Anyhow, after I had had my little break at Temescal Canyon, where I discovered that the name of the little eatery is Watch By The Bay and it only takes cash... I was approached by a young man and his friend asking me how much further it was to Malibu. They were were cycling from Huntington Beach to Sacramento. They'd already done 70 miles. Quite frankly, I thought it was about 17, which is what I told them (was more like 11-12). When I told them, they were very excited... perhaps they thought it was further than it was.
I told them I wanted their picture for my blog and for everyone here. Nice young men, Michael Troyer and Ryan Snider of Huntington Beach.

Strange that my encounter with them was so brief and yet somehow they just made my day! I think these two ought to try a bike trip across America some day. Michael and Ryan, if you read this some day, please comment below!
