Pigeon Point

Last weekend I went on a trip to Pigeon Point with Piaw and others. We biked from the valley to the coast, staying in the Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel for a night. The scenery was gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for better weather. In all I traveled about 110mi.

(More details about the trip, and links to photos, can be found on Piaw's trip report.)

I've been finding biking to be quite a meditative experience. Whether I'm climbing or descending I find it's difficult to think about anything but the present. Getting into the proper rhythm really helps to clear the mind.

By the way, if you live in the Bay Area and have never stayed at the lighthouse, the hot tub overlooking the ocean is simply transcendent.
