This December, I organized the fifth ever Bicycle Touring Professional “Bikes & Burritos” in a single day bike tour in Southern California… and 15 folks from all throughout the state (and across the nation) turned as much as trip from the town of Camarillo, down the coast of the Pacific Ocean to the close by Sycamore Canyon Campground within the metropolis of Malibu.
Alongside the way in which we stopped at California State College Channel Islands, rode our bikes via the farm fields, onto the Pacific Coast Freeway, previous Mugu Rock, down the coastal blue waters, alongside lots of of individuals tenting in trailers and RVs on the seashore, and finally made it to the state campground, the place we might spend the subsequent a number of minutes establishing our tents.
After everybody’s tents had been arrange, we walked from the campsite, all the way down to the seashore, simply in time for a spectacular sundown. Whereas we had been there, we noticed massive pelicans flying overhead and a pod of dolphins feeding on fish only a brief distance from the shore.
As soon as it acquired darkish, we returned to the campsite, simply in time for our burrito dinner. As we ate, we sat across the campfire and talked with each other, effectively into the night, earlier than diving into our tents and utilizing our new Bicycle Touring Professional beanies to maintain our heads heat as we slept.
It was tremendous chilly within the morning, however as quickly as we ate and the solar got here out, we packed up our tents and ready for the incredible bike trip, again alongside the coast, via the farm fields and again to our beginning location within the metropolis of Camarillo.
Earlier than reaching our vacation spot, we cycled via a set of houses adorned with animated characters, snowmen and reindeer, for the upcoming Christmas vacation.
