Finally snowed. Was raining and 55 yesterday, hit 17 overnight with a couple inches of snow on top of that.

Made it to work and back on some well worn re-fuse tires with no drama despite the thick layers of rumbly ice coating everything. Except the bike path, which was plowed by 830 this morning.

Gonna try and get the POS ice bike running tonight.

McLaren is p-good. Definitely a lot of older Chinese folks milling around but I find they avoid steeper, rockier trails and like you said, really good at sharing the trail. It's still the best park for CX training I've found in SF, given how crowded most of GG park is.

Cliched ride that I've done a million times, but the view never gets old. No rain clouds in sight means no snow at Tahoe, but the great biking weather is a nice consolation.

What a view! Is the ride like MUP paved paths or what?

Hawk hill itself is mostly road shoulder, but it's surprisingly empty that time of day (evening). There are a lot of gravel trails behind it though.

You really need to true your front wheel - disaster waiting to happen, that.

First and possibley the last TT of the season. It hadn't rained for over a month, until I headed home... Roman-candelled that one. A distinct absence of watts.

More wonderful than you can believe it
