Since I went to San Ramon to pick up some magazines from a friend, hoping to make collage art work one of these days, I decided to go to route 742, at least half way.
Heading down, when I hit a part of the road that was mostly wet clay, I paused. One of the Municipality workers that was there asked me if I wanted him to take it down. I said yes. 🙂 Win/win. He felt good helping a damsel in distress, and I felt good to not have felt any distress! Hahaha!
(My two falls on wet clay during our trip to Ruta Quetzal has made me shy about it. I probably could have gotten through, however, especially since it was not uphill.)
Route 742 is mostly hard-packed gravel, with some paved sections. Some parts have more rocks and ruts, but it is quite doable.
I enjoyed the trip back just as much!
I then went over to Los Angeles, to Restaurant Mi Rancho, to freshen up, thinking I would cross over a gravel road to go up to route 703 and El Mirador Restaurant. But the clouds in the distance looked full of rain, so I decided to head on over to route 1 instead.
On Route 1, I decided to take Route 756 to San Rafael de Esparza. It was a short, scenic trip. The road is paved with some parts washed out.
Yeah. What I like about riding alone is being able to go from Plan A to C if needed! 🙂 Going with my own flow!!
