49ers Stadium Taking Shape

San Francisco 49ers stadium in Santa Clara right off San Tomas Aquino Creek trail is taking shape at a rapid pace. Still, it’s not set to open until the 2014 football season.

I’ve warned about riding on the bayland levees after a rain or in a heavy fog, and now I’ll show you why. I haven’t made this mistake for 25 years. I started out from Alviso where the ground was relatively firm after a few days of light rain. However, farther along on the levee about a mile out things changed for the worse.

Within seconds my rear wheel jammed with thick, sticky mud. It’s the kind of mud that literally locks your wheel so it becomes difficult to ride. A mountain bike or cross bike would have fared better, but it would still be a tough slog.

Time to cut losses and beat a hasty retreat on the Alviso baylands trail. I had to stop and clear the mud with a screwdriver.
