Diablo. Still uphill.

Our friend Joyce rides lots, so she thinks we should too. She talked me into doing the Diablo loop: Up the North Gate, Down the South, back through Danville and Walnut Creek. 30 miles that starts with about a 2000 foot climb. I haven't done it since the 80s. It's still steep. My goal today was to survive, and I did. Thanks Joyce! (Joyce, single: possibly available for the highly qualified; For a good climb call...)
Where's my wife you ask? Apparently having a 16-year-old daughter going to the prom involves a lot more Mom than it did when I was in school, so she did pink stuff today. I'm in hiding.
Thanks also to Diablo Scott's Bike Blog for providing a bit of inspriation as well!


  1. Greetings and thanks for the blog link and guest blog post.

    Nice format to this site, I'll be checking in. I need motivation as well.

    Congratulations on the weight loss, new enthusiasm, and new bike.

  2. Hi CCC! It's nice that Joyce rides bikes, but how's her second serve? How's her topspin? One hopes she lobs and has passing shots.

    Joyce plays a mean game of ping pong and appreciates Wimbledon (w/a 'd') in July and the clay courts of Roland Garros, but other than that, tennis involves too much running.
    Her drop shots, however, are deadly.
