Bodega Beach to Samuel P Taylor

After a good night and thankfully another dry night we packed up, had our porridge and coffee and left for the 40 mile trip to Samuel P Taylor and the last night before riding into San Francisco 😉
The weather was good, the route fairly flat and although we were heading inland for the first part the scenery was still good, our first town was Bodega….

Bodega Bay.
Gentle rolling countryside was the order of the day for the following 20 or so miles…

Lovely views but we wanted to be back on the coast.
As lunch time approached we were heading for a place called Nicks Cove and although it was a bit expensive looking we decided to treat ourselves to steak sandwiches, great views from the terrace enhanced an already good lunch…

All three photos, views from the terrace at Nicks Cove.
During lunch Bob joined us for an iced tea but left fairly quickly as he wanted to make a start towards camp, he’s not the quickest but gets there eventually 😉
Just as we’d finished lunch Tom turned up so he joined us for the remaining miles to camp. The scenery returned briefly to unspectacular so the camera stayed in my pocket, one last stop before camp to get groceries and beer, hooked up with Bob again and with the last hill out of the way we entered the State Park by way of a cycle path, 5 miles later we were registered and setting up camp in the hiker biker site, Serge and Cameron were already there so it was another good night with people we knew.

I'm a forty something single guy who spent far to long depressed, but luckily for me I found an answer in the form of exercise !! I started running and cycling on a regular basis and now two and a half years later I'm cycling the world !!
