Ummm, or not... Smiley, Tony and I had such a great ride on such a beautiful Marin day that I decided to snap a few shots and do a little writing in the spirit of sharing. And yes, for those of you who are still trapped in the snow, or sleet or by the malls, I am sorry...



Big news of the ride is that Tony just picked up his new Pinarello Dogma. It is an amazing looking bike, the black/white scheme is my favorite and after Tony demolished us on the long, technical Mt. Tam descents, I know it's an amazing ride as well. In fact, I just ordered my very own 53cm and we'll have a detailed account of building it up here...



Start of the ride, heading up Marion Ave, this is about 4min from the shop and to get to the top of Mt. Tam takes apprx. 50min to an hour. Smiley on the left on his Pinarello Prince and Tony on the new Dogma. Oh, this was supposed to be a SLOW ride today, I was smoked, Tony hasn't ridden in a bit and Smiley was into slow as well. Right here we were already going too fast for my tired legs! This was to be a common theme today, thanks guys!



Once a PRO, always a PRO. Smiley gets a flat and after both Tony and I fail to give up a wheel Craig waits for the team car... once he comes back to reality and the present, he changes tubes real quick and we start the 10min descent to Stinson Beach...



Sun, Pacific Ocean off to our left, green fields, cows... these roads do not suck. Smiley here working on holding a straight line while the wind blows his 68's all over the place....



Shhhhhh! Up by the bird Sanctuary near Bolinas. But we didn't tell you that. Where is Bolinas anyway?


Did I already say that these roads don't suck?? Tony and I have already shed the arm warmers, first time of the year for me. Above Category is right down the hill from here, or I guess over a few more of these rollers and then down the hill...



One of the few rollers (I think this is the 3rd bitch, not sure though) that someone was not trying to rip the legs off the other two... but Smiley is keeping an eye out just to make sure...



Just to prove I was actually on the ride! Rode the BMC Pro Machine and had the first ride on the Campagnolo Hyperon One's. Will have a report on this bike, and the BMC Racemaster and a bunch of other great parts soon. Thanks for taking a sec to read, hope you enjoyed and see you out there!
