Sorry I missed you UmneyD. I rode up to the top, didn't see any heavenly creatures, turned around, and rode down a little way where I could see more of the road and a couple of my club mates were hanging out.
Yeah, it was cold alright. I rode the commuter bike and carried one pannier. I had my UnDee shirt, jersey, vest, wind jacket, sweatshirt, and winter gloves. Most of me was fine but my fingers were numb. (I've developed bad circulation in my fingers when it's cold in the past couple of years.)
A just before the peloton arrived, a herd of cattle started trotting from up on the knoll where they were grazing down toward the road like they knew there was something going on and they wanted to get a better view. As soon as the main bunch had passed, they all turned around and headed back up the hill where they were originally. Too funny!
After the broom wagon came by, a group of us decided to go around the back way and drop down into Milpitas via Calaveras Rd.
