Saturday looked like another nice day to hit the road. Us Woodside junkies decided to mix it up a bit and hit the East bay. I've never ridden here and I've been hearing good things about it. I got a taste of it climbing Sierra road during the Tour of California. Spring time in this area is ideal as it is a little drier than the west hills and the normally dry hills are unusually green.

Present in the ride are Ed (Mohair_Chair), Derek, Tom(Rensho), Phil, Mike(Plim), Gus, Nelson. Free wool socks for the comers btw!


Calaveras road is absolutely majestic in the spring. The road was free of cars, the hills are green and the clouds put on a good show.









We then tackle the tight Palomeras canyon and the nice little climb

Another run at the King of the Mountains at Calaveras and we call it a good day.

So there it is. A break between storms is good for 67 miles and 4600 feet. New friends and new roads make this a great day.

Wow, great shots

Man, looks beautiful. We rode in the Pardee Party in Amador County this weekend. It was overwhelming green (and a little wet to say the least, but no rain). My poor camera was overwhelmed by the bright foliage I think. You got some great pics of those rider buddies of yours. Very nice.
