Indeed, that was me. If it's any consolation, it took me about an hour to get there from Pleasanton. Niles Canyon Road was especially cold and windy. I actually took the photo about an hour and a half before I saw you all. I ended up going down to San Jose to eat, and I saw you on my way back home.

I don't want to seem greedy--especially since I'm new here--however, since it's been two weeks and no one else has posted.....

Good job Mr Zip!
I had no idea where that was, my guess is San Jose but I always get lost there.

A gust of wind from the weekend storm, apparently. It was mentioned on the news.
As for the new tag, I was afraid it might be easy with the name of the establishment visible
but since there is someone on the board with that name I thought it was sorta funny.
So, a clue: it's in the tri-valley area, a part of sunny ole California.

hmmm, found it, but don't think I'll be riding that far until....next month maybe.

unless this weekend is just gorgeous and I have no other plans.

not even sure if I can get there via non-freeway, which is my preference

Are we slipping too far south again? I thought the reason for separating from the Bay Area Photo Tag was so that East/North Bayers could play.

Sorry, I'm in Fremont and I guess I was focusing on the East rather than the North part of the subject line.
I found this on the way back from Anthony's pick in Dublin. I already had a turn recently so I can
surrender my choice to someone else if you like. Maybe Patrick since both he and Anthony found my last
pick but Anthony posted a half hour sooner.

I was trying to go for both on Thursday but when I left for the my appointment in SF it was raining and I didn't fancy a 100+ trip in the rain. Took a bus and the weather turned out beautiful. Wasted day. Oh well - I may go now.

Hey Shauno, hope you had a great ride!

i was riding around in Napa, but doing errands, etc. it was a good day for a ride, but kinda windy. I had friends bicycling on the west side of napa and thought i might go and buzz them, but never made it there.

Hook up with some of the Napa club next time, we'll join you
