Photos 1978 TO 1982

These images are scanned from photo prints, covering approximately the years 1978 to just before the birth of Fred.  At that time I worked full time in Bay Area machine shops; see the separate album here. In my spare time I was an avid bicyclist.  I bicycled everywhere locally.  I completed several centuries (100-mile rides).  I finished the Davis Double twice, placing 29th out of 700 entrants in 1979.  I finished the Terrible Two once, a course over the worst roads and steepest hills in Marin County.  In 1979 I finished the Highland Triple Century, a ride of 300 miles in 24 hours organized by the Los Angeles Wheelmen.  I also ran both the San Francisco and the Oakland Marathons.
