Pescadero with Pals
Back on home turf and ready to ride in our beautiful neck of the woods. Today's club ride leader, Miss Marcia, a grand dame, led 10 cyclists from La Honda over to Stage and Highway 1 and back down Stage over to Pescadero.
The temperature was cool but not cold and a welcome relief from the humid weather we've been having in the Bay Area. Lovely smells everywhere, especially the Eucalyptus trees. I should have snapped a photo of the redwoods when we climbed Pescadero Road. A pretty contrast to our Eastern Sierras trip.
Oh boy, a doe sprinted across Pescadero right in front of Miss P. What a sight!
The pigs were adorable, snorting and rubbing against the fence. If only I took a photo of their snouts. A hoot. Made me feel a little bit bad for loving the flavor that bacon imparts in cooking. Oh well. We did enjoy the artichoke and garlic bread, warm and crunchy on the stop in Pescadero. A blissful 31 mile ride with only a tiny struggle on the exposed part of the climb going up Pescadero Road.
