The biking is done for this year. Today we rode North up Pacific Coast
Highway 1 back to San Francisco. It was really cold on the coast but
warmer as we moved inland again.
headed to Sausalito for lunch. W got a great video of us riding over
the bridge. We then rode back over the bridge - $6 toll for a motorbike. What a
rip-off! I got us back to the hotel on Post Street, W checked in and
took our bags in and I went to hand the bike back. It wasn't due till
tomorrow morning but if took it back early it would save hassle
tomorrow. So I make the not unstressful rise through downtown SF back to the
bike shop. So glad to hand it back without any mishaps. Then, still wearing my bike kit, I walk out of the bike shop, hail a
cab and get back to the hotel. When I get back W asks me where the luggage is. Ha ha - of course she
already has taken our stuff in. No really - where is the lugage we
left at the bike shop for the week. Oh... Looks like I'll be making another trip to the bike shop tomorrow

We saw this guy stopped at the side of the road crossing Lake
Nacimiento dam. We didn't see the 'No Parking Any Time' signs till
after we had stopped and got off.
face helmets and proper biking jackets. We explained we were European
then it made sense to him and we agreed that most Harley riders are
mad going about with tiny helmets and just t-shirts. Turns out he was French and had been living in California for 30
years. He sounded like he had just got off the boat. We told him we were heading for Carmel Valley Road and he warned us
that the road was quite small and difficult. Another few minutes chat
and we were on our way...
