Birthday ride today, on the tandem, with a friend from Wolfpack's & Vega Vixen's neck of the woods. Just what I wanted!

On one's birthday, one should get what one wants. just sayin'...

Almost hit by a school bus on commute home. Jeez... It was turning right onto my road while I went straight. I have no idea how it didn't see me: everybody else at the stop sign did. A school bus!!

Rode into work this AM. Windy even then. Out of the north, so when I rode west, I had a nice cross-wind with gusts. Still windy this afternoon. If bad, I may just ride straight home (6-miles) instead of extending it 2 hours.

Beautiful day for a ride today. I felt good, too -- maybe there's something to this "ride less, enjoy more" stuff I hear people talking about...

Feelin' guilty right now: I only did about 35-miles (SFVBC Sunday ride + to/from start). For the past couple weeks, AJ & I have been riding with some friends out of Moorpark, logging ~70 miles or so. But after yesterday's Simi Ride, my legs were fried, so I stayed short. Group upped the pace on Valley Vista along south side of SFV, so that hurt a bit. But it helped open up my legs and I'm sure tomorrow I'll be feeling fine.

Hey, Mods, here's some spam for you.

No, not the kind you want when Hurricane Sandy hits...

Lovely day for a ride with a small group -- 8 of us double-pacelining and having a blast. The biggest hill I hit was the I-505 overpass.

The sprint toward the end is what did me in. I was redlining when I caught the two guys who started it -- damn, that was fun!

Squeezed in a quick ride this morning as the next storm approached. Beat the wind and the rain.

And it really smelled autumnal out there...love that.

Post-rain ride this morning, short & fast, punctuated by the scent of wet eucalyptus, featuring 8 hot air balloons spread out all over. My route had me chasing them down and it was interesting.
