Has a dead-end, but not even close to overlook SCV.

For those of us who don't live in the South Bay and who need to be sure we've figured out the tag before we commit the whole day to the hunt: may we have another clue or two?

Pretty please?

I may have an idea on this, but haven't been there in years and don't want make the trek if I'm wrong. Thanks!

Okay, well that was a nice ride, but I was wrong!
How many dead end roads with wine tasting and a view of the valley are there, anyway?
At least it WAS easier on a scooter than on a bike.

Hi,
I went to the old Jesuit Novitiate Winery up on Joseph's Hill in Los Gatos.

http://www.testarossa.com/directions.html

It's a dead end, there's a gate, there's a view, there's hiking and it's not the place.

Great ride, though!

Looks like a great ride. Did you take ay pictures? I think you missed the first clue. Close to home. I live in Mountain View. Los Gatos is a bit of a hike for me. This place is a lot closer to home.

yeah I thought I found it too, but no.

Now I think I have a pretty damn good idea where it is, but I dont feel like riding up there right now, busy busy, unless I had incentive... like a hot steamy make out session with some random chick.

D'oh! That was it.

Was it a "dead end" road b/c of road construction? I'm looking at a Google Map saying it reaches all the way to Stevens Canyon.

OOOHHH!!! New Sunday Ride route?

I'm thinking of including Ridge Vineyards for the vintner's ride on AV 2009.
There's Pichetti Vineyards also on the way up.
I learned to enjoy Cabernets and Zinfandels here.

The route does dead end for vehicles. It's a narrow road with great views. Bicyclists like it also. We can just add the Vineyards at the top of the Mt Eden route and picnic at the top.

The few times I have wandered up that road. I came to that gate and saw nothing but gravel going forward. It wasn`t until stig mentioned it going thru that I looked on a map. So to all you searchers I say sorry. I thought it was a dead end and so posted the clue.

I figured since I'll be in "that area", might as well see if anyone wants to make it a Tag Team snag. Haven't been sleeping well lately so might as well use the early hours to tag it (leave approx 6-7a).

You can come if you'd like, but I won't be long (still have plans for the rest of the AM/Day/evening. 8)

Not exactly "tagged"
So I couldn't find the original spot, was able to find the "Further East" clue.

Location : Port of Redwood City.

I recognized it because I know Lyngso granite is close and has machinery like the blue tower. The third picture had the Dumbarton Bridge in the background, easy find for anyone who lives/lived in Palo Alto.

Judges? Verdict? Tagged or No Tag?

That can be constued SO wrong in so many ways... Laughing emoticon 8)

Even if I don't get it, I could care less. It was nice to be back near the ol' stomping ground and be out so early. I amost forgot that feeling I had every morning I got off work when I did graveyard - among the first to see the morning and almost NOBODY else on the roads.

Le sigh.

Sweet! It's a good thing I grabbed another tag before heading home.

Clue : Long before Tanya ever took-on SF Vespa, I had to drag my ass back and forth for service, without a loaner bike.... I would always think about this lonely little spot, only stopping when necessary.

Where am I?

Clue time!

My mind always seems to associate this place with the guys in orange vests, on the side of the road, doing cleaning work and refurbishing our State's highways.

This location is also the second stop into San Mateo County. I didn't have to ride very long to get here from the Port of Redwood City.
