Back to West Old LaHonda being fully-closed again

On yesterday’s ride, we were running quite late because Kevin wasn’t feeling particularly frisky (not to say I was…), so we skipped out on the West Old LaHonda loop. Turned out to be a good thing because the road closure (where the slide took out about half of the road’s width) is finally being repaired and, as of yesterday apparently, it’s now completely fenced off. They’ve had “closed road” signs up for some time, so likely nothing to tell you it’s any different from before, so we would have ridden 3/4 of the way back up towards Skyline before being turned around. We would have been REALLY late had we done that!

So going forward, guess we’re back to what we had to do previously when the road was completely closed. Add in some loops that involve the dead-end roads to the west of Skyline. But first, tomorrow morning, we’ll ride as far as the fenced-off road closure to get some photos, so we can send out an email letting people know about it. Pictures tend to get more attention than words. 🙂

Sunday’s ride- A repeat of the ride I did two weeks ago, looping down through Los Altos and then Mt Eden, returning through Los Gatos and stopping at the usual Peet’s in Los Altos for coffee and food. I felt like crap at the start but after 15 miles or so began to loosen up and feel better. By the end I was doing pretty well. Got to figure out how to feel that way at the start! What’s the secret? Really long warm ups?
