Yes the sign is in Tilden. I ride through Tilden on my way to UC Berkeley. (Hint!!!)
Wonderful view - hope you get a clear day for your ride.

Hooray! We made it to page 4.

Who said there was no interest in a North/East bay scootertag! Took us two months to get thru page 3! As Cricket once said "the towel is still here" or something like that...

looks like a nice day, the Easter bunny has come and gone, think I'll ride down and take a look around.

It's not too far from that spot and there is a great view of the bay. Oh geez, there I go with the hints.

Go get it.

Dang diggity dang!! took it about 2 pm Sunday but didn't have a way to post it til this am.

Good job, again, cricket!

I had a great ride finding it, as I was pretty clueless, mapless, and couldn't even remember what it looked like!

Did 100 mile roundtrip (spent night in Orinda) to tag it!!

Now I feel greedy. You worked much harder for it than I did.

Since you tagged it before me, why don't you post the next one? I'm not going to be able to do any riding apart from my commute in the next few days. We need to keep this going in order to catch up to the Bay Area tag game (which looks like it died).

Cricket, mighty generous of you! Let's just leave it open to whoever puts a pic up next. as i rode home I was kicking myself for not grabbing a pic or two somewhere to post up next, so I don't have anything ready either.

Shauno, no shame allowed!

I was out on Sunday but didn't have any idea where shauno's pic was so I just went for a ride through the hills.
I didn't take any pictures, though, so I can't add anything either. I think I almost had a chance to meet a couple
of MVers. About 12:30, I was on E. Castro Valley bl on the way to Palomares rd and I saw a black and a red Vespa
several cars ahead. I was working my way up to see who it might be and say hi but they moved across to the left
turn lane and turned onto Crow Canyon rd and I got caught at the light.
I was sorry to have missed out but my smile soon returned as I rode the winding road through the hills.

Altho I rode 520 miles this past weekend, not a single yard was ridden in the north or east bay, and altho I shot over 200 pics, they were all down in and around San Luis Obispo at the Rides of March.

now i know I can do the highway riding, so no more excuses to not go for a tag. I'll be looking for a shot soon.

Cricket: a fiddler? what's your story and the concert info?? I used to be a fiddler, now only a wannabe, altho I often think of digging it out and playing again.

Nice- - good to see the taste of lime in action.
I have no idea which winery (?) that is, so hopefully some one else will get there shortly.

So are we supposed to take a picture in front of any vineyard or does it need to be that one in particular? If it's the latter, how in the world are we supposed to find that one among the 10,000+ vineyards in the area?

Leave early and make a day of it. Preferably on a weekday when traffic won't be quite so bad. What a wonderful way of spending a day off. Wish I could do it but am tied up all weekend and can't take any time off work for a while.

Notice the roof in the vineyard?? That's kind of a clue on how to distinguish it from all the other vineyards!

I rode thru the valley today with my head swiveling left and right and didn't see it, but I wasn't trying real hard as I didn't have my camera on me.

And - I actually managed to get some other pics on the way home.

The clue in the sign isn't very clear, so if the tag's not taken in a couple of days, I'll drop some hints.

Look forward to the new spot.
