It was overcast when we started, which was lovely. The overcast burned off by the time we reached the beach. The Crema was out of baguettes so I settled for a quiche and a spinach and cheese croissant. Greg and Stacy are both on a weird no-grains diet so they had bacon and eggs. I must say their diet contradicts everything I've ever learned about losing weight, but I think we can all agree it's working for them.

By the time we reached Duarte it was 90F and we were cooking.I was more interested in re-hydration than nutrition and struggling with a headache.
The headwind back to the beach wasn't too bad, thank goodness, but the heat was oppressive. At Chronic Tacos I tried "Beyond Meat" that I've heard so much about. The only way you would think it tastes like meat is if you had never tasted meat. I took maybe four bites before I set it aside in disgust.
During the ride, the spring on my aerobar's elbow pad broke again. I used my tiny bungee cord to stop the pad flopping around until I got home. I have spare springs from when it broke last time, but decided to replace them with spare aerobars I had bought for Lejog. These aerobars have the advantage of being PBP compatible. Stacey is trying to convince me to do PBP in four years. I must be mad.
At least they'll have baguettes!
