At least it is a turkey sandwich.
The forecast called for 60 degree weather today so I packed a lunch, got the bike out and took off for a ride. Rode up 9 then took 236 through Big Basin Park, 35 up to La Honda and over to 1. I stopped at Pescadero beach for my Thanksgiving dinner then headed back down to home.
The road through Big Basin is fun. It’s a tiny, unmarked road barely wide enough for two cars.
It was still a bit damp and wet leaves covered some stretches so I didn’t get too wild. I had a couple of heel-scrapes which is always exciting. My pegs are just a little forward of putting my feet right under me so my heels hang lower than the pegs. If I get too far over in a corner my heel drags on the pavement. Wee!

Finally got the bike out today. I don’t think I’ve ridden since I bought the car a few months ago. I pulled it out last weekend but the battery didn’t have enough juice to get the cold engine started so I had to cancel that one. Ended up putting the the battery on a charger and while waiting for that to do its job I replaced some fuses in the car. I have interior lights now! Wee!
I didn’t go far as I only had about an hour in the morning. I’m off to DC and NYC for a week on Sunday so I needed to run errands, clean the apartment, do laundry and pack. Ran up 9 through Felton and then back down to SC. I’m going to try and post some sort of Google Earth track or maybe just a screenshot. We’ll see how that goes. Until then, here’s a pic to make you jealous of the 70+ degree weather here on November 15.
Looking down at Monterey Bay. Monterey is across the water.
