Since I did a Zwift race on Friday and the C&V ride yesterday, I decided today would be shorter than my usual Sunday rides. It was chilly and foggy when I started (Bay Area standards), so I wore a jacket, since yesterday I found the vest wholly inadequate at times. But then it cleared up, so I ended up with my jersey underneath the jacket thoroughly sodden. I decided to take a few detours, ride a couple roads I either don't ride, or always ride in the other direction. One of these I had long ago decided not to ride in one direction because it was such a slog. Lighter, fitter me found it no bother at all, so it's back on the list of rideables. One road I'd never been on, so I thought I'd try it. I came up to a precipitous drop off, which went I know now where, so I turned around and figured I'd preview it on Strava before trying it IRL. On a flat map, the road looks pretty straight, and of course the elevation doesn't show.

Anyway, here's a pic of a vista so nice I had to stop and take a pic, which I rarely do. Caught the fog burning off over Crystal Springs Lake...
