After a mile, I reach the old Orestimba Corral and stop at the picnic table for a Clif-bar-and-water break
It's noticeably hotter here and I wipe sweat from my brow, even though I'm not riding uphill. My drinking water is already quite warm.
With each ridge crossing away from Henry Coe Park headquarters, the temperature tends to rise a bit as one leaves the Bay Area and approaches the hotter weather system of California's Central Valley. I'm several ridges inland now.
