Hunter and i were biking the other day parallel to the caldecott tunnel / 24, and were horrified to see a mole, midday, just rolling over and over again down the hill/pavement.
We think maybe a huge rainstorm drove it out and it got lost trying to not drown on the road.
they are ALL HANDS, no limbs!
Poor thing was made to dig/swim only, not walk/run.
one of my most favorite shots for the whole trip!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU donors to my AIDS LifeCycle8 bikeride!
I took about 500 photos myself during the seven days of riding. Hunter also took about that many photos, too. I will make a combined album soon and edit a video as well and put links to them on this site.
Well, Hunter and I made it home safe and sound last night!
We finished just before the course formally closed, yesterday (saturday) around 3pm.
Well, we are all waiting to roll after CA Highway Patrol.
Shut down the course due to early rain.
Not sure if we’ll get cleared to ride.
So far so good.
We made it safe and dry until now.
Today started light rain with wet tent.
It’s let up over breakfast mostly so we are hoping hoping for a break today and crossing our fingers.
We finished day three’s ride today. I an feeling very strong still and enjoying the unbelievably pretty inland agricultural “salad bowl” of CA and then the dryer wide open grasslands too. The weather has been quite good – not too hot and not too cool. The colder mornings are offset by the rather unseasonly humidity.
Hunter and Tracey finish up their season of being
tracey bike accident -- walks away scraped but OK
Training Ride Leaders
and share a little of what they’ve learned
A steel cruiser bike roared blindly out of a blind drive and ran into me. The impact “taco-ed” (crumpled) my wheel and pitched me over the handle bars and the 2nd bike. I hit the pavement, but managed to not break anything or hit my head.
This is it!
The big cheese!
Join us to the Dark Side and complete your training!!
This is a great and pretty country classic!
We tour the mostly flat canyons first east and then south from Orinda.
