The crowds in Monterey and on the trail have been “thick” to say the least! Awful if you want to be honest. Everyone is trying to escape the smoke in the Bay Area. We have had this sweet pocket of not so bad air and have been able to keep to our normal activities. It’s just all those darn people who haven’t been on a bike in twenty years and decide to either bring down their brand new bikes, along with the entire family, or the ones that rent the electric assist bikes and haven’t been on a bike in twenty years and are all over the place😮
Let’s just say it’s not fun……so today we ride north. We have noticed a new pedestrian/bike bridge along 156 Hwy in Castroville and decided today was the day to check it out.
We left early hoping the air would stay somewhat “ok”. Our levels have been in the moderate range Bill but a hotel will cost you about $300-400 probably!
