back in the saddle

Did a little 16 miler up Tunnel Road to Skyline (Berkeley/Oakland), around to Grizzly Peak, and down Claremont yesterday.  It was perfect on the way up, though we had a bit of a precipitous drop in temperature on the return route when the sun dipped behind Marin.

My CamelBak mysteriously, and annoyingly, started leaking at the start of the ride so I had to dump my water pretty early, but fortunately the folks at the top of the hill are apparently pretty used to being canvassed by non-profits and cyclists alike (Karen asked me “you’re not gonna puke right?  The last guy made a mess” before letting me in and giving me a glass of water and a cookie.)
