Annadel State Park has dried out nicely, everything is in bloom and it's beautiful! Right now is the short window of riding between muddy and dusty. It doesn't last long, so get out there!

Extremely windy, overcast, and cold in Pleasanton this morning. Riding with two Megatowers, and a third guy with a Bronson with his Megatower frame on the way. Got in nearly 5k' elevation by noon which was cool.


I love a raw bike with no logos.

How do you like the Megatower vs the Yeti I think you said you were riding at SO?
I'm on a Sentinel, and haven't ridden the Megatower, so cannot really say.

But I would choose the Megatower over it (if they ever sell a frame only option) because of price, availability at local shops, no infinity link (*less maintenance), and SC free bearings.

EDT Shuttle. 30 miles mostly singletrack AND downhill:

The day begins. A little confusing at start due to construction.

A few downed trees but nothing surprising and mostly ride-aroundable.

Basically the first half is class 1 but with nice singletrack running mostly parallel. Good fun!

There are still a few water features to avoid.

30 miles, mostly singletrack, and here's the elevation profile:

We both thought it was a bad ass trail. Definitely a good time to hit it if you've ever wanted to do it!

Wow, I was not aware of SC bearings for life program until reading this and doing a little searching. That's awesome!

Henry Coe State Park

Until early afternoon it was cold, dense fog, and windy. And the day never really warmed up. I do good in these conditions and got in a long ride.





fc zips by me on his Henry Coe ebike Superbloom ride:



The Superbloom was a bust...the flowers closed-up up in the fog.

Mustang Peak, my target for the day:

I happened to do this just this week. Filled out the web form on Tuesday and the package was on my doorstep when I got home from my ride yesterday.

We just drove two cars. I am not sure if anyone local does it professionally but a post here in advance would probably net you a hook up and riding partner.

Yeah, it's a perk that most people don't take advantage of. Either because they don't work on their own bike, or are too lazy to work on it until it's broken. But having fresh bearings will make a huge difference in keeping your bike feeling good.
