Diablo and training for the Knoxville Double

Diablo Junction with Joyce

Tricia and I rode with Joyce on Saturday. Northgate to the Diablo Junction, down the South Gate and out through Reliez Station Road in Lafayette and Pleasant Hill. Here's a photo of Joyce because she hasn't shown up here lately, and the clouds were just grand.

I'd ridden the junction with LanceOldStrong the week before, and also done a series of five hill repeats up Somersville Rd to Black Diamond Mines on Thursday. I'm getting in my climbing, but I think I'm getting slower instead of stronger. Here's hoping I'm ready for Knoxville. My goal there: Finish alive. That's all, just finish.

    Spectacular photo!! The clouds on Sunday were magnificent.

  2. That *IS* a spectacular photo.

    It's a Flickr link... is that why it shows up so big?

  3. DS: Beats me. How big does it show up? It looks OK on my computer.

    Not only is the photo spectacular, but your subject looks focused and fast! Thanks again, Curtis. 'twas a wonderful surprise at LMC on Thursday. I'm proud to have some of your artwork at my house.
