Not So “Normal” Ride

Times have sure changed. We used to ride our “Normal” 30 mi down to Stillwater Cove nearly every day. Yesterday was the first time for us in months……what has happened? For one thing we don’t ride together that much anymore 😂 That’s my doing as I seem to be busy doing other things and I stopped riding that long because of an issue with my arm. It seems to be a little better, thank heavens. So, when Jack suggested we ride to PB I was up for it.

It was pretty uneventful, thankfully. My ribs are not 100%. But nearly, so I’m good with no excitement. We are still short on our bridge shots. I’m submitting this one even though it isn’t technically a bridge. It’s a pier.

We have been having such fog and gloom it was really strange to have clear skies in Pebble Beach….but we’ll take it. By the time we were back in Monterey it was still foggy!

Today it’s a bridge!
My favorite view on this ride. Just after coming down from the Cypress Golf Course.

    Good to see you are getting back out there — from what Ive seen of this post and many of your others, a beautiful and interesting place to ride!

      It is indeed beautiful! We often say “and we live here”! So beautiful you don’t realize how hard your are working. Most rides have around 1,000-1,200ft of elevation. It goes from 0-10% several times a ride.

    Glad you escaped the marine layer and are healing. Ribs are notorious for taking forever. My dad has always built homemade sleds. Some years ago he built one that ended up being super-fast. He was taking it for a test spin at a local sledding hill. As he got toward the bottom of the hill he realized he was going way, way too fast to stop before he hit the pavement in the plowed parking lot. So he bailed in a high-speed tumble. He was 64 at the time (you can’t take away the boy inside the man on a sledding hill). He broke a couple ribs and had some bad bruising and painful coughing for two years. He says they are still tender at times, to this day. I hope your recovery is quicker and more complete!
