Statistically Speaking

I got out for one more ride while we were in Carmel.

On my own this time, I headed west, through wine country, to the coast. Now, I'm relying entirely on anecdotal data, but I feel comfortable in my claim that that there is a direct correlation between an areas suitability for grape cultivation and its suitability for spectacular cycling. Lucky for me.

Eventually, the road took me through 17 mile drive, which wraps around a stunning coastline, some gargantuan estates, and a few notable golf courses (including Pebble Beach and Spanish Bay). Although I'm dealing with a relatively small sample set, I would guess that this safely ranks as a world class coastal bike ride. Just to be sure though, I think I'll make an effort to get out and do some more testing of this hypothesis.

Sorry, no pictures just yet!

I have riden the 17 mile drive while down at Monterey for the sea otter classic. There is something magical about riding on a road with the ocean on one side and mountains on the other.
