On my Sunol loop ride I took in the lowlands, which makes for a fast ride. Fortunately the ride has a lot of diversity as it takes you along and over the bay, through Coyote Hills, along Alameda Creek and over Calaveras Road.
Lots of earth moving continues at Calaveras Road, which remains closed during weekdays, as the new Calaveras Dam is built. It was yet another beautiful day. While climbing Calaveras Road it’s nice to welcome the bay breeze at higher altitudes.
The bald eagle nest is still on the power line tower and one of the proud parents was looking down at the reservoir, probably contemplating the next meal to feed the eaglets.
