We did Bailey/Buffalo Hill,Croy,Llagas/Willow Springs and 50 miles. We encountered headwinds upon the return from Morgan Hill along Hale Avenue. I managed to finish (of course last) in 4 hr. 30 min. Yay. Oh, the photo -- snapped while climbing Croy.

There I was, pretending to be Tinker Bell, as I climbed Henry Coe, occasionally imagining I was the Sugar Plum Fairy, The Black Swan, and oh heck, let's just throw in Mary Poppins, too, when a sexy cyclist (are there any other kind in my blog post?) sped past me and said, "Nice bike." The Boyfriend, unable to join us because he's on a mtn. biking trip, will tell you, "That's code, Missy." Oooh, flirty, I love a good flirty.
As my pedals churned away, about 1 1/2 miles to the top, I met the sexy cyclist once again as he was coming down. He said, "Nice job." Hmm, I had yet to make it to the top. Did I mention that I love a good flirty. The BF is shaking his head. I did try to push myself in short spurts as I still feel a bit sluggish. I forgot about that last nasty bit towards the top. My heart rate did flutter a bit, maybe on account of said sexy cyclist....
My bike is such a poseur. 28 miles. Another fun club ride.

The BF, away on another continent, called just as I arrived home.
Our route included: Old SC Highway, Soquel SJ, Rodeo Gulch, Mtn View, Branciforte, Granite Creek, Glen Canyon, Bluebonnet, Bean Creek, Glenwood, and Mountain Charlie. Exhausting but another super ride thanks to Miss P and Mr. G. We did around 51 miles, and 4600 ft of climbing.

I love this ride because of the variety of scenery. Guess what this is.
Yes, strawberries! Sweet, delicious and juicy just like me.
And this, what do you suppose this is? It's near Corralitos.
A cabbage patch! I love boiled cabbage with mustard and butter. I like coleslaw, too.
