Ride Reports/Mileage  - 
 
Absolutely stunning northern California summer morning today-- clear and sunny at sunrise (usually foggy here on the coast), mild, ocean was flat as Kansas, low tides so the beaches looked like their own continents, etc. As I conclude the ride at work and am locking up, a passerby says "such a beautiful morning for a ride," to which I reply "any morning on a bike is a beautiful morning." She harrumpfs and says "well, some are better than others," so I give her a nod and ponder how much non-cyclists are missing, or, conversely, how people who only like to be out in the fresh air etc. when it's nice and sunny are missing out on some much-needed exercise for the body and soul.

Had some copper river salmon the other night. That was really good.

Chilly 41 deg F cold snap here in mid June, so I broke out the woolie for one more day this (late) spring.

I love my commuter bike-- stout enough for most single track, but still not a dog on the road.

My commute is pretty amazing, but these two recent rides take the cake. Actually, the one from SF to Marin was an old commute, still my fav for the bridge and city views, pristine extreme NorCal coast notwithstanding.

Nothing like leaving late for work to push some limits. This was one of my fastest commutes, including a 19.2 mph avg over a private 12.8 mi Strava segment representing the main, mostly unimpeded part of my inbound route. #rule10

Rode most of my old commute from SF to College of Marin, then I got totally lost trying to solo Mt Tam on some super steep and gutted fire roads. It was still a great day to be on the bike.

I even had kewl Bear Republic socks on, so the ride is dedicated to +Jim Williams​​. Hope you're doing great Daddee Socks.

Story
Introduction
I live in coastal Humboldt County, Northern California near the border with Oregon, and I enjoy traveling throughout California, Latin America, and Western Europe, especially Spain. I use Google+ primarily to post photos of my local area and travels, and to follow photographers and other interesting folks who post theirs.  I have no formal training in photography, but enjoy spending time walking this world with a camera in hand.  I hope you enjoy my photos.
Bragging rights
I bike commute over 5000 miles per year, mostly along a 14 mi (one-way) section of the Pacific Coast Bike Route that includes the Hammond Trail in Humboldt Co., CA.
