I just briefly spoke with Mike. He is feeling good and ready to ride. On the other hand Eleanor (his bike) needs some work… Yesterday he was peddling along and all of a sudden he rode off of an “invisible curb.” His back tire came down hard, a few spokes broke, and now the back tire has some ‘wobble’ in it. Luckily, he kept control and remained on his seat! However, before he can get any repairs done, he has to make it through Big Sur.
He made some friends (no surprise there) and they are hitting the most difficult roads Big Sur has to offer today. Naturally, I wanted him to post what he is experiencing as he is riding, but he reminded me how dangerous that could be. So, he will try to post later, when he reaches Hearst Castle! For now enjoy the pictures of Big Sur from this travel blog so you can get a better idea of what Mike is seeing today.
