    Stanford Ave - MP - Calaveras Rd - MP - Stanford Ave

    18 miles / 6000 ft climb today up and over MP to Calaveras road and back. Now soaking in cold tub. Ahhhhhhhh..... Took the Ohlone 50K "way" up to the peak, then down to high-five the gate at Calaveras Road. Retraced steps FTW....

    Up and Over Black Mountain

    Had a nice hike/run today from Rhus Ridge, up and over Black Mountain and down the Indian Creek Trail a bit. Distance was 14 miles, 5000 feet total ascent, and took 2h50m.

    Marina's Birthday

    We had a couple of parties for Marina's birthday. Nani came over in the morning with lunch and a little cake and we opened family presents. Then in the afternoon we went to Petroglyph in Willow Glen for pottery, painting, and pizza!... (29 photos)

    Shuttle Flyby

    I got off the train this morning in Mountain View and rode my bike to Moffett Field to watch the Space Shuttle fly over. Marina and I were going to do this, but then it was delayed and delayed into impracticality. My original plan today was to just watch ...

    Mission Peak MTB

    Rode up Mission Peak today with Sean Kohler. I was expecting it to be harder than it was, but it was still a doozie. We did about 10 miles total, 2700 feet elevation gain. The first stretch up the peak was 2.8 miles and 1750 feet gain -- unrelentingly steep. From there we went around the back of the peak and up to Mt. Allison, then came back and went down the Grove Trail past the farmhouse (sweet technical section!) and rejoined the main trail. I'm really happy we did it!

    Ohlone Sprint

    Ohlone == 53:05 ==> MP == 33:48 ==> Ohlone. Starting to track my downhill times. A big old tarantula (6" legspan) crossed the path on the way up. First time I've seen one alive.

    PDC Thunderhill: T9 Off

    A combination of brain fade and lack of grip contribute to going straight off the top of T9. Luckily it's a pretty boring video. Sorry for the bumpy ride, Jim! ...

    PDC Thunderhill: Best Laps

    A couple of laps from my second session out, just after some time with Jim Basset in the car giving me some pointers. The first lap is a 2:08.0, the second is 2:08.1. Top speed at the end of the straight is just under 120mph. The fastest turn is T8 with ...

    Kennedy Trail Sunride

    Sean convinced me that waking up at 5am on Saturday to go for a ride was a good idea. Had a great time again with him going up Kennedy Trail, this time at sunrise. We started out when it was barely light enough to see. It was really gorgeous when we got up above the cloud layer...

    Labor Day Bike Day

    We celebrated Labor today with some bicycle-oriented garage projects, and I went for a ride with Sean Kohler, after 12 years away from a mountain bike.

    Dog Agility Contest

    Our friends Deanna and Nathan and their dogs compete in dog agility contests. We drove down to Prunedale today to see them do their stuff. They're getting ready to go to nationals this year in Denver. There were some impressive dogs and handlers there today!

    Sushi!

    We made one of our favorites for dinner tonight. It's super easy, especially since you can prep pretty much everything way in advance. Surprise new favorite ingredients: fried garlic slices, shiitakes sautéed in rice vinegar and soy sauce, and crushed w... (2 photos)

    Rhus Ridge to Black Mountain

    I did a 14 mile run/hike this morning, starting from the Rhus Ridge parking lot, then up and over Black Mountain. It was really foggy at the top and on the west side of the mountain, but then it started clearing on my way back. 4500 total vertical feet, ... (3 photos)

    Hellyer Park Velodrome

    Most local folks don't know that there is a velodrome inside of a public park in San Jose! Three nights a week in the summer, there are races at the Hellyer Park Velodrome. There are beginner lessons on Saturday mornings too. We met up with the Kohler... (5 photos)
