The pacific coast bike route might just be my favorite thing in the world. I had a day off so I eagerly rode down to Santa Cruz and continued my way south, until evening approached and i had to turn back. I didn’t have a map or anything as i figured it would be pretty easy to just follow the coast. I soon picked up the bike route though as it’s pretty well signposted, i actually forgot about the official route until i saw the signs. I cycled 65 miles along the scenic coast and loved every minute of it. I mean there’s a different beach every 2o minutes or so, and you get a nice breeze from the sea whilst riding, what’s not to love.
One thing i like about cycling is that you absorb your surroundings. Back home i spent a lot of time riding behind buses, not because i liked getting high of the petrol fumes, but rather i used them as a wind breaker. You can imagine how sweet it was, to now be cycling next to thousands of strawberry’s, growing 6 feet away from me. The smell was out of this world, i could almost taste it. It was easily the nicest smell i have ever encountered, and i was in no rush to cycle on. I were planning on Armstrong’ing it down the coast to Mexico, but after sampling the delights of coastal riding, i will definitely allow more time.
