Week End Update
Filed under: rides, photos
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 8:50 am

Just as I should’a been going to bed last night, I noticed a bit of commotion on the ASI site, and saw that they had uploaded the top-o-Nicasio climb photos (and maybe more) from Saturday’s Marin Century.  Driven by the desire to confirm that I continue to show up on film, I rooted through a few pages, finding a fellow in a green SF Randonneurs jersey, the very upbeat and nice guy I later chatted with too-briefly who was wearing a Rivendell seersucker and motoring along on his Rans, and another fellow riding what looks to be an Atlantis.


Followed by someone who just wasn’t smart enough to bring gears:

If you want to prowl through the archives to find you or your friends, it starts here.

In other news, I thought I felt better after this ride than the brevet in January, even going out for a short and easy spin on Sunday, followed by easy commutes Monday and Tuesday.  But, by Tuesday evening, my ears were plugging up and I felt uniformally nasty and gutted on Wednesday.  Kinda suffered along and passed out with a nap late Thursday, which seemed to help things dramatically.  Definitely felt less sore and joint-crackly than January, but still have to remember to, um, what’s that called?, ah “sleep”, yeah, that’s it… Probably rode the endorphin bus a little long on Saturday and Sunday nights, forging ahead rather than pulling the cord and stepping off to Slumberville.  Live and learn.

    Sounds rather like what happened to me this week. My metabolism had to be brought back to density: no more waking at 5, stuffing my face and getting on the bike by 6:30, three days in a row. Time to wake at a more reasonable hour and enjoy a slower breakfast before riding a measly five miles to work. Ah, sweet recovery… Cheers –B

    Yep. Recovery is a good thing. Luckily, my body is smart enough to slap me upside the head to remind me to try it… ;^) — J

    Hey–even though I wouldn’t know anybody, I took a quick look at the pictures. Had to laugh about the guy holding his hand out in the “no pictures, please” gesture. Was he not doing the century, or is he undercover?

    OK, I’m clueless–between the helmet and the shades, I can’t figure out who that is.
  7. The Cyclofiend Says:
    Lanky guy seen often seen around the north bay… has a bike company named after him… ;^)

    Oh, THAT GF. I told you I was clueless. Too bad he has to buy somebody else’s road bike….
