wed. aug 5 - bayway exploration - civilized 7:30 departure - Philz!

checking out the "official" redwood city bike route, in blue. usually we go green.

stickering up the route in SF

start of the bay trail south of the airport

some dirt involved, cool

why not ride on the beach?

this is the "blue line" in the image


explored some pretty cool dirt/paved trails along the ol' bayway today, and since I had the 'cross bike, there were some excursions into the squishy parts of the way. may be making a recommendation to the executive committee to make the south-of-airport start to the bay trail the default route, rather than the kind of lame S. Airport Rd., which is narrow and trafficky.

as for the "official" route immediately preceding the BTN (see previous email), it's loose & narrow dirt, pretty fun but not great.

also did extensive route-stickering until I ran out, which hopefully is noticeable for the first 15 miles of the ride.

see attached for some photo documentation.
