Have a great, safe ride...

Been up since 6 getting ready but I've been feeling a cold coming on for 2 days & this morning I just have to face the fact that I'm now sick as a dog.
Sorry to miss this one, I was looking forward to the route & crab. Have a safe ride. Hope to make the next one...

Went for a nice ride on Thursday, finally got to stretch out my riding legs for the first time in a long while:


Up near Calaveras Reservoir...


Still more along Calaveras...


Last two up in Mt Diablo, though I wasn't expecting the ten dollar cost to ride the roads...

Hi All,

Had a great day for Crab run to Half Moon Bay.

Met up with riders:
JustPaul and Jill
BigNastyBRP and Wendy
Bartet990
Luckett
T O Double D
Ian408

We started from Alices after a warm up coffee - it was a bit chilly on top of the hill.


Then we headed out and enjoyed the twisties in the Santa Cruz mountains and ended up taking abreak at Stage Road and La Honda for a group shot and a cactus - hey why not - this is California in winter.





It had little orange bulbs growing out of it.

Then we made our way out on several twisty roads North to Half Moon Bay and Princeton Seafood for SEAFOOD and beer!!!



Crazy Bert was going to eat the crab with shell included!!
Arrgh Billy!!



Bert, Wendy, and Luckett


Bart and a tasty brew


Our table, Bart was out looking for the missing Pacifico!


Jill, Paul and Ian chowin down.

After the feast we went to the ocean shore and cast our gaze on the Mavericks Surfing area. They were having the surfing competitions this weekend but we did not see them. It was awesome weather so we just enjoyed the view.



After that is was a nice easy ride up Tunitas Creek and down King's Mountain Road towards home.
A Grand Day was had by All!

I enjoyed meeting you all and thanks for coming out.
We will do it again.

Mike Z

Thanks for calling the ride and glad I could meet you guys for lunch!

Here's what Mavericks looks like from the bluff...to give you an idea, that was taken with about a 700mm lens (500mm plus teleconverter).



The place next to Princeton Seafood, Ketch Dianne, is a great breakfast spot.

No Mavericks contest, just a ceremonial "paddle out" to mark the start of the contest window from now until March. They're waiting for the biggest of the killer big stuff...

Changed out my tire/tube so I can ride again. New chain should be here soon and the bike will be in top shape again.
