If yesterday was a slog uphill into the wind to find there was no room to pitch our tent, today was our reward.
This was the kind of ride every cyclist dreams of: gently rolling, mostly downhill, a great road surface, beautiful scenery and a slight wind at our back!

(Probably not going to see a readout like this one often on this trip!)
|Cows are always interested as we pass|
Lunch in Hollister was followed by a return to the fields, farms and fruit trees. Boy, do we grow a lot of food in California. Today we passed lots of cherry trees, planted in neat rows and chevrons.
|I love the patterns that the rows and columns produce as you go by|
|I promise, this dirt looked really rich and dark when I shot it!|
|Hosts with the mosts! Bob and Kris|
Bob has a "bike bathroom" with memorabilia from his years of cycling. I've included a couple of pictures.
