Limantour Road to Coast Trail to Inverness Ridge...

The spectacular weather we had over the weekend held out for one more day so I could take advantage of it on my day off. Pulled the cross bike down and headed up Limantour Road to the Coast Trail and then back up to Inverness Ridge Trail. It's mid-November and the temperature, in town, topped out at 78 degrees. Perfect day for a ride.

I stopped at a pull-out on the way up Limantour Rd. and took a couple photos of the newly created Giacomini Wetlands. You can see the newly flooded area and what it looked like previously in the photo on the sign. The circled area is the same.

Only two hours but after climbing back up Limantour Road with its 20% grade, my legs were screaming. A cappuccino at Toby's helped my recovery process after the ride.
