Climbin' and shootin'

I'm going to try and do a two-man time trial in July but I've been pretty out-of-shape with my recent two-and-a-half-week trip to Japan. I've decided to punish myself by doing all the climbs that previously I've been too lazy or wimpy to do in the past. In the past week or so I've managed to add Woodside-Skyline, Old La Holda, Alpine, and Altamont to my list of now-conquered climbs. The nice thing about most of these climbs is that I can descend right down into Menlo Park where I work. One of these days I'm going to finally all of Page Mill to my list. One of these days.

I've also got a new camera that I'm hoping will make the cycling photography easier. It's a Canon 30D, which is a pretty good upgrade from my old Rebel 300D. It can take shots much more rapidly than the Rebel and has a much better focusing system, so I'm looking forward to testing it out at the Pescadero Road Race and Burlingame Criterium coming up at the end of this month.
