from San Francisco to LA, summer 1997
graduating from Berkeley Casey rode from Berkeley to Tustin with a few
others who lived at Cloyne. Keith and Kevin organized the trip, Nedís
girlfriend drove the truck so we didnít have to carry anything, and
Jeremy rode when he could but was sick for part of the trip.
The first day we rode from Berkeley to my parentís house in Felton via
Page Mill Road and Highway 9. It was the first 100 plus mile day for all
of us. The next day we rode to Monterey and camped at a city park. Day 3
found us riding in Big Sur, my favorite day of all, and camping at Kirk
Creek overlooking the Pacific Ocean. That night, around midnight, we
piled in the truck and drove about 15 minutes north and paid $20 each to
soak in the famous Esalen hot springs. We made it all the way to San
Luis Obispo on day 4, the longest ride of the trip and stayed with
Nedís father and sister. On day 5 we rode to Santa Barbara via Lake
Cachuma and stayed with my aunt. We struggled up the hills but were
rewarded with a super long downhill going into town. We made it to
Culver City on day 6 and stayed with some friends of Kevin and on day 7
we road up the driveway of Keithís parents house in Tustin. The next
day we went for a mountain bike ride.
