    Our first stop, Pigeon Point Lighthouse outside of San Francisco. Despite the sense that it's aging, rust covered and about ready to fall over any second, it's really a pretty lighthouse.

    As always, we had a great bunch of riders on this tour, and also some familiar faces.

    Peter & wife Lori out from Missouri

    Greg came up from LA. Dave was here from Florida- for a whole month.

    And that bald chinese guy you keep seeing in the pics is Billy, our season pass holder next to Mark- 3rd, 4th, 5th tour, something like that.

    Bob who is a familiar face with Pashnit Tours, was reunited with his brother Tom who flew out from North Carolina. They had planned for riding together for another week after our tour.

    See that rusting wire on the top of the lighthouse? Placard there says after iron banding fell off a few years back, they put that 'band-aid' on temporarily to hold the lighthouse together.

    Also joined by Craig for the 2nd time. Mark dragged him along a few weeks back on the NorCal Tour, and here he is again. Hooked I think.

    Like this pic (of Craig). Although my mom always told me not to look into the sun.

    All these years of photographing the ocean really don't even begin to capture it properly.

    No idea what type of plants these are. Cool though.

    Did something a bit unusual and handed the key to the Hayabusa to Billie.

    We swapped bikes and I rode this for 2 days. Yes, different in every sense of the word!

    California Big Sur Coastline - this pic pretty much sums up why it's so famous.
