*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Today we take a fairly short ride in the San Carlos hills, where Gaspar de Portola first sighted the San Francisco Bay. After the fog lifted, that is. King Carlos III had sent Gaspar to expel the Jesuits, and in their place Junipero Serra soon arrived, of the Franciscan order. Let's call the place San Carlos, mused Gaspar. Good idea, the King replied. Same difference, noted the enslaved natives. And thus we ride, hither and yon, between sea and sky, leaving fading tireprints to mask our brief passage. Print route or download to phone and Navigate from [Map] Ride starts & finishes at the Park n Ride at the Edgewood exit off 280. If that's full, drive under the freeway downhill and park near Canada Road. Contact your lonely goatherd for carpool options.
