New(er) guy Jason leading the charge

The reality-distortion field in play as we descend 84. But truthfully, this is the actual angle of the bike, since the camera is mounted in a fixed position, perfectly parallel to the handlebars. So whatever angle the photo is "leaning" is in fact the exact angle the bike is leaning. I hope not to take a video that demonstrates what it means to lean just a little bit too much.

Jason isn’t exactly new to the ride; he’d shown up maybe a year or so ago, but looks like me might be seeing him on a more-regular basis. This morning, while everyone else was being a bit lazy, Jason took the lead up Kings, with me trying to keep him in sight. He does bring down the age curve quite a bit at 31, but it’s not such a bad thing for the more “experienced” in our group to believe that we can keep up with the up & coming, even if they’re just playing with us.

You've seen one, you've seen 'em all, yet another West Old LaHonda photo.

Let’s see, who did we have today… Kevin (pilot), Eric, Jason, MarkP, Joe & Karen. The other Kevin was claiming to have had not enough sleep because his dad suggested watching a world war II movie (Downfall) and he had to survive through both school and work afterward. Sigh.

A little bit warmer each day, still bone-dry (I think we’ve only had a couple rides the past few months where there was even a hint of moisture on the roads), and it appears that January, despite the ridiculously-nice weather, remains an “easy” month with nobody really pushing too hard on the climbs.

Life is good.
