This was the first time I rode Bluey (my new-to-me Terry Road Bike) on this route. I felt the advantages right away. I was able to keep closer to Lynn on the long inclines. (She usually kicks my ass on the hills.)
We didn’t take the most direct route down south, but It’s always lovely to ride along the beach. Skyline is not too crazy, though a car honked at me to cut me off and rush to a red light. Typical, but not the road rage that ensued. If I was alone I would have gone off on the driver. Sawyer Trail has amazing views and wild life. My iPhone pic doesn’t give it justice.
Canada Rd. is closed to traffic on Sundays for Bicycle Sundays. We got to take up the whole lane and even ride side by side. Great for chatting or at least listening when I couldn’t climb a hill and talk at the same time.
We ended up in Woodside, a small rich looking town, where we sat down to eat fancy sandwiches and fries!
After dinner we made it to Atherton Caltrain Station. According to Lynn, Atherton is one of the most wealthy cities in the state. She also convinced me I’d be arrested if I tried to pop a squat at the Caltrain Station, so I searched around and found an open library near by and used the facilities there.
I made it home satisfyingly tired after a detour via BART to a party at “The Big Pink House” and parting with Lynn.
Next week, we’re going north!
