Palo Alto Baylands Ride
Took an easy ride to the Palo Alto Baylands to clock up some mileage in my legs.
1242 track points (blue diamonds) laid by the GPS unit.
It's about 10 miles (via Central Expressway) from my apartment to this paved trail by NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View. This 1.1 mile straightway is part of my inline skating route.
Again, this gentle uphill, coupled with a stiff breeze coming from the bay, makes for great training on inline skates.
It's about 18 miles (28.8 km) from Santa Clara to this point.
Watching the sunset over San Francisco Bay at the end of the elevated walkway.
Total distance: 35.7 miles (57.1 km).
Elevation climbed: 540 ft (164.6 m).
Ride conducted solo.
