Photos: An 85-Mile Bay Area Epic
Nothing like a big-assed bike ride to welcome you home.
San Jose to Los Gatos (over the hills via Kennedy Road), Los Gatos to Saratoga via Highway 9, up and over a few winery climbs, past Stevens Creek Down and out to Los Altos. Fast track on Foothill Expressway to Sand Hill then over to Portola and up Old La Honda.
Pan to family eating fresh pasta around a humble table. Cue the deep-fried artichoke. Add homemade wine.
