My next break spot, a little higher again up Willow Ridge Trail, eating yet another Clif bar, drinking yet more water.

Riding down Monterey Road in south San José.
About five miles south of home, riding through suburban sprawl. It's not pretty, and there's lots of traffic, but it's a flat and efficient ride, without too many traffic signals. And a nice bike lane much of the way.
