|2008/05/31 Up Montebello to Skyline and Ridge Winery

Jennifer and I went biking up Montebello Road from home, via Stevens Creek Reservoir. It was a reasonable 2800ft climb which took me about 1H to ascend (I'll have to time it more carefully next time).
Although it was a sunny day, the top was foggy, windy and cold, which wasn't that pleasant on my sweat (it actually got quite cold and sucky on the fast ride down due to the relative wind. I should have taken a jersey/light jacket).
At least, it was cool: it was my first time not only biking up that high, up to Skyline, and from home no less :)
At the top, I looked at what the options are so that I can come back, and do a longer ride with Xav up to skyline and down to Stevens Canyon or Pagemill.
On the way down, Jennifer and I stopped at the Ridge Winery for some tasting (well, tasting was mostly for her :) )
