Riding in the East Bay Hills

Being new to the Bay Area, and to Box Dog, I have been really excited about all of the mixed terrain riding available. I live in Oakland, so I have been spending a few hours every morning before work exploring in some of the east bay regional parks, particularly in Joaquin Miller, Redwood, and Chabot. This morning my neighbor Fred and I did a nice loop up along the Westridge trail in Redwood Park, and then followed Skyline up to Sibley Volcanic Preserve before returning back down into Oakland. It was a really beautiful morning, much clearer up there than it has been recently, and I was able to snap some photos along the way.
