Sunshine, Miles and Smiles

The fun continues when John and Mitzi bring their coupled bike to SoCal on its maiden voyage. We ride 236 miles together, including a group ride that we organize for the local tandem club.  Somebody’s got to do it.

A running race closes the usually busy Pacific Coast Highway to cars, but not to bikes.

No cars on the PCH for 5 glorious miles!

We continue our traditions with Balboa Bananas and lots of sunsets.

A strong tailwind pushes us through Huntington Beach and all the way home on our last ride of the week.

We end an action-packed week with a visit to the Don The Beachcomber, where rockabilly guitar legend Deke Dickerson performs.

It’s a giant tiki-bar!

  1. Fabulous pictures. Certainly hope John & I get to bike with you again. We’ve just returned from biking Cologne to Rome with our 2014 C2C buds.

  2. Yes they were! It was a terrific hour of entertainment. Deke actually was the special guest and opened for a group of young men called The Cactus Blossoms! Thoroughly enjoyable.
