More Traffic

2015-04-04

tl;dr: I biked from LA through Malibu to Point Mugu State Park. I hate traffic.

I don't really feel like writing much today.

I continued up the coast. Eventually running out of beach bike lanes, I was forced back onto the highway. The highway had a shoulder, but it was constantly clogged by parked vehicles.

There were a lot of surfers today. But there was no wind. The surfers looked sad.

Stopping for lunch, I met another guy named Alex touring his way south. We swapped stories for a bit. He is a professor and takes advantage of school breaks to bike tour.

My bike is making even more strange noises. I called ahead and a bike shop in Camarillo said they were familiar with my Alfine 8 hub and could take a look at it early next week.

Eventually I came to Point Mugu State Park, which has a bike road that leads up away from the highway into the mountains. It would be a slighly longer ride into Camarillo, but I am already too early, and this is much better than the highway.

I am so tired of highway traffic.

good morning partial eclipse


good morning industry


good morning police takedown
