I TOOK MY BIKE WIDOW, aka Surfergirl, vanping up the coast. Some of us, me, Have a tough time riding with our betters. But, this was a hit...
... camping at Emma Wood's State Beach.
We rolled out for a lovely morning pedal north along the water's edge. A stunning winter's day. Pancake flat. Eversoslight headwind.
Pardon the hashtag, but... #browniepoints.
An hourish in, and we were set to turn back. It was at the bottom of a famous climb. She caught me looking forlornly as my people, chiseled and svelte, were heading up.
Where does that go?
Oh, I think (I knew dernwell) it might go inland and circle back to where we started.
You should go that way?
Yeah, I'll be fine.
Going up was wonderful. It's a great climb, on a typical CA country road. No options to turn for miles. Just go up, and down, and twist around.
But, here's the thing. I wasn't 100% sure which way to go after an hour of bliss, and TBH... me hates stopping and looking at giggle maps.
Instead, I did something truly radical...
... I stopped a couple of times and talked to humans.
I said things like Good morning, do you know if this goes...
... and they responded with, Hi there... yes it does just go...
Bold, I know... as the great Nacho Libre says, Sometimes when you are a man you wear stretchy pants and ask for help.
You also wear stretchy socks, made in these United States of ours with FastMax Compression Technology and EZ Breathe yars.
I know I said this was ending on 10/31, but my bike widow is begging to go window shopping on State Street in Santa Barbara... and, well, I got a lot more good deeds to do before next race season.
