Day 38: Ano Nuevo State Reserve to Moss Landing, CA

Miles: 54

What I rode by: boy scouts, farm laborers working late

When we were at a campground in Oregon, we met a woman who lived on a sailboat in Moss Landing (just north of Monterey). When she heard what we were doing, she invited us to spend the night in her office at the yacht club. So, our destination today was Moss Landing. But first, we had to ride through the greater Santa Cruz area. That meant a combination of Hwy 1 overlooking a number of surf spots and too many city streets. I much prefer riding on remote stretches of highway to city streets.

Near the end of the day, we came across a boy scout troop that was riding from Half Moon Bay to Disneyland! There were a total of 13 scouts and 12 adults, and a support vehicle with a big trailer. The last handful of miles zig-zagged us through fertile farmland of the Salinas Valley.
