I took a day off from work today to join my wife on the “Bakery Ride” out of Danville. It is a brisk paced Wednesday morning group ride with not a bakery in site. It was really cold but a good sized group turned up. The pace was pretty steady until we passed the Pleasanton Mall on Foothill and then the speed ramped up. It was pretty steady on Collier Canyon but with an icy cold headwind. I made the mistake of going to the front and regretted it near the top. The run in on Highland and Tassajara was also pretty quick but hampered by strong headwinds.
