On the subject of rides, we called a last-minute Norcal vintage ride in the Livermore area. There were six of us in all and we rode an easy, mostly flat 30 miles through the Livermore wine country. Riders were Bob Freitas on his Cirque award-winning Hetchins, Steve on his Mercian, Jon Spangler on his Eisentraut, Linda on her Serotta, Greg Davis on his early '60s Bianchi and myself on an '82 Zunow. Great ride, but COLD! We wrapped things up by chowing down on excellent Mexican fare at Tequila's Taqueria.
