Sorry to be a day late on this entry. We did have a nice ride Tuesday morning with Kevin, Kevin, Eric & JR. Maybe somebody else I don’t remember? It was supposed to be quite a bit warmer, and up on Skyline, it was (low 50s) but we still saw mid-30s in Woodside.
Kevin (pilot) took off up the hill and I stayed with him for a while, but dropped off around the park entrance to check up on the “other” Kevin (my son), who wasn’t riding too fast. I was smarter about it this time though; instead of waiting for him to catch up, I just slowed down my pace a bit, allowing him to slowly ride up to me. Otherwise, what happens is that he quickly catches up and then rides on past.
The unusual part of the ride came descending 84 towards West Old LaHonda, when Kevin (not the pilot) went to the front for a while. Kevin never goes to the front there! Obviously he was feeling better.
Frustrating was having such a beautiful day and no way to take photos. The bright yellow Bontrager winter gloves are fantastic at keeping your hands warm, and they’re really flexible… easy for braking and shifting. But they don’t work worth beans on the iPhone’s screen, so I missed the great scenes of the coast.
