April’s ride was sunny and relatively warm and featured the Tied House in Mountain View.
We had a pre-ride snack from Hong Kong Bakery and Cafe. Pork and custard buns and sticky rice.

January’s ride was probably our biggest ride ever. We had almost twice the people we were expecting. It was a surprisingly wet and rainy day, but the scenery and the beer and food afterward made it worth the sogginess.

well-deserved beer and food with a foggy haze due to my rainy camera

Here are photos from October’s ride starting and ending at Triple Rock in Berkeley. The ride started out foggy, cleared up a bit in time to see a gorgeous, albeit slightly foggy view of Oakland and a bit of San Francisco. Then it rained as we returned to the bar. Enjoy.
