The weather was awesome today.
We said our good-byes to Mary Lou and left 'the Toaster' just after lunch.
The wind was strong but it was mostly a cross or tail wind, and sometimes we'd go round a bend in the road and suddenly it would feel like we were flying.
Aside from a couple of problems with my rear derailleur, that I think now I have finally fixed, the ride from Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz went like a dream. The road followed the beautiful coastline all the way down, and with a large shoulder there was plenty of room to ride on the road.
It only took us about three hours of riding, and in the afternoon we rolled into Santa Cruz, a really cool looking beach town.
