As if we needed another reason to ride bikes…

It’s official, the best way to make new friends is by riding a bike. 

It seems like everyone we come across wants to know what we’re doing and why we’re doing it. We have already met so many friendly people, and we’re only a week in! People are super keen on giving us directions, cheering us on, and helping us find the cheapest places to stay. 

We met this jovial restaurateur in Lompoc, CA. He made us feel really special because he was so interested in our story!Image
