Kite surfers everywhere! Holla. Ventura.
[Edit: We reached Carpinteria, CA, when our hosts called. Frank, the father of Anne’s good friend Nichole, was concerned that we would only reach Santa Barbara at night. We were aware that we would, but at this point, we’ve biked at night before and were happy to bike the last 14 miles. After all, it was only 14 miles! Eventually, we decided to meet halfway, in the town of Summerland, CA. The total ended up being 48 miles for the day–respectable, especially considering the 40-50 mph headwinds we faced, and that we went on hike for most of the morning!]
