Biking from Monterey to SLO

April 26, 2012

Well, it’s time for another personal photo blog! Seany (the hubby) and I love to do all sorts of out-doorsy sporty things, and that includes bike touring. For those who don’t know, bike touring is like backpacking, but with bikes. You bring everything you need for camping and life and bike away. We’ve slowly over the course of several short trips been chipping away at the west coast. This past week we did the long-anticipated Monterey to San Luis Obispo bit, which includes the incredibly gorgeous Big Sur portion of the coast.

It. Was. AWESOME.

 

Perfect weather the whole way, and all the triathlon training we’ve been doing has certainly prepared us for this trip. Enough talk, here’s some Californian eye candy. Oh, and there might be a couple shots of us in there too :0)

    Lovely photos. Glad you had a great trip! Yes, cycle-touring is just great. As long as it only rains for a few hrs. 🙂

  2. April 26, 2012 4:33 pm

    Lovely pictures! I especially love all those California poppies!

  3. April 26, 2012 4:36 pm

    Absolutely beautiful pictures. We take a big trip every year and I always start off planning for the west coast but usually end up cutting it just shy of California. I really want to take a trip up the coast line of California into Oregon this year. Would be a nice addition to my travel blog. Thanks for sharing

      If you do, *definitely* go north to south. The wind blows that direction most often, so going north you’d be fighting headwinds the whole way. Been there, done that, it sucked…

    Fantastic!!

  5. April 26, 2012 4:50 pm

    Wow! These are just absolutely stunning.

  6. April 26, 2012 4:52 pm

    Beautiful photographs. What a great adventure. You two are very cute!
    Congrats on getting Freshly Pressed!

    You’re so lucky! I’m in love with a woman who is or was a triathlete who now is trying to kill me for reasons I’m not privy to…I biked from North Conway, NH down or over to Brownfield, Maine to see her perform from a distance and camped out on the Shepherd’s River which was cool cause that’s my name and I have a big fire going which made everyone in the dry as the desert valley a little nervous after 36 hours of continuous smoking out of the valley…I thought it was cool watching the smoke drift downstream telling everyone in it’s path “danger!!!” in such a soft and eloquent way…everything went fine till the day of the show when it turned out I was on someone’s land who started screaming at me maybe cause the whole town had burned to the ground 100 years ago…dunno…but I found out that I can put out my fire and pack up in less then 5 minutes…she decided to dump gallons of water on my fire anyway while her husband queried me: “what were you thinking?” Answer: Shepherd’s River…my name is Shepherd…I apologize…” I used a trailer with my Specialized mountain bike and the day after the concert I had to cover 80 miles over a series of 1600 foot hills only to find out when I reached the flat that one of my trailer tires was almost flat and the other kinda flat and my bike tires soft and then coming down a hill at 25 mph no hands my rear wheel came all the way out of the frame sending me to the pavement like a sack of bones…I’m still sore but it was great…I did not know I could cover 80 miles through hill with flat tires…now I do…but don’t have time to write about camping on beaches and finding al my stuff in the custody of the police or getting my laptop stolen first day back in Harvard Square…another time…thanks for your post…I’m writing from the Boston Public Library and now out of time…Peace!

    Beautiful pictures! May I ask what camera you used? I’m looking to buy a new one but can’t decide on which one to get…

  12. April 26, 2012 5:59 pm

    Love it!! Incredibly too much. I want to go, NOW. Hold my patience, hope to be there in a few months, got a big project to complete here in Mexico City first.

    The photos are super! Glad you got freshly pressed and it was right there before my eyes! All the best.

    This is my project to visit every metro station in Mexico City and visit the surrounds to document urban life – mainly in the streets! Cheers..

    That is a bike trip I’ve been dreaming about for forty years. The best I could do was called “Sierra to the Sea” starting from San Jose with the Almaden Bike Club. I’ve done others but always dreamed about a coastal trip. Your flower photos are amazing. Thanks for sharing and bringing back some great memories.

  14. April 26, 2012 6:39 pm

    I love this ride! I normally do it in one day, but taking your time is much better! Jealous

    • May 18, 2012 3:43 pm

      140 miles in one day with camping gear!? that’s crazy pants! We definitely like to take our time, and arriving at camp at 2pm and having the rest of the day to relax is pretty nice too :0)

    Great post! A friend of ours here at TwoCanoe did a cross country bike tour across Canada, it was interesting to see his progress as he made his way from the west to east coasts, all the while camping and carrying his life with him. Your pictures and athleticism are equally inspiring, keep up the good work!

    Incredible. It’s wonderful to see you taking advantage of your good health (and keeping it) and not missing out on this contact with the outdoors. I rode along Big Sur with my parents in the 1960s, when I was a young teenager. I have never forgotten the beauty, but you are getting much more out of it than I did. Thanks for the photos and congrats on being FP.

    Oh wow! Those are some amazing pictures. What a trip you’ve been on. I love heading down there myself but have never seen it in the way you two are. Doing on bikes offers a whole new experience. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I can’t imagine biking from Monterey to SLO; however, I love the drive. Its been years since I’ve taken that drive and your photos brought back some of the best memories I have had. Thank you.

    Your pictures are breathtaking. A couple of questions if you don’t mind: How did you start doing this bike touring, (training, food, equipment)? I’d love to start with short trips with my girlfriend and our dogs. What would you recommend?

    • May 18, 2012 3:24 pm

      Thanks! My hubby and I started….well, I don’t really remember, to be honest. I didn’t have a car for a long time and had to bike everywhere, so I got used to biking a lot. We’ve always loved camping, so it made sense to put the two together. Get a rack for your bike and some panniers, and you’re all set to go! Start off with something small, like a one day or weekend trip. Be aware that you’ll go a *lot* slower than you would without the extra stuff, especially if there are hills. And bring snacks – lots and lots of snacks.

        Thanks for your input. I’ll start slowly this Summer:)

        Awesome :0)

        Today I went bike riding for, brace yourself, 10 minutes. I know it sounds like a joke, but I have to start somewhere, don’t you think?

    Yeah these photos are amazing. Good shots with a good camera and lens. Beautiful colors. I don’t even have to travel cause thanks to you I can see all of this right here in front of my computer. Even though I wouldn’t mind living in such a nice place of nature myself 🙂

  148. April 30, 2012 4:43 pm

    I traveled that same stretch of road last summer- unfortunately a tad foggier than your trek, but amazing anyway. Looks like Spring is the time to see the flowers in full swing! Your post is inspiring me to head back this year.
    Side: Next time you’re in the area, stay at the Adventure Tent at Fernwood… We stumbled upon it and it’s a special place (and the photos on this link don’t do it justice).

    Thanks for taking me along, great photos. I’ve driven the route you took but only biked on the coast road from Ft. Bragg to SF, which was a great trip. Looks like you had the ideal time of year.
