It really was a great ride. San Antonio Valley is another world from Silicon Valley just on the other side of the mountain. Thousands of acres of ranch-land that was home to a lot more scrub, lizards, snakes and cattle than human inhabitants. I'm pretty sure we rode over 40 miles with literally less than a handful of vehicles passing us. It was well worth the trip, but like BBM, the ride stretched the outer limits of how far and high I want and need to go in a single day.
