In Monterey: 297 Miles To Go

I’m in Monterey, Ca.    Rode 50 miles and 1800 ft of climbing.   1098 Total miles covered to date.

Because we were riding in my home town and on cycling routes that I know like the back of my hand, I planned the first 15 miles or so of today’s ride and shared it with the group.  We hugged the coastline and visited my favorite beaches, views and vistas as we continued to move south along the Monterey Bay.  Once we left Santa Cruz, we traveled through the farmland of Watsonville, strawberries, brussel sprouts, artichokes and lots of lettuce.  It was a regular salad bowl out there, today.  We stopped at Moss Landing at a wildlife viewing area and saw otters, dolphins, seals, pelicans, cormorants and other shore birds.

Apparently some were not able to follow all the twists and turns of the directions and accidentally wound up on Highway 1, where they shouldn’t have been and were stopped by the highway patrol and told to take the next exit.  Yikes!

Four riding days left.  It is going fast.  For some reason, I am really tired after today’s ride.  Sleep is calling my name.

  1. Hi Susan – Good to know that things have gone very well so far and that you have crossed the Bay area. Wishing you the best for the rest of the ride and hope to connect with you again sometime in the near future. It has been a long time since I saw you last.
    Warm hugs to you.



  2. For the next trip : could you use meter en kilometer?:)
    To me, never easy to measure the difficulty of what you are doing
    Have a good day!
