I found myself in California without a bike and time to ride. So I “Fredded” up and went out on my buddies size 60 cm (I ride a 56) bike with running shoes, shorts, and a bike pump strapped to my top tube with velcro. I did 50 miles in the foothills next to San Francisco and had a blast. It would have been hard to improve on my total dork look (besides the shoes and shorts, I had a helmet with the visor that was a size too big, freshly shaved legs, no place for food besides the saddle bag which was big enough to get groceries with).
I still had a great time and got to see some fantastic scenery. Pics to follow when I get a good connection.
