Yesterday my group rode up into the hills Southwest of Morgan Hill, then south to cross Hecker pass highway, where we picked up the scenic bike trail that goes all the way to the Gilroy Sports Complex. We returned to Morgan Hill via Santa Teresa boulevard against a headwind, which was welcome because it was cool and the day was heating up. I was able to give some of the riders in the back a draft on my recumbent. This is a nice route, with beautiful scenery, both on Burchell road and along the bike path.
Climbing Day Road. This was challenging on a recumbent. I made sure I got a good head start on the flats leading up to the climb, but most of the group still caught and passed me.
Regrouping at the end of Day Road at the entrance to Kirigin Cellars
Starting down Burchell road
A very wooded area further down Burchell road provided welcome shade
On the bike path with with the foothills of the Gavilan mountains in the distance and Uvas Creek preserve on our right. These pictures were all taken with my little action camera in photo mode. Not bad for a litlle 4×6 cm box.
