Day 5 - San Simeon to Pismo Beach/Oceano - 60 Miles

Breakfast burritos served on the beach, then a relatively easy ride with very little hills to speak of. I used today's ride as a "recovery ride", trying to keep my heart rate around 125.

The first three hours was in the cold, misting fog through Cambria, Cayucos, and Morrow Bay.

Once through the Morrow Bay State Park, our route then turned inland into the Los Osos Valley. The biggest climb was Turri Road, 250 vertical feet over 2 miles.
Rolled into the Oceano campground just before 1 pm, successfully completing day 5. Ride time 4 hours: 10 minutes, 60 miles, average speed 14.6 MPH, average heart rate 125, total ascent 1699 feet, total Calories 2214.
