Californian Input Needed
I'll be in the Bay Area next month for a few days on business. I'm going to take a Friday evening/Saturday to get some ride time in. I'll be renting a bike (and going radically different, with a BMW K1600GT).
I'll be picking up the bike Friday the 13th of March before the place closes, so I can get an early start on Saturday morning and take a run down Highway 1 for a couple hundred miles and then back up to Mountain View. I have to have the bike back by 5PM on Saturday.
Here's my question: If I were to pick the bike up a little early on Friday, say 3PMish, I'm considering taking a late afternoon/evening ride down 17 over to Santa Cruz, then north on 1 up to Half Moon Bay and then loop back to my hotel in Milpitas. On paper, that's a little less than a 3 hour loop. The question is, traffic wise, is that reasonable? Will Friday afternoon rush hour kill my buzz enough that I should just give up the idea and take off early in the morning?
I'd really appreciate some local input. -Jay
