Petty nice morning; started cool and ended by warming up nicely. Would have been nice if I’d felt like I had legs, but they were clearly someplace else. Maybe I used them up on Sunday’s ride? I knew it was going to be bad when Marcus showed up, although it was actually the two Kevins setting the pace, while I tried to hold onto JR’s wheel for as long as possible (which wasn’t very long).
There’s a lot of damage around our favorite cycling roads! Amazing how many tress have been pulled down. I mean literally pulled, not cut. So many have been overhanging newly-created cliffs near the edge of the road, and if they’re not removed, they’re going to fall into the roadway, obviously a dangerous scenario. The mud on the road last Sunday has been largely replaced by dirt & dust, although there’s still quite a bit of water flowing across the road in places.
Beautiful views from West Old LaHonda, of course, and yes, that road too has some areas of trouble but in general it’s holding up OK. We’ll see what happens after the next storm rolls through Thursday morning. Coincidentally, right during our ride!
