Riding the California Coastline

March 24 - 25, 2010

El Pacifico. Riding the beautiful Pacific Coastal Highway south from San Francisco. Something I've wanted to do before leaving the US.

Oh yeah :)

This was definitely some epic landscape, especially with the lighting towards dusk.

The historic Bixby Bridge, built in 1932.

Can't get tired of this view.

Looking back north with Bixby Bridge in view.

The sun coming through the heavy clouds made for wonderful lighting.

A hilly island right on the coast, near San Simeon.

Staying with ADVer John in Paso Robles.

Riding Hwy 101 down the coast towards San Diego. This is just north of Los Angeles.

Passing under a Delta 757 landing at the always busy LAX (Los Angeles Airport) (am also an aviation enthusiast).

As dreaded as freeway riding is, I'm definitely going to miss how well organized and easy to use the US Interstate system is.

Uggh, this is the widest freeway I've ridden, 7 lanes! This is in southern LA where I-405 and I-5 meet. Traffic wasn't bad, only backed up twice and with bikes being allowed in the carpool lane and with lane-splitting, it was no problem.

Catching Hwy 101 back on the coast near San Diego. I was heading to meet my friend Ruben who moved out from Chicago.

Next: Weekend in San Diego
