Heck yea Hecker Pass!!

Day 2: Santa Clara to Moss Landing, Ca - 63.7mi (102.5)

Another day under our belts. I am so pooped. About 40 miles into our ride we had to cross Mount Madonna via Hecker Pass. I felt like I had no energy by the time we got to the beginning but managed to make it to the top with a little help from my hubby (aka my pack mule).

We finally managed to pull into Moss Landing after filling our bellies with some Mexican food. Our gracious hosts Aaron and Annie had towels waiting and a roaring fire. They were great company and have a very cute and playful cat named Iggy.

Can't keep my eyes open one more second...goodnight!

And we're off!!

Day 1: Emeryville to Santa Clara, Ca - 58.03mi (93.4k)

We are off to a great start. We rode along the San Francisco Bay Trail today from
Zols place to Uncle David and Auntie Renee's house in Santa Clara. We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather! Lots of sunshine and beautiful views.

Upon arrival I took a nice jacuzzi bath with a glass of wine (auntie Renee guarantees nothing will hurt tomorrow with that treatment) and we all sat down to a beautiful feast.

If this is what every day of our ride is like....bring it on :)
