After recovering with a day off followed by an easy day, yesterday I went on a longer group ride. It started 11 miles away in Gilroy so I just rode my e-bike to the start. We headed up into the hills East of Gilroy by what was for me a new route. After some serious climbing, we were rewarded with nice views. We then looped around back to the start point. After lunch there, I cruised back home. I was a bit tired by that point so was glad to be able to bump up the assist.
Working Our Way Up a portion of Leavesley Road I’d not been on. Narrow and steep, but fortunately lightly traveled
A ranch at the top of Leavesley. The cows in the distance came over to check us out.
Back to familiar territory. Leavesley joined up with Roop Road and we’re dropping down the far side past the Mendoza ranch entrance to Harvey Bear County park.
