Yesterday I led another group ride, pinch-hitting for our usual leader who will be back next week. I did our group ride that rambles through San Martin then heads up the Coyote Creek Trail to Metcalf park, then goes to the Coyote Creek golf course for lunch. But I threw in a little dog-leg so the route took us past a small farm that has alpacas and llamas. Then we took a detour up over Malech road, which has a steep but not too long climb, leading to nice views before it drops back down to rejoin the trail.
I took my non-electric upright because I wanted the challenge of keeping up with this group. It turned out only four of the faster members came for the ride, so it made for a brisk (but enjoyable) pace for me.
