Another beautiful, clear, sunny day in the upper 50's here in Northern California. A group of 7 bikes to include yours truly set out from Pleasanton shortly before 11 this morning and made our way into San Jose and onto southbound highway 17 towards Santa Cruz. We exited on Bear Creek Rd and proceeded up into the hills on some sick twisty roads and made a quick stop in Boulder Creek to regroup. We then proceeded on 236 towards Big Basin State Park and snaked along narrow roads through the redwoods until we got to Skyline Blvd. Headed south on Skyline to Alice's Restaurant for some lunch and some bike talk with the many motorcyclists out enjoying the day. We then took Hwy 84 west to the coast and then north to Half Moon Bay, all the while basked in the mid-afternoon sun. A right turn on eastbound Hwy 92 and a quick trip over the San Mateo Bridge, and we were on our way home! All told, approximately 230 miles for the day. Life is GOOD!!!
