Warm and sunny today.

Went for a longer ride today, about 25 miles or so. Just took my time and stopped at every good view point, which was quite often. I have ridden the loop the other way but when you reverse the trails you get to see things you missed the other way for various reasons. For example, a plaque and finger post to commemorate Tom Hulatt who apparentlly finished 3rd in the race in which Roger Bannister ran the mile in under 4 mins :| The bridge is the M1 motorway, there is a bench there if you want to sit and take in the peaceful sound of endless traffic :?

Meet some nice people walking dogs, some very friendly dogs, and helped a couple who were lost. Great ride on a beautiful day. :D

Mark

This is a shot from yersterday's memorial for Fairfax Pat, which was held at the Lake Lagunitas Picnic Grounds on Mt. Tam above Fairfax. Lots of family including Waldo Dave Reddix with camera on right, son Sean in back middle and cycling luminaries Charlie Kelly, Joe Breeze, Bob Burroughs. This is my first post for my buddy Pat: I'm Big Warren fourth from left with baseball hat and was one of Pat's main riding partners for last 20 years or so. These are the folks that rode often (Charlie, Larry Bragman, Gary Leo, Howard Danchik, and Dave Reddix, etc.) or occasionally with Pat. What a life. He touched us all with his smile and his infectious dedication to riding every day as long as he could, which was until last year when he finally met his match, with his family and all his friends by his side.

The Reddix family is putting together a Go Fund Me to get a bench up on the mountain so everyone can come and celebrate Pat.

Thanks to all who have paid their respects in life and beyond to Pat. He thought about and documented the amazing beauty around him during every day spent riding (close to 365 some years) and was an inspiration to all that he crossed on the trials, in Fairfax and Marin (Phil Lesh, Robin Williams) and at home with his family and extended family.


Hi Warren, Thanks for posting. Couldn't agree more. Here's a trip down memory lane from about 7 years ago now. All the best, Woz.

I like the way a bicycle gives one the freedom to travel distances beyond a good walk but also to places inaccessible by any other means of mechanical transport. Today was a case in point. Took a turn along a supposed ‘dead end’ which turned into a little used bridle way. Not a soul to be seen.

I just picked up this Barracuda Dos Equis Team as a birthday present for myself.
The purple bars will be going on my '95 Sunn Vertik 2. And I might part it out, sell the F/F, put the blue parts on my '96 Vertik, and save the red ones for my next project. If I decide to keep it, the bouncy fork will be replaced with a Pace RC31 I have lying around.

The stoke was so high on Sunday I almost made the sun come out - just the usual loops to get the Hot humming for this weekend. It's pretty much there now.

I spent some time this evening changing the tyres, handlebars, and gearing on my '95 Sunn Vertik 2. Then I took a quick ride down to the water to have a beer, and check how well I'd hit the chain line (not just right, but a lot closer than I usually come on the first try).

Warm today, coolish breeze so a great day for a ride.

Just went on a field trip today 8)

Having spent most my years travelling around the country finding and admiring the beautiful places this country has to offer, i had forgotten just how beautiful it is around here. Guess i had just got used to it.

Great ride.

sunny and very warm when out of the breeze.

Went for a quick loop as i was meant to be dog sitting.

When across a few fields, usually i ride around as they are either too muddy or too bumpy but got to see things from different angles today. Visited a Saxon church and stopped at the avenue at Hardwick. The last pic isnt all the way to the end, you can just see my bike in the middle.

Great ride on some great track and on a stunning day.
