A couple of days ago I joined Direction Action Everywhere for a protest outside a Chipotle Restaurant in Oakland. Chipotle spends millions to promote an image of caring about the animals they are killing. They are taking advantage of people’s sympathy toward animals by giving the impression that their products are humane. See this Salon article for more details.
After leaving WorldFest in Los Angeles, I decided to experience California’s central coast on the way to the Bay Area, instead of taking the interstate. Good choice. Santa Barbara, Morro Bay, Big Sur, and Monterey were all stunning beautiful. This picture is near San Simeon.
I finally scanned the pictures from my 1995 PAC tour ride. Over 60 of us rode over 2800 miles from San Diego to Charleston in 23 days – an average of 123 miles a day. My family, Doreen, and some friends at work came to see me and wish me well when we stopped in Florence Alabama.
The pictures are posted to my smugmug site and can be seen here.
After riding across the Golden Gate Bridge and back, I decided to pedal to Daly City to the bus terminal. My plan was to take the bus back to Foster City. I took a side route along the coastal “Great Highway”, where I sometimes had to walk the Brompton over the sand drifts. I came across Fort Funston and took a picture.
