Why we ride #487

Passing the torch. OK, it didn’t feel like that as it happened last weekend; I hung with my son for the first mile up Old LaHonda, hit a steep part, and as I slowed down he accelerated. By the time I got to the top he’d had over two minutes to rest. Several years ago I looked forward to this happening. Today? I’m thinking revenge. Time to coax whatever I can out of this body, while I can! –Mike–

It was a great run while it lasted; one of the best! A solid month without rain, giving us some of the best winter rides ever. Now it's time to get out the rain bike and check to make sure there's still life left in the brake pads, and run down all your wet-weather gear, because it's going to get... wet. Good thing my new Contour cycling video camera is waterproof!
