For those about to Rock

For our second ride of the weekend we headed out to our favorite collection of rocks in Rockville Hills Park, which had been closed because of damage from the heavy rains. It turned out to be a very session-oriented ride; we spent over an hour in the quarry, working on the traverse, the chutes, and a couple of impressive lines from the very top.

Peak experience

We're three weeks from a desert weekend, so it's time to double up on our rides. Saturday we started out with a relatively mellow ride in Joaquin Miller and Redwood. The forecast had been for rain, and things were wet in the early morning, but it started to clear up just as we got on the trail, and turned out to be a beautiful day for riding.

YIMBY MUni

Colin invited us over to his backyard for a MUni ride on Mt. Sutro in SF. It isn't an epic ride, but all MUni is fun, and it's hard to beat for location. (You can walk to beer afterwards.)

Getting some education

Bevan had been telling me about this trail called General Ed for a while, and I finally got a chance to join in on a ride there. We had a good crew, with Campbell, Yu, and Colin joining us on a beautiful day up in the hills. Things were still wet from recent rains but our weather was clear and cold.

Oversized chairlift

On weekends the AC Transit 339 line runs to Chabot Space and Science Center via Fruitvale and Dimond. That happens to be right at the top of prime MUni territory, so Dragon and I hatched a plan to head up there and ride back to my place, taking advantage of the potential energy. It was wet and occasionally raining, so the dilettantes were off the trails.

Fossing in Rockville

Our friend John invited us up towards the Central Valley for a ride, and it had been forever since we'd been to Rockville. So we met John, Ashley, and Jason (the new organizer of the Sacramento meet-up) in the middle and hit up one of our favorite parks. Or rather, Rockville hit us.
