Things didn’t work out quite the way I would have liked; Kevin and I were going to do the ride we tried to do last Sunday… the Redwood City/Santa Cruz loop, heading back up to Skyline via Mtn Charlie Road out of Scotts Valley. Last week we took a wrong turn and detoured up Soquel/San Jose Highway instead, which turned out to be not so bad at all. But time to do what we had planned to do, and today was the day to do it, until, at 6:30am, I get a call from my brother Steve saying there was broken glass at our Los Altos location. So yeah, that sent any idea of a “real” ride out the window!
Fortunately it was only smashed glass, nothing taken, than you modern alarm systems and a police department that responds very quickly!
So instead of any long ride, it was a day for errands and an easy afternoon ride with Becky and Kevin, a short ride out to Portola Valley. 20 miles isn’t much for me or Kevin, but it’s definitely on the challenging side for Becky, but she held up very well. Her new routine of riding to & from work is definitely getting her into shape, something she needs in a few weeks when the two of them spend a week at Disneyworld.
But tomorrow (Monday), we set out to do the ride we were supposed to last week. And then Tuesday, we suffer like dogs on the regular Tuesday morning ride up Kings, having no time to recover. It will be fun!
