Dave’s American Photo Album – Carmel to Pismo Beach
Dave’s American diary – Carmel to Pismo Beach
Yesterday, I made the drive from Carmel to Pismo Beach, one of the West Coast’s most famous areas.
Like the journey to Carmel from San Francisco, the route was straightforward with only around three hours to ride so I decided to make a couple of stops.
I hoped to make the trip via a 17-mile stretch of road between Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove.
Unfortunately, when I hit the iconic stretch of road, two security guards stopped me in my tracks.
Apparently that stretch of road, one of the ones you’d really love to ride as you’re flanked by the Pacific on one side and mountains on the other, was not open to motorbike riders.
So I spun my Harley round and headed down the less scenic path towards Pismo, riding past Laguna Seca and with my first McDonalds en route.
