The ocean on the right

This morning in Fallbrook we all posed for a group photo. Ralph Elliott, whose family started this ride 56 years ago, said a few words about the route. One of the things he said was 'when you reach the ocean, turn. Make sure the ocean stays on your right!'

Today we rode in packs, giddy to be almost done. When riders saw the ocean and the pier in Oceanside, there was whooping that made the locals turn and look.

We stopped for coffee and pastry in Encinitas. We stopped for Baja fish tacos at the original Rubio's.

And then, we stopped at the finish.


  1. I love that photo - all those textures! And the blue!

    1. It's the NEW CAMERA! And hey, click on the photo to see the large version with the surfers...
