Bike SF to SD with Dr. Maxwell

How many flat tire repairs does it take to bike from San Francisco to San Diego? For my boyfriend and

I over New Years, the lucky number was 10. Despite the bike maintenance needed to get from point to

point, this journey was a trip of a lifetime we both felt lucky to embark on. For almost 2 weeks, our daily

“to do” list was minimal, weather was ideal, and the only 2 options were to “Keep pedaling, or keep

pedaling.” We were rewarded for our efforts with stunning ocean views. Wildlife was plentiful as well,

as we crossed paths with elephant seals, whales, deer, turkey, and even one skunk. A trip highlight was

coming across other touring bikers along the lonely Highway 1 and sharing adventure stories. Peter, a

cyclist from Bellingham, WA, was biking across the entire west coast barefoot! It wasn’t exactly the best

ergonomic set up, but he found a way to push through and enjoy every mile. I found myself grateful

by Day 3 as I cycled up the hills of Big Sur that I had been adjusted and treated with Active Release

Techniques by my own chiropractor before the trip. Though our quads were aching and fatigued by the

end of the trip, to be able to pass the sign “Welcome to San Diego,” and be greeted with the hugs of

friends was quite emotional. I hope each of you are able to complete a physical goal of your own this

year, and we at FitWell will be here to help in any way we can!
