Back in the Saddle

Laurie here:
Two days ago  we road 18 miles from San Luis Obispo to Pismo Beach. Nice ride, with the highlight being the dead-end bike path with a visual of the desired road 50 yards ahead. Rather than backtracking 2 miles we lifted the bikes over the barbed wire fence, pushed them 10 feet along the berm of highway 101 and lifted them over another fence and happily cycled away.

Yesterday was a 30 mile ride up one steep hill and endless agriculture land. Best moments were the strawberry stand stops. One was closed so we ate
a tomato we'd bought the day before. Cathy gave hers a nice dust bath. At the second stop the bike and helmet landed randomly on the ground until after the berries were gone. There is nothing as tasty as fresh berries after 20 miles in the saddle. Better than main-lining red-bull.

Little known bike energy facts:  you get 12 miles per cinnamon roll,
5 miles per pound of strawberries and 3 miles per tomato.
