SUNDAY SCENES: Point Reyes with Team BRITEsport
An 80-mile ride with a rad and super nice team made for a great finale to a long weekend on the bike. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for a recovery week.
SATURDAY SCENES: MT HAMILTON
Mount Hamilton is the tallest mountain overlooking Silicon Valley. The 19-mile road rises over 4,000 feet and and was originally built in 1875 to carry materials and equipment for the anticipation of Lick Observatory. It features 365 curves, one for each day of the year.
The photographs above are from my first time up to the observatory, and definitely won’t be the last.
DRIVESIDE: PEGORETTI RESPONSORIUM
Over the weekend I was lucky enough to have spent a few minutes in the beautiful bicycle boutique that is Above Category in Sausalito. As Chad quickly fine tuned my bike (Thanks Chad! Shifts like a dream now!), I tried my best not to drag my dropped jaw all along their floor due to the amounts of beautiful machines that filled their shop. One of my favorites was this Pegoretti Responsorium — a true work of art that a digital iPhone photograph cannot capture in terms of its’ gorgeousness. Well done, Dario. Well done.
SUNDAY SCENES: SILICON VALLEY 60+
The local South Bay homie @pinoymamba was kind enough to put together a 60+ mile ride around Silicon Valley. A mostly flat day as I get to know the area a little bit better for the time being.
SATURDAY SCENES: SF INAUGURATION RIDE
I landed in the (South) Bay Area last week and will be spending the next few weeks on the west side primarily for work. This was the first big ride I’ve been on since I’ve landed, and probably the first big ride I’ve done in a few months due to the terrible NYC weather conditions.
For my first weekend here I got up early and drove up to San Francisco. First time in SF with a bike, and it was (hella) fun, scenic, and rad. Shouts to the homie Joe for showing me around and up and down the town. So far so good and can’t wait to continue to explore the mountains. Make sure to keep up to date on the IG with #ANGELOGOESWEST.
