78 mile ride. A killer headwind for the last 25 miles. Too tired to write. Except...
Most of my day today was spent on Highway 130, an ultra-rural road leading from Mount Hamilton, near east San Jose, to Livermore. The family of Richard Pombo, the former congressman from Tracy, Calif., owns a significant amount of land near the highway.
Pombo wanted 130 converted to a freeway that would directly connect Livermore to San Jose. This would have been good for his family.
