San Diego


tl;dr: Down from the mountains and into urban jungle that surrounds San Diego.

The fog rolled in down below while I slept, but the air was clear up here.

I packed up and hit the gravel road well before sunrise. I was still walking my bike, but that's only because these roads are slightly suicidal in the dark. With sunlight came a long downhill roll with very little peddling and a lot of braking. I'm glad I have disc brakes.

Breakfast was found at a Wendy's on the edge of Chula Vista. Who knew that Wendy's served breakfast?

I rode as far West and South as possible without exciting the Border Patrol. Hello Mexican beach joggers behind the giant fence. I then made my way to a hotel farther north where I would spend the week.

A few people asked me about my travels, but interest levels were closer to comparing notes than novel interrogation. Bicycling touring along the coast is very common.

Border Patrol in the morning

Border Field State Park

I guess that's as far as I go in this direction
