Leaving Santa Ynez Valley

December 3rd

Santa Ynez valley is flat. But Santa Barbara is behind them there hills and the road suddenly starts to rise steeply.....



We leave the main road and take a more cycle friendly route, an historic 19th century coach road passing through scenic woodland and passing beneath the main road up on that there bridge....



Once you´ve spent nearly 2 hours and 7 miles climbing 700 vertical metres (2300 feet) it´s hard to believe signs like this....



And this....



But then this happens....



And apparently the road IS closed. And the work men absolutely refused point blank to let us pass, despite being only 50 metres from rejoining the main highway. Something about building a bridge and real danger and blah blah blah.
These guys just don´t know what real danger is.
Real danger is having to explain to Sue that with 50m to go we need to turn round, drop 700 metres, rejoin the main road and then climb back up those 700m again.

Still, gives us a chance to get the view from the top of that bridge back on to that road we took 4 hours ago....



Not gonna tell you what Sue is saying in this picture. Ooooh naughty girl. Wash your mouth out with soap....
