Here are some photos from the the AIDS LifeCycle NorCal day on the ride:
Gathering in Mike’s Bike’s in San Rafael prior to the start
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.
Riders getting ready to roll out
and they’re off.. people were wearing bunny ears for Easter
1st rest stop: Nicasio Valley Cheese Company
peanut butter and jelly in graham crackers by Pierre foods
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.
