So, the end of CLC is closing in fast and with this cold and life in general getting in the way we…well I’ve, been out very little on my bike. We decided to change that today.
Load um up and head um out….yes we loaded the bikes in the Transit and headed North. We had this idea to drive to Wilder Ranch just north of Santa Cruz and bike back to SC and around the park. Should be fun….right?!
Jack is getting really good at packing up the bikes. He was ready in 15 minuets….I was still brushing my teeth.
We’ve both been here a couple of times however we have never been on our bikes together. I’ve been here with my photo club and Jack has been here with his son to ride the trails. The park covers several acres/miles. It was a huge dairy farm in it’s day and has property from the ocean bluffs to the mountain tops and nearly all of it is available to ride or hike. Today the plan is to ride around the immediate housing area and. Then head to Santa Cruz…which is just a few miles south.
This was the first of a few interesting signs we saw on the trails today….watch out for “creatures” on the path. We turned onto this path and immediately went UP! Like 15% up!
So…I stopped part of the way up to take this. It was just after this that we encountered several homeless folks on the trail. One of them was just standing on the trail saying Utah Utah Utah….well that is where we want to go this fall. We think he was our beacon and we now need to follow through for sure.
This was interesting…….The League of American Bicyclists since 1880! Who knew!
All in all it was fun to ride somewhere different for a change……Utah Utah Utah
