As we did last year Cynthia and I drove up early for the San Luis Obispo Bike Club’s annual Lighthouse Bicycle ride. This year there was a new starting point in Morro Bay at the high school. We arrived in the midst of lots of others getting set and riding off so we felt right in the mix. It was a brisk morning with some clouds and fog, a nice start to the day.
SLO BC had lots of food/rest stops and the new route allowed us to get far enough north to pass and see the ride’s namesake lighthouse as well as Cambria, Hearst Castle & Beach, the elephant seal rookery, and the magnificent north coast of SLO County. The weather, scenery and visits with other bikers and support staff made for a great day of riding. It was a capital outing. I thought we’d be riding around 60 miles today but I ended up with 74, which felt fine.
