We took a good long ride today, Nimue and Chad on the tandem, Anna on her road bike, around "the Loop": a well-known local route that includes several modest hills and lots of nice scenery. We met up with Chad's friend Dave at Arastradero Park, and stopped for coffee & cocoa in Menlo Park before heading home. At nearly 36 miles, this was Nimue's longest ride so far, by a considerable margin! And, with more than 1200 feet of climbing, it wasn't the easiest terrain she's been on , either. She was a real trooper and had good spirits throughout, despite wind, hills, and an occasional sprinkle of rain.
