As advertised, today's ride was a long one: the Easy Rider 200 route (125 miles.) Joining me was Mikki S., who used the miles to test his fully loaded steel frame Masi. His rig must weigh at least 50 pounds and I was duly impressed by his ability to flatten hills.
We were treated to some nice coastal views and perfect riding weather. On the was back through San Clemente we treated ourselves to tacos at Cafe Del Sol. It was great to kick back in the sunshine on their patio.
Saw lots of birds along the coast: redtail hawks, road runners, and vultures. They must have been taking advantage of the end of the storms to get some lunch too.
The back from Oceanside took a bit longer than planned but still managed to make it back home just in time for a nice sunset!
