Road Ride Sunday 12/11 .. 11:30am

Road ride starting from my house in Lafayette. 41 mile loop. Brisk pace.

Lafayett, Orinda, Moraga, Oakland (Skyline) and back. It's a great loop with plenty of up, down, and flat. Yippee!!

PM me if you need directions to my crib. If you want coffee let me know ahead of time and I can arrange

What is a 'brisk' pace? Never been a road rider. Well, never been much of a serious rider at all (though I have always enjoyed it).

I think I should try it out, but I only have my mountain bike (no suspension) to ride. Unless I try to fix the ancient road bike that is half my size that sits in the garage

Clues on pace.

"Brisk" is a subjective measure. If you show up and everyone is skinny, with big calves and shaved legs, brisk means painful. If your the thinnist guy in the pack, brisk might not be so bad. Brisk usually means not a whole lot of "stop and jabber" sessions. If you are off the pace, someone will usually hang back and make sure you catch all the important turns. And most rides have a cut out early option that you should politely take. Most cyclists(except for the rare euro poseur cycling snob) are very cool with new riders joining the pack. Please be prepared with a pump and flat kit. Air in your tires and water and a powerbar. Your mtn bike with some smooth road oriented tires should work great. Especially considering most rides around here eventually run in to a good size hill. The mtn gears will come in handy.

Might give it a shot in the future. Most of my riding ends up on road, this is my foriegn port transportation. I always carry a tool kit with patches in my Camel-Bak, only missing the pump. Of course, I have yet to get a flat, I have thick tires, thick tubes, and plastic guards in the tires

Better knock on wood

Last time I said that, I put a rock through the carcass of my tire (out at Northstar). The NoTubes anti-flat solution wasn't enough to seal it, I had to slime it.

I'd be interested in a South Bay ride. Somthing not too difficult to start out with, I haven't been on the bike for several weeks now. If anyones interested in somthing like that, PM or post here and hopefully we can get somthing organized.

I ended up putting in 46 miles. Was shooting for 50 but my quads informed that they were gonna cramp soon and I headed for home which luckily was only a few mile from where I was. Oh well, still a great, dry ride in late December. Hmmmm, try that in NY Oyyyy Veeeyyy!!

Hey Roxy, Looks like rain for at least a few days but I'll give you a heads up next time I'm thinkin' about headin' out. I only live half a mile from bart so you could even ride out here. I've got some pretty good rides (loops) ranging anywhere from 16, hard hilly miles to 50+.

I've been a pretty hard core bicyclist for,,, forever.

I have a bitchin Ciocc Mocba 80. I don't ride it. Too scary. Like riding my R6 NAKED, With no HP.

I ride my Marin Mt Vision alot.

You guys are brave. Cagers are stupid. But you knew that.

On the other hand, Mt hamilton is pretty deserted...
