Mid-Week Rides: Mt Tam, Bolinas, and Pt Reyes Station

Thursday, Jan 24, 2013

The first mid-week ride of 2013 started with breakfast at the Seal Rock Inn in San Francisco. Seven at the breakfast table: Chris, Dick, Marc, Joe, Winnie, Bob, and Tom. Tom stopped by to say hello and have a cup of coffee on Chris. He was otherwise working. Winnie and Joe came for breakfast only. The remaining four riders took off across the Golden Gate bridge with Major WWWobble in the lead.

The route map at the bottom of this page will show you where we went and how we got there. There were plenty of stops for picture taking along the way. Those who missed the ride due to weather made the wrong decision. All the bad weather was in the south (note the pictures looking south from Mt Tam). The north bay had a mixture of light overcast and blue skies with temperatures high enough that I had to ditch the winter gloves and heated liner.

Pictures from Bob, Chris, Dick, Marc, and the “Breakfast Bunch” from Tom in more or less time order. Chris: have you ever set the date/time in your camera?
