thatís actually the end! i always go through the presidio first, because those westerly winds will accelerate even me to 25+ at the end of a long rideÖ but the wind is shielded a bit going through the presidio by the hills/trees.

Actually, my friend wanted to do the Interurban since she said it has been cleared and it was - CLEARED

We used WAYNITA and NOT Juanita! Obviously, the naming was someone's idea of a joke. You wind up on 100th which is a trafficky arterial until the wetland. Then after the wetland boardwalk, we turned right and hit some parkland with a nice trail system that I'd never been on before.

I am trying to remember to call King Cty and ask about Juanita.

Replying to myself - I called King Cty. They would not tell me anything about Juanita Way!

80-spot. a little toasty inland so kept it seabreeze/baybreeze as much as possible.
no way in hades i'll be able to repeat the route during the labor day weekend that is coupled
with a substantial heatwave unless going < 10 mph or risking life and limb more than usual.

not looking good. it'll be close.

64 miles and 4,100 feet, not my best due to a foot issue (fractured it in June) and some knee pain. I have a century next week with a little more elevation.
