Southern California

Riding on the Pacific Coast Highway in Southern California

Southern California – sunny beaches, scenic bike paths, sun-tanned surfers and beach volleyballers, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Malibu, Hermosa Beach, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Newport Beach etc. All this and more in the last couple of days!

Over the last couple of days I have been falling a bit behind with updating my daily notes and the Blog. There was a lot of riding and I had a few meetings with friends – also the days are getting noticeably shorter now with sunset by 7pm (soon we will hit the equinox) and many State Parks simply don’t offer wireless Internet or a place to sit and type on the computer…

When there is only one road, bikers go on it, even on the freeway!

Today I finally managed a rest day here near San Diego at a friends’ house where I was invited to visit and stay. So I did some updates today, including saving the SPOT track (of the last 7 days), adding daily notes to the US ride page with all notes from Oregon and California, and uploading a few dozen select photos to my California PicasaWeb photo library.

Here are a few quick photos capturing the flair of riding along Southern California.

Tomorrow I’m planning to take a rental car and driving to Lone Pine in the Owens Valley for the climb of Mt. Whitney. Look for my SPOT track on Whitney and updates on the Whitney page soon thereafter.
