Today I finally found the time to try out my idea of riding my e-bike to Vasona Lake and then Kayaking. I did a trial run proving the route was safe last week. Today I made it to Vasona in 95 minutes. The route through San Jose and Los Gatos is fine, but not particularly pleasant as there is a good bit of urban riding on busy streets. Even though they have bike lanes, there is substantial traffic and red lights to deal with.

It was pleasant once I was on the water, starting about 11:30 AM (rentals open at 11). It wasn’t too hot today, I forgot how exposed you are out on the lake. Fortunately, I had a good amount of sunscreen on and a “safari hat” and neck gaiter for protection.

On the ride back I stood up to pedal more of the way, and also had a bit of a headwind, so it took almost two hours. All in all, it was an adventure.
