Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. One of his favorite things to do is ride his bike so his birthday wish was to be on his bike all day. We also have the bike tour bug so we thought we would tie the two together and do a home turf bike tour around San Diego!
To break up the cycling and fuel our ride we also added in two stops for some vegan treats along the way. We road our Surly Long Haul Truckers along the Pacific Highway 101 from Carlsbad all the way through Ocean Beach. Then we made our way through Point Loma, Mission Hills, Old Town, Hillcrest and North Park (we took a little more inland route home). We saw so many picturesque neighborhoods that we would probably never happen upon in our car.
The weather for late December was San Diego perfect (50s and 60s)! We ended up biking from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., just shy of 78 miles, and then capped off the day by seeing the movie American Hustle so my husband said we should call our outing the Bike Hustle! What a perfect day!
