It's been too long since I tackled the skinny tough trails of Tamarancho.
I get entranced by ocean views and forget the pleasing dark aroma of the pine woods.
roots rocks and a few bridges
I've been getting a little too "Strava'd" but it's really fun to compete against hundreds online.
Tamarancho flow trail sneak peak: not open yet!
I continued up Pine Mountain and set my fastest time coming down its rocky slopes.
staying off the brakes requires a lot of concentration

The American Automobile Association continues to lobby against alternative transportation.
- AAA successfully lobbied to veto the 3-Feet to pass cyclists law in CA twice.
- AAA said reducing mandatory parking requirements in DC was "dangerous"
AAA offers bike service, they replace your bike with a car.

I did a new loop on our hill, I love riding out the door and onto dirt in a few minutes.
Lots of happy people out today enjoying a sunny Sunday in our backyard.
nasturtiums are one of my favorites, edible too!

I got pulled over by two police officers on foot along the Corte Madera Creek bike path. They suggested that riding with 2 bikes was suspicious of bike theft and asked for identification.
While I cooperated and thanked them for their interests in preventing bike theft, riding with 2 bikes is not a crime and hardly unusual in places where people bike frequently for transportation. It's easier than it looks.
facial hair, two bikes, clearly stolen
Seriously? A bike is the worst get-away vehicle for a bike thief...
one of those days when everybody seems to hate you...
One of the many reasons why bikers don't need to be taxed is that anyone who pays general taxes already pays for the roads. Car taxes cover only half the price, yet cars do nearly all the damage.

Today I used the over-crossing that connects Coleman Elementary to the rest of San Rafael.
these highways divide as much as they connect
After work I got out for an hour on the rocky hills of Ring Mountain.
I always keep an eye out for bike art at the schools!
