BEACH GLASS: A Photo Story

If you ride in Santa Monica, CA, you might recognize this tunnel. It's our way home after riding the Malibu Mountains and a place we find ourselves daily. 

We traverse the stairs often, but never pause or venture onto the beach itself. After a hot and brutal ride the cool water looks so inviting but is often left for another day, passed over for post-ride responsibilities.

Rolling through one evening we caught a flat tire from a shard of beach glass. Forced to pause for a while, we headed out into the sand and stuck our toes in the water. Sometimes a flat tire is all you need to stop and take a look around.
