Mt. Diablo

I spun 20 miles along the Contra Costa Canal Trail to get to Mt. Diablo.

In particular, I need to carry increasingly heavy classroom materials.

Hoo Koo E Koo

Sickness and neck injury has kept me off my mountain bike for 3 weeks.

Perfect riding conditions today begged for a long ride, but I just tested the neck and legs.
I cant wait to get back out again later this week!

I've had a blast teaching at elementary schools this week.

Last night we had another meeting about HWY 101 "improvements."

local residents don't want more highway

The biggest bomb was when Diane Furst (vice mayor Corte Madera) revealed that the accident data was padded with fake incidents.

My favorite speaker was Valerie Pitts, who asked for safe crossing for kids.
Larkspur-Corte Madera School District Superintendent Valerie Pitts was among those pleading for a safe and separate pedestrian crossing. "Safety is my No. 1 job. That begins when students leave home and travel to school," she said.  

After hours of public meeting I finished the night with the 2 best bike scenes!
