As we near the end of the year, we focus on the numbers and how many miles we need to hit the magical mark of 5000. We are currently in Southern California, where the climate and roads are friendly to cyclists. Barring any unforeseen circumstances we should be able to notch most, if not all of the 1200 miles we need to make our goal.
Our last post was about the Southern Tandem Rally, the end of a six month whirlwind of moving, travel and hosting two tandem rallies. This post is about much needed rest and relaxation. We’ve been doing that on our trusty (California-based) Erickson tandem.
Here is a glimpse of what we’ve been up to. The blooms, the food, the air show, a trip to LA, the coast and of course the sunsets!
Speaking of the air show, fall means its time for The Great Pacific Air Show. It’s the largest one in the country and Huntington Beach hosts it every year. We watched parts of it on two different days. Riding a bike is the best way to see it because the traffic and parking are bad news for cars!
We attended a UGA alumni event at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills – very classy and even got some culture at UCLA’s Hammer Museum.
The coast and the mighty Pacific Ocean are always a sight to behold and extremely photogenic.
Up next, we import some friends from Florida and show them the sights and our favorite area rides.
