis Double.
|This guy passed us like he was on record pace - he had all the bling-bling equipment and kit too.|
|But then he stopped at Diablo Ranch and we didn't see him again.|
|POPPIES! The Mountain is a little extra pretty today.|
|Mike - future Davis Double doer.|
