San jose attraction…Not much in San jose.
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.
So after breakfast we are riding along the traqil and as we are crossing this bridge we look down and see this huge pig! Popi screamed down “Hey Pig!!” But he pig did not move… Popi was thinking that this pig had gotten hit by a car of something and that we were gonna get some free bacon!!
So we crept down by the pig and thank goodness popi was smart enough to put this tree between us and the pig,cause all of a sudden this pig jumps up and charges right over at us!! OMG,so Popi jumps up into the tree and the pig is circling the tree snorting and screaming at us when this Older guy came by and started screaming at the pig. The pig ran away squealing.
All this happened in less then 15 seconds,so Popi and me were all adrenaline at this point,we jumped out of the tree and ran back to the trail…
The man said that he had seen the pig earlier and thought it was dead too. Later when we looked down from the bridge again the pig was in fact dead or close to it. Pretty sure it had been hit by a car before we got there.. R.I.P Mr pig.
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
Finally after a while we came to Anderson damn and the Coyote creek trail! What a gem! No cars and very little bike traffic. We had the place to ourselves!
