Back from the ride, showered and rested. Rousted Gary Fisher at 7:00 and rode with him and his GF Sheila. Both of them hammered me. Out on the trail, ran into Jacquie Phelan and Joe Breeze and posed for photos.
It felt like old times, sliding into a corner on Pine Mountain with Fisher cackling and pushing me hard. At least I could keep up on the descents, since he was riding a hardtail and I had the cush.
Let's see if I can load these photos in the right order.
Fisher celebrates with a brew at the top of Pine Mountain.
Riders bunch up at the top of the Pine Mountain descent, which is one of the best in Marin County, but condemns you to a tough climb out of the canyon.
I couldn't believe how many "mechanicals" I passed on my way down Pine Mountain. I heard one tire blow, and saw a lot more that had. On one corner I found three guys working on bikes.
Fisher and Sheila, me and Joe Breeze (with club jerseys).
