Bike/surf adventurers on the road

Yesterday I ran across these four people on bikes in point Reyes Station. They are: Robin Hill, Abe Greenspan (in the photo), Robin’s dad Tyler Hill, and Chanel Walker. Since leaving South Lake Tahoe, they’ve been on the road for three weeks, heading south from the Oregon border, following the ocean down to Cabo San Lucas. Here’s their blog:

“About the Ride

In September 2011, fellow surf stylist and adventure extraordinaire, Abe Greenspan and my self (Robin Hill) will embark on an epic 3 month adventure, biking down the pacific coast surfing in Baja Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. This trip is inspired by a love for adventure, and a humble appreciation for the ocean and a simple life on the road.…”

  1. Good for them. They will really get to see the country that way. We have a friend that lives full time on Powell Lake. He tried to ride his bike pulling a trailer across Canada. Unfortunately he looks a bit scruffy, so his reception in many places was very negative. After someone destroyed his camp (including his tent) he hopped a train and rode the rails home from Ontario. He is the nicest man. Too bad some people judge others by their looks, not their actions. – Margy

  2. Sounds like a sweet trip – and that's an impressive looking trailer. I've never gone down through Central America, but when I do longer trips, I always go on my folding bike in case I need to take a bus or something…it's a lot easier to get the bike on the bus when it folds.
