Bike Hike

Yesterday I rode my e-bike to Santa Teresa park (about 10 miles one way) and did an old favorite route, the Ohlone trail to the Coyote peak trail (pushing the bike up), and rode back down on the road. The bike worked great, 38 mm tires are enough to handle the unpaved trails even though this is a hybrid, not a mountain bike. And “walk-assist” mode helps on steeper sections, instead of having to push a 35 lb bike, it gives enough assist that it feels feather-light.

Start of the Ohlone trail
There are a lot of pretty oak groves along the lower section of the Coyote peak trail
Coyote peak (where the antenna is) looks deceptively close from here but there is still a good bit of distance on some switchbacks to get there
