Half Moon Bay by bike again

Back about 7 years ago, I did my first bikepack to the hiker/cyclist site at Francis Beach. https://alpharoaming.com/2015/08/02/bicycle-camping-bikepacking-half-moon-bay-via-kings-mountain-road-purisima-creek/ A few days ago, I did it again for about the 4th time!

It was about 95 degrees as we chugged up Kings Mountain Road, but the relief as we coasted down the other side was great! (I had forgotten how reasonable and consistent the grade up Kings Mountain is…versus Old La Honda Road!)

Weasels in the campsite!
Burgers and beer at Sacrilege!
Tent, without the rain fly. The beach is just over those dunes.
The “flat bridge” on TCR, which is the secret route to the lost jet engine! https://alpharoaming.com/2014/02/11/plane-crash-site/
A neglected Citroen. I think it’s a Citroen SM, with the Maserati V-6.
Yes, a soggy Whopper and a beverage bottle with jelly beans inside!
No firewood? How about burning trash, a roll of T.P., and an unused club sign-in sheet? (Not my idea!)

That’s about it! 25F degrees cooler, and a few wacky antics in camp. Don’t avoid paying the $7 camping fee, or the Camp Host might ask you to leave in the morning! Ask me who didn’t join us for breakfast! (They do have a problem with an occasional homeless visitor and theft. Secure your bike! I laid mine down next to the tent, and put two tent poles thru the frame.)
