Surf/Cycle from California to Mexico and Beyond

Greetings,
A friend and I are about to embark on a cycle tour this week. We are starting in Monterey, California and heading out with bikes, trailers and surfboards. We are heading down the coast to surf, camp, and explore. We would love to meet people along the way and grab a shower here and there. .

Hey!!

My name is Rio and I'm planning on leaving the bay area on a tour down to costa rica!! I wont be leaving for another 2 weeks though :/... But if you girls are still on the road it would be great to meet along the way.. I'm solo so far and just looking for friends to cycle with.. Have a great time, and i hope to see you on the road, Cheers!

Hey Rio

Hey Rio,
Thanks for the reply. I am in LA right now and will be hanging between here and San Diego for a bit so maybe you will catch up! I am continuing on my own because Caroline is catching a flight out of LA. I would love to find someone to travel with through Mexico. Let me know what you are thinking about for timing and maybe we can link up along the way!
Cheers, Eva

Hey Eva, I'm planning on

Hey Eva,

I'm planning on leaving Fairfax (just north of San Francisco) on 3/17/2014.... So exactly 2 weeks from today, and I've got a bit to catch up so I understand if you can't wait until then.... I'm planning on being in LA by the 27th at the latest.. I would also very much like someone to travel with through Mexico... That would be great to link up if possible.. My plan is to go to Costa Rica, and since I'm solo and have friends who are already in southern mexico, I was considering cheating and taking some buses along the way.. Id prefer not to but biking solo through long stretches of desert might entice me to do so... At any rate let's stay in touch, and if its meant to be we'll meet up on the road! If you are having trouble finding a place to stay in LA I have family there, and my mother would surely be open to hosting you if I tell her that you may be a road companion of mine in mexico.. (She's been a little worried of me going solo) Anyways thanks for the reply... Cheers!

Thanks so much for offering a

Thanks so much for offering a place to stay in LA. I'm staying with some friends right now in Huntington Beach an heading to Laguna tomorrow. Yea my family would definitely be excited if I found someone to go with through Mexico too. As for timing I just found out that I am going to be working on a farm near Escondido for a week or perhaps several depending on if it all works out so who knows, maybe timing will be perfect! Yea just keep in touch. If you need any camping spots or questions about the cycle let me know!
Cheers

Thanks! Are you WWOOFing?

Thanks! Are you WWOOFing? I've been planning on joining WWOOF before I leave so that I can stop on farms along the way... I figured WWOOF and Warm showers would kind of be like the dots along the road to stop at... Not to mention learning about organic farming would be a sweet skill to learn on this venture. Anyways I'll keep you posted on my location, and if I need camping/road tips! Cheers!

Yep, I signed up for

Yep, I signed up for wwoofing. I did some in New Zealand and loved it! It's a great way to see a place and meet locals...and not to mention learn about organic farming! The one I am going to check out is a permaculture farm near Oceanside that has workshops so I am pretty excited to learn. Most places are looking for you to work for at least a week or two. I did some warmshowers along the way and had great experiences.

Hey Eva!

I'm in Santa Barbara... I should be in Los Angeles the day after tomorrow, where I'll need to rest a few days and catch up with my family.. Then I'm on my way south! I'm thinking I'll head out of LA around the first or second of april, and it should take me 2-3 days to bike to SD.. So roughly Id say I could make to San Diego by the 5th or 6th... I will give you a call from LA when I have a better idea.. Its been an amazing ride so far! Hope the farm has been good! My number is (310)955-6382 if you need to contact me for any reason as well... Talk soon!

Hey Chechu,

My name is Rio and I'm planning on meeting Eva in San Diego around the 6th of April.... I'm currently in LA as well, and my plan is to leave here on the 3rd to make it to S D by the 6th.... We would probably cross soon after the 6th I would imagine.. I have yet to meet Eva or her friends who may be coming as well.. I have 2 friends who are considering joining as well. Send me a message if you want to link up and ride to San Diego together! Cheers
