Heading out to the Apple Thursday morning. Won't be back for a week and a half.
Going back to visit Mrs Kaitai's parents and get a little slice of my own personal family history, too.
Good times Good times.
So, don't look for me, I won't be here. Probably... maybe I'm sure I can get some computer time.
But, meanwhile, I got to sneak away this morning from packing and such for one last ride.
Took the Reno out for my normal -well, my old normal- Saturday ride. Back when 15 miles meant something.
Today I took a medium -for me- 17.5 mile cruise. So, 17.5 today, 13.5 off-road miles on Monday, 35 on Saturday. It's been a good week.
Today, a little climbing. A LOT of wind. And too much climbing into the wind.
When you see this, it's never a good sign.
I've done -and shot- this ride so many times, I needed a theme. Ah! The rocks off of Pedro Point. I used to rent a house with a room mate on Pedro Point. Sadly, I don't remember much of it anymore. Ah, to be young.
Three shots of the rocks. I love the 10AM light.
I found this nifty piece of -I assume- electrical tape work months ago. Didn't have my camera. it's still there. Today I do. Elsewhere in Pacifica is one taped off to look like a peace sign. Rock On!
As mentioned sometime before, there's an "easy" climb back and a harder climb back. I've been pretty much doing the harder one and today was no exception. It was windy enough today that I had to forego my snack at the beach because I was literally getting sand blasted. Man, that hurts. So, I rode on and eventually headed west to the hard climb. I got hit by a head wind that had me pedalling and not moving for a couple of seconds. That was weird. Unfortunately, the beginning -the steepest part- of the climb was right into that wind. Like it's not hard enough? Well, I was already there, was I gonna give up and quit? No way. I just kept on keeping on and kept my HR down under doctor approved limits. Finishing that climb felt GREAT.
All in all, a nice way to go out. See ya all around.
