Biking the Monterey Peninsula

While I was in Monterey, California for the conference, I took a few vacation days to see the sights.

Monterey Peninsula

My favorite day off was when I rented a bicycle, and rode all day long on the Monterey Bay Coastal Bike Trail.

This was one of the best bike rides I’ve been on in a long time. Just gorgeous scenery to look at while riding along the trail.

The drier coastal climate has very different vegetation, compared to what I know in Wisconsin.

The weather that day was perfect for biking — mostly sunny and a high of about 65 (F).

You know you’re in California when you see people surfing the waves.

I took a LOT of pictures on this bike ride. I’ll post some more in a few days.

  3. Hi Jon,
    Glad to see you enjoyed California. Must have been a fun bike ride. Here in Minneapolis today we are having gorgeous weather too. It’s been about 70 degrees the last few days. Thanks for the postcard! Happy halloween!
