The Friday Cyclotouriste

a geo-photoblog chronicling my "excursions velo"

On the Road……Pacific Coast, Highway One (revisited)

without comments

I suppose I miss living near the ocean because I recently found myself looking through these photos from a memorable one-day trip down Highway One to Santa Cruz made in the summer of ’09.

My brother rode a classic Trek with city bars (see the final image below) and I rode my quasi-touring Ebisu, fitted with some snazzy Nishiki front pannier bags that I found on Ebay.

The photos are a couple years old, but looking at them gives me so much pleasure that I’ve decided to post them anyhow (and give them a nostalgic vignetting to account for their age).

Food and coffee stop…yum yum!

No bike lane; no shoulder; no looking down!

View to the northwest…the continent ends.

This is the last place. There is nowhere else to go.
Human movements,
but for a few,
are Westerly.

Lew Welch

More food; more coffee.
