I don’t keep old bikes. It’s become a bit of a problem really, but every year about this time I get involved in “the shuffle”. I sell my race bike in order to buy a new one for the next season. This year I sold my Trek Portland rain bike making way for my new Baron. My wife is convinced it all makes for a very complex money drain, but somehow it all seems to work out.
Best known for its aquarium, Jazz festival, Steinbeck, and Cannery Row, Monterey also has an impressive bike path that’s a central tourist activity. We rode it on Saturday to the Lighthouse and back. For tourism, it’s high on the list, but just for riding, Santa Barbara still has the best we’ve ridden.
