going on my second little bike touring trip tomorrow!! (the oakland—sacramento century ride “ride for a reason" doesn’t totally count as a "bike tour" because it was supported).
- SF—pescadero (staying at the pigeon point lighthouse hostel) ~54 miles
- pescadero—santa cruz ~27 miles or so
- santa cruz—san jose (then caltrain back to sf or bus to bart to oakland)
not as detouring as this group did—they went to a couple state parks to camp out—my friend and i don’t plan on camping and won’t be bringing any camping gear.
and pretty easy on the mileage—i only hope the hills aren’t so tough but i heard from santa cruz to san jose the hills are like going up grizzly peak..
