Lompoc - Finally

Arrived in Lompoc tonight after 3 days riding instead of the planned 1. We rode 32 miles miles and climbed an uncountable number of hills today. Tonight camp is a hiker/biker site in River campground just 1.5 miles south of Mission La Purisima. Tomorrow we tour the mission then ride 19 miles to Solvang, which has bakeries and oh yes another mission. Little known biking fact; There are two classes of bikers: the lycra crowd and the padded butt group. The first do wind sprints drafting behind support vehicles. The second attempt to draft behind tractors and fail. (Cat and I are definitely in the padded butt group!)
