Cycling Cat Canyon

Saturday, May 20th

Today, the last day of our trip, we're in Solvang to do one of our favorite rides, a 60 mile route that includes Cat Canyon.  Omg, we came upon a brush fire.

We watched the firefighters take command.  It was smoky and hot, so, we didn't stick around.  Scary just being there.

I love this canyon.  Before climbing it, we had grilled cheese sandwiches and cokes at a joint in Los Alamos.  Delicious.  Our server filled our water bottles and with ice. Thank you Charlie's Restaurant.

Down we go.  Can we say, "Yay!"

It was a great ride.  We both banged it out back to the Sideways Inn in Buellton.  Wow, the Inn got a serious facelift.  Looked better than my home .... on the way back to the Bay Area on Sunday, we were diverted from 101 to some road that parallels it.  We never found out why.  We were lucky to not get stuck.  But we did when we came upon Gilroy.  Heavy traffic. Omg, that sucked.  It was really hot as well. Having a cell phone really came in handy on this trip.  It's weird how travel once was, you know back in the dark ages.  Til the next trip!
