Great Ride today Tom
350 miles + and at least that many smiles. I think I have satisfied my curve cravings for a few days.

Here's a couple of pics

So you did go the river, cool.

I split left at that round-about in Walnut Creek; shortest way to 680.

Looks like a fun ride.

Mt Diablo is a great place to visit for a short period of time. There is so much RF energy coming off that mountain, I bet you'd have glaucoma or something if you stayed a week.

Tom, I'm surprised how dry those hills are after all the rain we have had. Looks like you had fun. Jess and I took a great little ride to Jackson yesterday.

Scott,
The lower hills were green but it's been too cold above 2000 feet where many of the pics were taken. There was still a lot of snow on the shady side of the hills. Give it another week or so and everything will green up.
