Today was the first time I rode with Toby on a pretty scary road. Pleasant’s Valley Road is no joke. Cars come zipping down and there is practically no shoulder for most of the way. So, today was a big day as I took Toby down the leg that we’ll be riding on our big weekend trip coming up at the end of this month.
In just a few weeks, I will load Kip up with everything we need for a weekend getaway. Our destination: Napa Bothe State Park. Just about 50 miles and 1 mountain away is a beautiful state park that is remarkably empty this time of year… and cheap — when you bike in, the site is only $6/night. Deal!
There’s only one thing left… the mountain. Gotta do a ride that tests my ability to climb up a mountain with 40 pounds of Toby behind me. So, in a few days we will tackle Wykoff, one of the steep climbs around our ‘hood.
Biking is so much fun!!
