A hundred degrees outside...

... and I'm in the locker room about to squirm into my bike shorts and jersey that are still damp from this morning's commute.

Trail closure detour map

This map stapled to the barricade is unreadable. No signs posted on the road showing the detour for a four month closure. Guadalupe River at Blossom Hill Road in San Jose CA.

For those who aren't in this area: here's what they've given us on this trail in the past -- a big sign at the intersection prior to the actual closure, nice big readable map, etc. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bike/5179704825

Set this to music

Autoawesomed group photo before the Green Ways to School 6th Annual Bike the Bay ride. 17 teens biked 50 miles from Santa Cruz to Monterey today, where they'll spend the weekend before biking back on Sunday. For 10 of these students, this is the longest by far that they've biked in their life.

With one exception, these are old donated bikes that the students repaired themselves with training through bike repair class offered at several high schools in SantaCruz County. This trip is self-sagged, too -- there's no van to haul their gear.

Jaime says "This isn't my official advocacy position."

Goofing off at the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition office last night before the San Jose team meeting. Jaime is Planning and Policy Manager for California Walks and she's also, of course, an everyday cyclist.

#waroncars is the silly proposition that cyclists are in a war against cars, when of course all we want are streets that are a little less deadly for the more vulnerable users of our transportation system.

"Woman gives birth, fights off bees, starts wildfire in Northern California"

Crazy story in the LA Times.
A woman fought off bees, accidentally started a fire and survived on apples -- all after giving birth in a lonely stretch of Northern California forest, she told a Bay Area TV station.

Not the weirdest story I every read, but it is up there. Glad all are OK though.

Green Ways To School Bike the Bay Ride

I joined these teens (plus a few adult chaperones) for the first 18 miles of their 50 mile unsupported ride to Monterey, where they spent the weekend. This is by far the longest ride 10 of these teens did.  Most of them are riding donated bikes that they repaired themselves.

With +Tawn Kennedy, who runs the Green Ways To School program in Santa Cruz County.  Learn more at http://www.greenways2school.org/

Kym Lacrosse, Vice President at Trips for Kids in Santa Cruz, also participated and supported this ride.  Learn about Trip For Kids at http://tripsforkidssantacruz.org

Those are sure two very different approaches to a bike on each side of that bike stand.

Check out those snazzy shoes on the cyclist

I didn't notice his shoes until I looked more closely at this photo much later.

Captured during last night's commute in San Jose, CA.

Bragging rights
When I was 14 I wrote a single pass 6502 assembler in Atari BASIC (yes, really). In college, while my peers had modern 286 PCs for their assignments, I had a hand-me-down Heathkit 8086; I rewrote the BIOS so it would be PC compatible enough to run MS-DOS 3.0, Wordstar, Lotus 123, and Borland's Turbo C IDE. Everything since then is a corporate trade secret.

The menu is your basic American Chinese food and the quality can be uneven but Mary is super friendly and all meals are cooked to order. A favorite in 95066.
