Hello,
Sorry for the absence, time is an issue...
Anyway, a weekend ago, I was in a ride with a group, like last summer, with the B-Zones RC from town...here are some pictures, maybe this week I will finish the edit of video (4 hours of raw material).
The ride was OK, from my point of view was quite interesting considering that some roads were new for me. The group is mixed, they don't make differences according to the bike, for them is enough just to ride together.
This the trip:
B-Zones Clubhouse către B-Zones Clubhouse - Google Maps
And the pictures...

Here local we have a ride that has become famous. Mulholland Highway, locally known as The Snake. I guess it is ranked by some among the best rides in the US. I rode it on Sunday, which as you know happened to be Easter Sunday. The video below is highlights of the ride. It got a little long, sorry about that, but even after removing all the stuff that made me look bad, there was still a lot of footage that I was fond of.

Regarding The Snake - my opinions are these. It's an okay road, but not all that challenging. Some of the connecting roads however, are really twisty. Overall, I can think of a dozen local rides that are just as good. Weekends, especially holidays, might not be the best time to ride it. I think I will go back on a weekday in the autumn. The weather was beautiful. Could not have been better.

Hi,
Maybe in the future you will consider also to upload and the long version of the edited video..., I also have some extra long videos, I know that not all the viewers have enough time to watch, but never say never...

Y'all are posting these great rides. I'm jealous! This time of year in Houston we have daily fog till about 9am. Ride into work sucks, but ride home has been nice. Am I the only one riding in fog like this?

If I have to be somewhere I will ride in anything. I have crossed the Bay bridge in a tropical storm, Trish needed to see her patient when she was still working. Now I just don't need to be in that many places as bad.
