I rode my recumbent to Santa Teresa Park in south San Jose to do a jaunt with my hiking meetup. We hiked up the steep way to Coyote Peak, then back down the gentler way. My favorite way to do it. On the way home I did some sprints on the ‘bent. Pretty stiff tailwind on the way back, so I was glad so for some electric assist. Overall a challenging but fun workout.

Mama cows and their half-grown calves on the boundary trail on the way up. Some of the calves were to the left of the trail and Mama to the right. Knowing it’s not a good idea to between a Mama and her calf, we worked our way past slowly while gently reassuring the Mamas. They just stared at us and chewed their cuds so I guess they’re used to humans coming by

On Coyote Peak, San Jose is in the background. Our group leader, Roya, is holding Mollie, a little Yorkie-poodle mix who walked most of the way, but was carried by her owner (taking the picture) up some of the steeper bits
