Morning training 5am -7am on hesperian blvd

Its not really an invite but after the primavera ride some of the fellow siclistas told me they saw me on my morning rides. By standing at a bus stop or in their car.

SO why do I ride in the morining----before 7am. Its much safer. Why? little to NO cars.

Aftee 7am the cars get impatient and it gets less enjoyable to ride and more like working to stay alive.

I like to ride the first half of the halo halo ride. some days i do less some days more.

There are about a 5-10 riders i see in the these early hours and I do invite you to use the roads at these times and encourage to use the whole lane.

FOR safety i recommend:

  • have good headlight..at least $100.00 with a battery pack
  • at least two rear lights. the super flash by planet bike is bad ass around $27.00
  • at yellow vest or yellow or orange clothing. Vest: $7.00 at walmart
  • and after a while the cars will get to know you and your route.

So say hey siclista or hi when you see me on hesperian, cherry, paso padre, newark blvd, or coyote hils.

Rides I'd like to do b4 5/23/2009

- Century along the coast. From Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz.
- Climb Mount Hamilton from the back side.

Both of these rides needs some preparation and training so I am planning to do a recon/training ride of the coast. Maybe HMB to Bonny Doon for a 75 miles out and back ride or a shorter 50-60miles. Another option is to ride and have lunch to where El Capitan and the Pres had their ice cream last time we did the coastal century with my BikeForum buddies. I'm thinking of doing this recon this Sunday then do the full century the next weekend or after the Primavera. Let me know if you guys are up to it.

The training ride for the Mt Ham ride will be from Pleasanton up Mines Road to the Junction. To be followed by the full climb to Mt Ham.
or... we can do the full 116m loop.
... to be continued
