Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

75 miles. 1 Banana. 1 cup of coffee. 2 beers. 1 turkey sandwich and fries.

Set out this morning to ride out to a place known as "Big Rock" on Pacific Coast Highway with a buddy. Here's a few pics from todays ride.

The past 10 days it's been hot and sunny. This morning was 60 and overcast. Go figure:




You can see Big Rock in the distance:

Headed back towards Malibu:

And of course the beach:


Overall turned out to be a great day. Would loved to have made some more miles but the 2 beers made it harder to care.

Looks like a nice ride, friend and i rode down to Santa Monica last weekend from Burbank. Nice getting a break from the heat, coming back sucked, got hotter and hotter every mile. Might have to ride down PCH soon.

I lived along the coast this week to escape the heat, but riding mostly south from TCB down to Redondo and back. Where'd you eat (in that pic) Rob?

Nice ride. I wasn't expecting the weather to change completely, but what did I know. Been a long while since I've been up to Malibu, and near the Palisades area. I guess I'll have to comfort myself to riding around the OC tomorrow.

The rock is big.

Why so serious? is that your "look"

If I drink beer mid ride, I sleep.

Thanks for sharing.

I was wondering what "big rock" was until I saw the pic. I've never heard it called that.

I love the Tsunami. I was considering one before but they always looked so ugly, but yours looks great!
