It was good to finally get this ride done. I guess the third time’s the charm, and we still got to see some seals. The day was clear and the roads were only a little wet in a few places. We had a large group with some 18 bikes and 20 riders.
I always like this ride. As almost anyone will tell you, I like riding near the water. Had our mid-morning break at Rancho Nicasio, and then some of us stopped at Inverness Park for sandwiches. The ride out to Drakes was crystal clear and not too cold. We had lunch and took pictures sheltered by the visitors center at the park.
As we started the ride back the wind picked up. Still wasn’t too bad and we drove up Hwy 1 stopping at the Bakery in Tomales for some hot drinks. If you haven’t stopped here recently, it’s definitely a great spot. Their personal pizzas are a must-try.
It was a great ride and it was really good to see so many old friends again.
