excuse my language but fuck ya i did it! it was a crazy 7 mile up hill ride and boy was it AMAZING! i have never in my life done anything like it. the entire time we were riding i had the lyrics from The Karate Kid.."your the best around nothing is every gonna bring you down..." it felt really great to get to our camp site and see the view and how high of a climb we had to get to in order to reach the site...and for a bonus we had some visitors...turkeys!
we only stayed for one night and then packed up the next morning. it was crazy coming down the hill because while going up i wasn't paying too much attention to the altitude..just trying to keep my legs spinning and to not think of the hot sun beating down on me... but you really notice the incline when we left...it is literally ALL up hill...i wish we had taken more pictures of it so you could see...guess if you live in this area you might want to try it out :D we really want to do the ride again but next time stay an extra night so that we can have an extra day to rest and explore the area around more. it is really soo gorgeous and to think that it is only an hours bike ride away!
how was your 4th of july? pictures of our alameda flea market treasure hunt to come!
