A couple of days ago I wanted to do a longer workout so I rode my e-bike to Santa Teresa park. I did standing pedaling on the way in low assist. which took about an hour. I then hiked up to Coyote peak in the park and rode back down and home. The sky was beautiful, it looked wintry like maybe a storm was coming in (which turned out to be true, we got rain later in the day). It was cold and very windy, so I indulged in a little extra assist on the way home. This is one of my favorite outings. Years ago we worked out in a gym not far from the park. My wife would drop me off on the way, and I’d run to the park, hike to the peak, then run back down and meet her at the gym. So now I “pseudo-run” with stand-up pedaling.
