First stop in the city was to freewheel bike shop to get the bolt for the Brooks saddle.
Great shop and great people…
Coyote creek trail fropped us of pretty much in downtown San Jose. We have never really hung out here,so we just tried to find El Camino real.
Coyote creek trail at 7am We stopped at this park to use the restrooms and cook some oatmeal. While we were there we met this gentleman that works for the county. He said he was a cyclist to and was very interested in me and my Popi’s travels.
Then he gave us some great water and Popi some gatorade “From one cyclist to another!” This also happened to be “Bike to work day” in the bay area and we began to se some riders riding to work. We rang our cowbell and cheered them on as they passed our breakfast table.
Side note; If your a bike nerd can you will notice that the Brooks saddle is being held together with cardboard and zip ties.
We had to crash out in the bushes over night and when we woke up at 6am this guy was waterskiing. What a great way to start the day! We watched him zoom back and forth for a while and then got ready to ride…
Coyote creek trail is part of the Bay area ridge trail
Gilroy ca. Garlic capitol of the world!
The smell of garlic was almost overwhelming while we rode thru fields and fields of it!
The temps were in the 80’s with lots of sun
