Sunday I led an ALC ride out to Point Reyes Station.  We had fantastic weather and I think everybody had a great time.  We all missed David, but he's out of the hospital and on the mend.  I hope he's back on his bike soon.  I got some pics of the hotness:














I got home at about 7PM.  And was asleep by 8:30

Saturday I led a Different Spokes ride out to Mount Diablo.  It's a hard climb.  I made it up in an hour and fifteen minutes which I thought was pretty good.  After, we headed down to Danville, Alamo and Lafayette before heading home via Rockridge BART.  I don't ride in the East Bay a lot and it was really fun.  I got some pics:













I headed home and took one of my road bikes to REI.  The other one goes in on Monday.  I'm going to get the components on them reorganized to concentrate all of my favorite stuff on one bike.  Stay tuned.

Monday I had a quiet walk over Russian Hill and down Polk to Civic Center and then SOMA that came in at about 5.8 miles.  I was definitely rattled from the events from the day before and I enjoyed calm and relaxing.  I also enjoyed the kinda creepy easter displays I saw on Polk:



Civic Center


I can't believe this terrible building is finally coming down at 6th and Howard.  It's been an eyesore since I moved to San Francisco and has held that neighborhood back for at least that long.  Great news:


I'm not exactly sure where this fabulous building is SOMA.  But I approve of it:




I headed home for lunch and then went to a spin class after work.  Then I headed home for bed.  Because I needed that.

Sunday I led a ALC training ride out to Lucas Valley.  The weather was drizzly in the morning and we had a very serious accident in San Rafael.  My friend David fell in downtown San Rafael and went to the hospital with cracked ribs and a head injury.  Thankfully, he's gonna be OK but it was a very stressful day.  I got a bunch of pics at the start of the ride:







I had a quiet ride through China Camp as I rode to catch up with the others.  It's so beautiful there:



I headed home at the end of the day and went to bed.  Long day.

Saturday I led an awesome Different Spokes ride down the peninsula to Stanford and then over to Fremont BART.  We'd thought about Half Moon Bay but the weather at the coast looked really wet so we stayed a little inland and had an fantastic day.  We started the day with donuts, as one does:




Crystal Springs Reservoir:







Mr. Poe's prize winnin' wisteria:




Hello gorgeous:


I hadn't printed out the route sheets for the ride the next day so we headed down to my office to do that and then headed to a restaurant Mr. Criss recommended called Pazzia on 3rd.  Mr. Poe had lamb that he liked so much that it made him cry a little and then he dreamt about it all night.  We got a view of the new Museum of Modern Art extension.  I can't wait for this museum to open.  It's gonna be super fantastic:


We headed home and I went to bed.  Fabulous day.
