East Bay Dirt Classic

I got wind of a brand new mountain/cross bike event, the East Bay Dirt Classic, sponsored by the Crocker 510 bike club. This was a pretty epic ride, with 25- and 45- mile versions. We got a group together to do the 25-mile version, which was no walk in the park, boasting over 3000' of climbing, mostly on the steep fire roads of Redwood and Anthony Chabot parks. Me, Yu and Dragon joined up, and the two wheelers were suitably impressed.

PedalFest

We participated again in Bike East Bay's PedalFest event, running learn to ride workshops, demonstrating flatland, street, and trials, and entering the amphibious race. Got a lot of love from the crowd!

Blue Monday

Chris and I had Monday off (Chris because it’s summer, me because consulting works that way), and were looking for...

Doubling it up in Napa

We had a warm but not ridiculously hot day for a two-sporter up at Napa Skyline. There was a beautiful light cloud cover and breeze which took the edge off what would have been a really hot day for MUni. Unlike last time, nobody broke their unicycle, and we had a great time on the Upper Skyline rock gardens and the Manzanita Trail, which we haven't been back to since the 2016 Tubbs Fire.

East Bay JAM

We had a great time at the East Bay JAM. The weather was perfect for MUni, and we wound up doing two rides. In the morning we did a family ride with five riders, including a 9-year-old girl and her dad from Hawaii, and an afternoon ride with eight riders. Plus a bunch of people tried to learn to ride in the meadow. Fun times!

Pop in from G

G was in town, and we had a couple of hours to hit the trails, which are way more fun here than in Durham, North Carolina. We didn't have time for much, but played around a little bit with some different loops, especially the downhill on the north fork of Big Trees. Anyone who's in town, hit us up; any excuse for a ride!
