The Road Not Traveled

21 Aug

The plan for third and final week of hill training for Jill’s Ride for Hope: ride from Woodside to the coast and back via the Old La Honda/84/Tunitas loop. At 45 miles and 4500 feet climbing with a 2 mile stretch at 9-10% grade, it’s hard work. Yet it’s one of my favorite routes: two shady, winding climbs through redwoods, interesting rest stops, a stellar descent down Kings and most of all, the satisfaction of knowing you made it to the Pacific.

But after feeling strangely lethargic all day Friday, I was definitely sick on Saturday morning. So I stayed home while my friends rode without me and tried not to be bummed. Lucky for me, Cindy took lots of photos, which is the next best thing to being there. Thanks, Cindy!

    We knew we had to document the trip for you! I think now you’ll have to do the Gran Fondo ( in September – it goes to the coast and returns on Tunitas.
