About 90% of the ride was immediately beachside (or, perhaps more accurately, rockside). Most of the rest was still in water view, if not adjacent to the coast. Due in part to time constraints and in part to the lack of towns worth stopping in, they made it in a tad over 3 hours. According to the travel guide, 98% of the biking is on ...
