I took today off just for me. I headed over to the coast to ride the along Half Moon Bay and its delightful Coastal Trail. I’ve shown it to you before, but like all special places it’s different every time.
One thing I wanted to accomplish was to buy a senior state park limited use pass, which I did at Half Moon Bay State Beach. For $20 I can go to most of the state parks except during the height of the summer. That usually works fine for me. I have no trouble getting my money’s worth. So that was my economic support for this ride.
Despite this beautiful place, I wasn’t feeling it today. I got out there and enjoyed the views and the nip in the air from the offshore fog, but I was tired and cranky and really wished I was on a long hike instead. Halfway through I remembered I was going to drive south to Pescadero after this ride. That perked me up and had me pedaling with more energy.
So it became a Surf and Turf Day. Half Moon Bay was the surf part. See Ride 7 for the Turf part.
