Today I finally found the time to try out my idea of e-biking to Lake Vasona and then kayaking. I did a trial proving the route was safe Last week. Today I arrived in Vasona in 95 minutes. The drive through San Jose and Los Gatos is good, but not particularly pleasant as there is a lot of city driving on busy streets. Even though they have bike lanes, there is heavy traffic and red lights to deal with.
It was nice once on the water, starting around 11:30am (rentals open at 11am). It wasn’t too hot today, I had forgotten how exposed you are on the lake. Luckily I had a good amount of sunscreen and a “safari hat” and neck warmer to protect myself.
On the way back, I got up to pedal more, and also had a bit of a headwind, so it took almost two hours. In short, it was an adventure.
