In anticipation of our upcoming journey to the subcontinent–and as an excuse to get away for a few glorious days on the coast–Rick and I headed to Half Moon Bay just before Halloween. We met up with our friend Kathy, then the good folks from wheeledmigration.com and embarked on a quick three-day bike tour down to Santa Cruz.
Ryan and his group at Wheeled Migration put together a great concept with the Slow Coast Tour. In addition to marking a great touring route, they also organized visits to several organic farms and related businesses, highlighting many of the progressive cultivation methods that are gaining popularity in the region.
For me it was not just about great food and drink and a chance to meet a new crew of bike tourists…it was also a chance to work out a few bugs with my bike and bag system, my camera gear, and my clothing before embarking on the India adventure.
Rick shot a ton of stuff for Wheeled Migration, but I also managed to get my camera out on a couple of occasions and got a few compelling images of an old Huffy that was parked in a barn at the Bike Hut near Tunitas Creek.
