Joy of cycling: Let me count the ways

A good way to go to Santa Cruz. $5 one way from San Jose Diridon Station.

A good way to go to Santa Cruz. $5 one way from San Jose Diridon Station.

Today’s ride was nothing special, but here’s what makes cycling fun:

  • Riding across Silicon Valley early on a Sunday morning. Not much traffic.
  • Picking up Coyote Creek Trail on Tully Road and knowing someday it will make it to the Bay.
  • Riding past Hellyer Park Velodrome
  • The crunch of sycamore leaves on a remote section of Coyote Creek Trail
  • Santa Clara County Model Aircraft Skypark
  • Hawks soaring
  • Seeing the windsock at the Metcalf 600 megawatt power plant blowing north
  • Riding up to Anderson Reservoir
  • Watching migrating Canadian geese land in Anderson Reservoir
  • Crossing Hwy 101 on Burnett Avenue with no ramps
  • Riding north on Hale Avenue at 24 mph with a tailwind

Enjoy your ride.
