ALC Day on the ride

Here are some photos from the the AIDS LifeCycle NorCal day on the ride:

I took this picture for two reasons.  1) I thought it’d look cool with the guy kneeling and talking on the phone.  It didn’t turn out as cool as I’d thought.  2) Old school Trek Y-foil road frame.

Ahhh!  got a flat on the Nicasio Valley Rd climb.

 

 

 

 

Not a good bike day for me though I felt fine riding.  Later in the day my rear wheel got pretty messed up from a pothole-filled descent.  Eventually the rim so out of true that it was rubbing against the brake pads.  I had to stop and do a little work on the side of the road.

We cut through a more residential part of Petaluma – it was a nice little section of road en route to lunch

 

 

 

 

Lunch at the park.  Turkey + havarti sandwiches from Boudin.

 

We did about 65 miles in all.  I felt a bit tired towards the end was was climbing well otherwise.  It was fun to see a bunch of other riders out (~400 total?)  and to see all of the volunteers for the event.
