The San Francisco Bay Area is fortunate to have so many parks, open space preserves, and public lands, and in Sonoma County we have our fair share. The newest is Tolay Lake Regional Park in the southern part of the county. It officially opened for daily access less than two weeks ago.
My ace support crew and I undertook a recon mission on foot on one of the trails at Tolay last week, and I immediately recognized its potential for the Ogre. Fortunately, bikes are allowed.
Today I spent a few hours pedaling up and down the ridges, around the ponds, and across bumpy pastures in unseasonably warm November weather.
