Mt. Tam Delight - Another Modified Version

On Thursday December 28th, we invited Eric A.D. from the Biking Fools of Calistoga to ride Mt. Tam to "pay him back" from that incredible ride he invited us some days before called The Return of the Light.

After dealing with some issues (shoes, pedals, dog fight and even family losses) Amy, Eric S., Pete and I started pedaling with Eric A.D. from the Java Hut parking lot. We headed toward Deer Park to climb Elderidge to the top of Mt. Tam.

Eric A.D. made my life so much easier by writing a really good story of the ride and posting some cool pictures. You should check them out on this link: Biking Fools of Calistoga.

Calistoga: The Return of the Light

On Saturday December 23rd, Eric S., Dolores and Tom, Allie and Michael (the Michiganders) and Celia headed to Calistoga to meet our ride leader Eric A.D. from the Biking Fools of Calistoga, and do one of the most fun, relaxing, gorgeous, technical, challenging rides I have ever done.

The mountains where Eric A.D took us are just as spectacular as the landscape around the Tahoe area. But I am not writing more about this ride, rather I invite you to read Eric A.D.'s story and view his pictures.

The link below will give you the ride stats and a map you can download even on Google Earth! Enjoy it.
