That is California: I woke up among cool dudes on the rocks
and went to sleep among cool dudes on boards, in between there are 200 miles of heat and dust and golden hills. (Ok, could probably be France as well).
I cheated of course,I could never have cycled that distance in one day, public transport got me out of Yosemite valley and into Santa Cruz. I find it even more impressive that it is possible to do so by public transport in the motherland of cars. Again I used Amtrak, this time the San Joaquin line and a Amtrak Thru bus making the connection from the railway to Silicon valley in combination with YARTS.
