The New Long Way Home!

So last Friday I rode to Nichols Sportbike to get a new rear tire. With the traffic on 680 being so bad heading north anytime after 2pm I was looking at a map trying to see if there was a good way home, and sure enough there it was, Calaveras Road. Twisting through the Fremont Hills. So instead of splitting lanes up 680, I headed west until I was in the hills. Since I had a new rear tire, I took it easy and wasn’t too annoyed to be stuck behind a slower motorcyclist. Eventually they let me past and I rode a little faster, but always keeping it fairly slow since I do not know the road that well and it is only one lane and known to have large construction trucks on it because of work on the dam for the reservoir up there.

Still it’s beautiful up there and it is great to know that I can still take a scenic detour on my way home.
