Hah, back from the dead this ride report is! Congrats Cycles. Big Sur is gorgeous. Don't forget to stop and smell the roses. There's a nice straight bit of road at Point Sur where I like to pull over, have a stretch, and enjoy the view...it's not the most picturesque part of the PCH, but for some reason I really like that spot. Glad you were made whole, found closure, and moved on...and I'm jealous of that new bike of yours! Enjoy it!
