Windy Bike Ride Today!
Friday, May 25, 2012
Flat ride around Alameda and Bay Farm Island, but the wind made it like climbing hills, but you can't see "the hills" so it's relaly annoying!
Here is a picture of me at the windiest part on Bay Farm Island with San Francisco in the background.
It was so windy that the kite surfers were out in droves at Crown Memorial Beach in Alameda -- I counted 21 in the water and at least as many on shore getting ready or finishing up.
We rode 21 miles and then went to Forbidden Island Tiki Bar and had a drink (good thing we burned so many calories on our ride!). Drinking on an empty stomach makes me a very cheap date -- 3 hours and a dinner later and I still feel like I have a buzz. LOL!
Hope you all have an active and fun Memorial Day weekend! And don't forget those who have died in the armed services.
