My brother Mark and I celebrated the Fourth of July with a 15 mile bicycle ride in Pleasanton. We rode early in the morning while most people were still in bed, so we didn’t have much foot traffic or automobile traffic to contend with.

I captured today’s ride on video with a GoPro camera mounted on my handlebar. I’m sharing a 3.5 minute video that shows selected portions of today’s 15 mile ride.

We started our ride at 6:30 AM and we were finished and back home before 9:00 AM. I’ll spend the rest of the day at home, hoping that idiots with illegal fireworks don’t set my neighborhood ablaze.
