Then we drove back to Joshua Tree to say hi to Dan and Cindy and to pick up our bikes. Inspired by other bike travellers who rented U-hauls for their bikes (and themselves) when they wanted to travel to or through an area that was either far or didn’t have great infrastructure, we rented a truck to drive ourselves and our bikes from Joshua Tree to LA.
Yes, that is a saw blade.
We were welcomed warmly by warm showers hosts Mathis and Donna. And delighted to go for a hike with them and their puppies.
After a lovely visit, we said goodbye to Mathis and Donna.
We stopped for groceries just as it started to rain. As the rain got stronger, we were grateful for shelter and continued to hang out outside Ralph’s, in Malibu.
And this morning the traffic was light, the views were spectacular, and there were lots of other people out riding their bikes.
Yesterday’s rains might have been responsible for the campground flooding.
Luckily a few kilometres away, in Ventura, Leslie, another amazing Warm Showers host was happy to welcome us at the last minute.
Hope everyone is having a great March Break!
