Velodiva and I went for a ride on singles today - 45 miles. When we started it was 50 degrees and partly cloudy. When we finished it was 53 degrees, sunny and windy. We climbed Kings Mountain 1760 vertical feet 6.6% grade and after our descent (brrrr) we headed out to our favorite coffee shop. On the way back, we came to a corner which is a stopping point for cyclists. On the corner and at a hitching post were two horses with their owners across the street at the deli.
We were in Woodside, CA which consists of large lots and horse farms. We see many people on horseback but this was the first time we saw two horses tied up as they might have been 100 years ago. Here are a couple of photos I took with my mobile phone.
I love the gas station in the background.
