Old La Honda Road Tunitas Creek loop

Thanks to Glenn, Dan and Steve, Tricia and I got to ride a classic Bay Area loop this weekend. Not only was there an ocean view, there were redwoods, narrow roads and climbing. Lots of climbing. 5800 feet in 52 miles, which is pretty epic for us this early in the year.

I have video, but I realized after I shot it that a front mounted camera gives good butt shots of my fellow riders and not much else. So, no video.

I also had reinforced the idea that the more climbing there is the fewer photos I shoot. Plus, gloves and my iPhone don't play well together. Hence, guest photographers are saving the day.

Once again, Glenn was too fast to show up in any photos. Except when he hung back to climb the steep parts of Tunitas Creek with us. But then I was too busy not falling over to drag out my camera and shoot him. Next time, I promise. I'm going to have to make some special device to capture him.

  1. That was a good loop with some cool descents.
