The Tour of California is now in the Bay Area with their Time Trial in San Jose today, Mt. Diablo tomorrow, and SF to Santa Rosa Sunday!  Exciting day planned Sunday for the M2 crowd as we escape the city early to beat the peloton to Santa Rosa, then enjoy some libations to watch the finish.  On course aid station will be in Tomales at Dillon Beach Rd./1st Street, to help everyone take on the final push to Santa Rosa.

The bridge will not be fully closed in the morning, just reduced lanes, so don’t worry if you are driving to the start, or to watch the race.  Just remember if you are leaving the city later, Bay to Breakers is going on.

This past weekend saw M2 himself out on the roads taking on the Berkeley Hills Road Race with many other members of the studio.  Our training group’s Virgilio and Alessandra are making a home on the podium on their climbs up the cycling ranks, as well as some great rookie road performances from Mike V and Vincent.

Saturday Run – San Bruno Mtn – 10.5 miles
Switching things up a little, and saving on tolls too!  We’ll head south to Brisbane where we will take on another of the Bay Area’s peaks, San Bruno Mountain for the first time.  Trails are very nice on the mountain and there are a few good places to eat in the little village if you’ve never been in the valley in the shadow of the hills.  Very hard to get lost as you can see where we started from the entire time.  If you end up in Daly City or Colma by accident, you just added another big climb so enjoy it!
