If you had an 18" rear tire I could help.
Thanks,
I call them tmrw.

I have second set of wheels with stock sizes, but it's going to get offroad tires.

You'll show me the way to Port Costa? This bike is massive and wrong turns slash u-turns are major problems.


Edit; Google shows 24 to Fish Ranch to Grizzly, sound about right?

I don't think I'm going to make it up to the wall in time tonight. Maybe Eric or Zak or someone will lead the ride? Hopefully I'll see you all at the warehouse.

I'll be there, I can find my way out to the warehouse.
LB, fish ranch to grizzly works fine, but you will hit traffic before fish ranch. . . not sure if that bothers you on that bike. If you wanted you could take San Pablo dam road to the wildcat/bear creek road junction, and meet us on the bear creek side at 5-10 minutes before 6. Then we'll go bear creek to alhambra to franklin canyon to McEwen road out to port costa.

I've got a little stack of paper plates I'm bringing from home, if anyone else has some spare plates/cups to bring for our coffee and dinner, don't be shy. Thanks,

I'll see you all at the Warehouse this evening (not going by the Wall). I'm bringing a baguette, manchego cheese and a bit of prosciutto; as well as a knife and small cutting board.

Pretty strong winds here in SF all day today. Woodschick is going to have a wild evening on the Bay.

Damn, is that all I am to you, Guy? A photographer? I see how it is...

I'll be bringing a few small plates, forks and some homemade Mac salad.
