Leaving the Veterans Memorial Park I started cycling to Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. Concentrating on the cycling I'd not a lot to write about today.

Cycling to Pfeiffer Big Sur
(Blog post written October 26 2009 – Part of my bicycle tour Alaska to Argentina)
Another exit from a city cycling without any maps, although thankfully, Highway One is now a highway again rather than an Interstate, which made life easier.
I stopped off in Carmel to restock and briefly use the internet, and then got going proper at about 11.00. Just a short day's cycling of 30 miles, with awesome scenery and some challenging hills.
It was a another bright and sunny one also, which made me feel like I had really earned my bottle of wine that day when I finished at Pfeiffer Big Sur!
