The Bay Area recumbent group I occasionally ride with did a ride down at my end so I joined them yesterday. They rode the Coyote Creek Trail from South San Jose to Morgan Hill for a lunch stop, then rode back. I rode up to meet them on a different route so I wouldn’t traverse the same route twice. This ended up being a total of 41 miles. It was an enjoyable ride on a nice morning. As always, it was fun hanging out with fellow riders of odd vehicles, and seeing the looks on the faces of passersby as we paraded past.
Meeting Point in the parking lot of the Tree of Life Cycle path. This is in the Basking ridge neighborhood of Southeast San Jose, which is up on a rise on the east side so has lovely views to the West
