We need these signs in Toronto
After lunch I had a 900ft climb into Lompoc, but it was right at the end of my ride so I didn't mind.
As an aside, you might have noticed that I'm a terrible tourist. For me, going on long bike tours is primarily about setting a target and seeing if I can reach it. I enjoy the physical challenge and transformation that takes place, the mental cleansing from the solitude, and taking in what the trip presents. I almost never go out of my way to hit a landmark or check out an attraction, I'm happy to absorb my surroundings as they unfold.
I mention this because I've been getting a bunch of suggestions about places to see and things to check out, and I'm probably not going to do any of them. This might make for a boring way to travel for some, but for me it's been immensely satisfying.
So, I hope you enjoy these pics from another day where nothing particularly interesting happened -

The missing apostrophe was one of a few things I found disturbing about this sign. In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't take a detour to see what this was all about.
