4 Days. 250 Miles. Gorda (Southern Big Sur) to Fillmore. Shortest day - 36 miles (when I got 2 flats within 1 hour). Longest day - 77 miles. My first bike tour (AKA bikepack). It delivered everything I hoped it would: moments of joy, moments of misery, varied terrain and environments, challenges, vistas, intense filth, surprising roadkill, sore thighs and ass, elephant seals, zebras, generous camp neighbors, highway navigation, uncomfortable traffic, steep hills, wrong turns, feelings of doubt, feelings of accomplishment. The goal was to travel 300 miles to our place in Tujunga before Thanksgiving, but unfortunately I cut it short last night so I wouldn’t miss today’s holiday. Thanks to Erika for retrieving me in Fillmore. Seeing the world at the speed of a bike is a worthwhile experience. Try it.
