San Fran to LA

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Friday, 8 Jul 2011 | Views [630]

City cycling. It's only fun if you're not actually trying to get anywhere. It doesn't help that everything is in Spanish. I shouldn't be surprised, California was part of Mexico once. Until [as my friend Nick says] 'The ... Read more >

The Sun that shone

The Olympic Peninsular

UNITED STATES OUTLYING ISLANDS | Saturday, 14 May 2011 | Views [504] | Comments [4]

Cycling the Sea to Sky....or the Sky to Sea

CANADA | Monday, 9 May 2011 | Views [1014] | Comments [3]
