Went for a ride up and back on Bolinas Ridge Sunday morning. My preferred route is to ride down Hwy. 1 to the Randall trailhead and turn up Randall, which is a 1.7 mile 900' climb up a pretty nice service road. From there, I usually pedal north a bit, head down Shafter Trail to access the San Geronimo Ridge trail. Sunday, I made a right and headed south to the southern terminus of the Bolinas Ridge Trail, turned around and headed back, further putting miles on the new Clement X'Plor MSO 40 tires (more about them later).
When I left, it was overcast with the promise of sun later in the morning. I hit the top of Randall, made my right on Bolinas Ridge and within a short distance came across a pretty spectacular setting where the overcast was lifting and with the sun filtering through the trees through the light fog, left a striking visual of the rays. Within moments of taking these shots, the effect was all but gone. Damn good timing.
