Wednesday I worked from home and took the dogs out in the stroller over lunch.  The weather was gorgeous mid day and we had a fabulous walk over to Dolores Park and then up over Liberty Hill.  It came in at 2.81 miles but it had kind of a lot of climbing and that stroller is awful heavy since the dogs discovered honey baked ham.  I got a couple of pics on 20th st at Dolores Park:





Poor Mr. Poe's been having an awful time getting a crown replaced.  Poor baby.  It will hopefully be sorted by Friday.

Tuesday I headed to the Asian Art Museum over lunch to peruse their new contemporary Chinese Art exhibit.  It had a little something for everybody, including people who apparently like giant cloth vaginas:




There's a lot of super fantastic stuff on display.  Loved it:

The glamorous stairway:


I went to the gym for body pump and then I rode on a spin bike for an hour.  Then home for dinner and bed.  Mr. Poe's having a terrible time getting a crown replaced.  I look forward to the day we're all cyborgs and we don't have to go to the dentist anymore.

I've had a slow week recovering from the Lifecycle.  I slept all day Sunday and most the day Monday.  I worked from home on Tuesday and Wednesday and then headed back into the office on Thursday.  Friday night I was back in the gym at a spin class and I felt like I had some energy back.

Saturday was the Different Spokes Jersey ride and we had a fantastic ride out to Tiburon.  The weather held up and it was a fabulous day.  I hadn't been on my bike since the Lifecycle (a whole week) and it felt great to be riding again.  Some pics of the hotness:










After the ride I got cleaned up and hung out at home with Mr. Poe and the dogs.  Great day!

Saturday I had a great ride down into Los Angeles.  I think I was #3 at 9:40.  Beaten by Elliott yet again (bastard).  Things were a little disorganized in Los Angeles and I was a little bitchy.  Note to self:  be so much nicer next year.  I finally got it all sorted and headed home at 1:30.  I had a fun ride home but sadly dinged the rental car coming into my driveway at the very end.  Ah, life.  I had dinner and went to bed.

Here are some pics from Westwood:

Day 6 was a fabulous ride down to Ventura.  My least favorite part of the day is the bit after Pit 2 when everybody's stuck on the 101.  It's incredibly difficult to navigate all the pacelines and I was really happy to see the exit onto Hollister come up.  After that, it was pretty awesome the rest of the way into Ventura.  I was rider #3 in at 12:20.  I went and checked in to the hotel and then got some food.

These are pics from rest stop 2:

The Marriott is a very comfortable hotel.

Thursday was the notorious red dress day and I wore more costume than I ever have this year.  I've avoided too much costume for many years but one of my riders, Janeen gave me a tasteful neglige and felt obliged to wear it.  I also went with some makeup and I liked it but I think the lip should have had more impact so next year if I repeat with it I'm going with a gloss.  There was an optional lobe of 18 miles, 9 miles out to the beach and back, that was fabulous and amazingly, only 72 riders chose to ride it, the rest of them preferring to freeze their asses off at lunch wrapped in mylar blankets.  I don't understand humans.









Some pics from the optional water stop.  I'd changed into a jersey for riding but then put the costume back on for some pics:










Jeremy Yost had the best costumes of the day.  Fabulous.


Loved it!
