Surf ‘n Turf Tour, Day 1

The California Bicycle Coalition’s Santa Barbara to San Diego Surf ‘n Turf Tour kicked off this morning.

The Halloween rain storm added drama and puddles at the start. We had a little rain, just enough to claim bragging rights, otherwise it was a brisk and beautiful day for this inaugural bicycle tour.

Ed France and several members of the local Santa Barbara County Bicycle Coalition joined us for this first leg.

The Pedego City Commuter

eBike on the ride: the Pedego City Commuter

Pedego Electric Bikes sponsored the ride and they lent me a beautiful, bronze-colored City Commuter. It attracted a lot of attention from the mostly skinny-tire group.

How far does that battery last?

I can say it lasted all 45 miles of this rigorous first day, up Casitas Pass to the Lake and down to Ventura, with plenty of power to spare.
