I rode out to
on Paradise Dr.
Tiburon is home to small harbors, big views, and some nice bike paths.
On the way back I passed another biker and he sped up. We raced for a couple minutes before I pulled away up a climb.
Later he thanked me for getting his "old legs working". Racing can start randomly and it can be hard to resist.
back in Germany
only the tower remains
Once I matched a stranger pedal for pedal up
. We both suffered, but neither yielded. At the top he thanked me as well.
The desire to drop/not be dropped can be the needed motivation.
One of the greatest bike showdowns ever:
Marco Pantani (pink) v.s. Lance Armstrong

Whole Foods Repair
Whole Foods on Blithedale has a public bike repair stand.
Heather snaps as I lock.
That awkward looking contraption will hold your bike. The numerous metal cables each hold an invaluable tool for bicycle repair. To the right a pump and even water to rinse your bike. NICE.
We're new to Austin, TX based
and skeptical. Sorting produce by distance and this bike repair stand won us over.
