The 10-ton's bike driver is also ready to go to Henry Coe.
Well, sort of... The 35-mile ride to Henry Coe is never the easiest because the big hills are on the last 10 miles of the ride.
Although I ride about 125 miles a week commuting to work by bike, it's mostly on flat ground. My first real hill ride of the summer was just two weekends ago, when I rode up to Mount Hamilton and back (50 miles round trip, up to 4200 feet and back).
I had developed water under my right kneecap during my Death Valley bicycle trip in late April and gave it most of the summer to recuperate.
It's an early day for me; I've managed to leave the house by noon.
