NBW Hope Valley Southern Ride

Just entering the beach area. During the summer, you can't find a parking space on the road.

This house looks out over the beach, what a view.

This guy used the paddle to get back out quicker.

There were quite a few surfers out in the morning.

This ride is only 32 miles, so John worked out an extension for me down to Matunak beach. It added on 12 miles, so I ended up with 44.5 for the day. I had a pretty good headwind once I got onto Post Rd and it was with me all the way to the beach. Coming back wasn't bad but my legs were really feeling it from the 5 days of riding I got in during the week. It was 38 degree's when I started at 8:30 and it warmed up to 55 degree's at the finish at 12:30.

Friday Night Ride

Cross street.
Oakhill Ave.

There were lots of puddles I had to dodge from the earlier rain.

I got my 4th ride in within 5 days this week. I took in a few more streets I haven't been on in a while. Ended up with 17 miles.
