What does the Foxen Say
? Day 4 was spent retracing some of the same roads I took on the way north. In that respect it was a bit anticlimactic, but I had some time to look around and see some things i didn't see before. We had some early offshore winds that caused some havoc in the peloton. A lot of people are riding deep section carbon wheels that are hard to handle in a cross wind, and early yesterday, that was the case.

Our group broke up along the road but we made good time to our lunch stop in Los Olivos. Then climbed up through Solvang and then onto the 101 for a not very pleasant ride into Santa Barbara. All in, about 115 miles.
BTW, the Fox says... wine, wine, wine....
Day 5 takes us to Malibu along almost flat roads. Forecasts are for some strong winds... that could change things.
