45 milesThis was one of the more beautiful rides. The weather was just perfect for the setting: a bit of fog and some overcast which created a moody backdrop to the scenic drama. The elevation gain of around 2300' somehow didn't quite do the climbing justice but the GPS doesn't lie. We left Monterey via the bike path and completed its length around the peninsula. I should have mentioned far earlier in the blog that you can enlarge the photo images with a double-click.
