I'm gonna be back in the bay for memorial day weekend and am planning on a couple long peninsula road rides on Sat & Sun if anyone wants to join.

This on Sat, with as many people as will come from the FB event I made:
https://www.strava.com/routes/8605671

And then lower key this on Sunday:
https://www.strava.com/routes/8782858

Some regroups after longer climbs but I expect the pace to be fairly quick

Not sure why I thought Endor was new. Maybe because I saw some equipment up there when I rode it.

BabbyMatt, those rides look dope. But I won't pretend that I can hang. Relatedly, can Strava give you turn-by-turn directions on a pre-mapped route? Is there any app that can do this?

Strava cannot, afaik, but you can supposedly export the file to a 'compatible device' for turn-by-turn. Probably a garmin 8xx, as my 520 only does overlay directions and not proper turn by turn.

I heard they're building a new gravity trail up there, maybe you saw the equipment from that? Or from the massive repairs after they s winter.

So, I should have looked at my calendar before posting. I'm out of the country end of this month and beginning of next. Maybe mid-late September? September 16th good for anyone? Thinking a ride through the Oakland/Berkeley Hills if ya'lls got road bikes. Trails in the same locale if ya'lls got fat tires. Or maybe both?

Might be down. I'm turning 30 that weekend, though, so I might just be drunk somewhere, realistically.

Hi/Bye Bay area. It's been a fun little adventure in your airport. Great weather for it today.

You're lucky. I cant count the number of times I've been delayed at or going to SFO because of fog.

After 10 days of 90+ degrees, taking the train three times between international and terminal 2 was quite refreshing.

Bay Area, I will be in you for two weeks starting Wednesday.

Naturally, this bike is partially tarck's fault.

I'll be there, leaving in a bit to help set up. I'm riding my bullit. Not like that will help identify me as I won't be riding around but something to look out for.

That crash in the men's race was really bad. Know anything about the guys that got hurt? I saw the FD hosing blood off the sidewalk. Fixed Gear crits are so stupid. There was a crash in the women's race that looked identical, except with fewer people there wasn't the huge pileup.

The one on alabama right before the drop down the hill? One of my good friends was in it, he's responsive and jovial (dude could lose a leg and he'd still try to laugh it off). I think he's still in the hospital for observation because he had a really bad head injury last year resulting in a mild stroke. Hopefully he's okay, gonna call his wife to check.

Sam is okay! Mild concussion and some scrapes and bruises. Bed rest for a few days but overall he's fine.

fuck man I was super worried. Really wasn't trying to think about it too hard because obviously there's nothing to be done about it.

Glad your buds ok.
How does one come close to loosing a leg in a bike pileup?

Oh, no that's not what I meant. Not like "it's possible" but as in, he's the type of dude that no matter what happened he would laugh and give you a high five.
