It would fit with this.

On March 11th, 2011 the Tōhoku earthquake and resulting tsunami wreaked havoc on Japan. It also resulted in the largest nuclear disaster since Chernobyl when the tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Radioactive particles were released into the atmosphere and ocean, contaminating groundwater, soil and seawater which effectively closed local Japanese fisheries (http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2013/09/24/national/fukushima-fisheries-to-resume-trial-fishing-after-samples-prove-safe/#.UpaJA5R4awE).Rather unfortunately, it has also led to some wild speculation on the widespread dangers of Fukushima radiation on the internet. Posts with titles like “Holy Fukushima – Radiation From Japan Is Already Killing North Americans (http://jeromiewilliams.com/2013/04/12/holy-fukushima-radiation-from-japan-is-already-killing-north-americans/)” and ”28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima (http://www.activistpost.com/2013/10/28-signs-that-west-coast-is-being.html)” (which Southern Fried Science has already throughly debunked (http://www.southernfriedscience.com/?p=15903) ) keep popping up on my facebook feed from well-meaning friends.
I’m here to tell you that these posts are just plain garbage. While there are terrible things that happened around the Fukushima Power Plant in Japan; Alaska, Hawaii and the West Coast aren’t in any danger. These posts were meant to scare people (and possibly written by terrified authors). They did just that, but there is a severe lack of facts in these posts. Which is why I am here to give you the facts, and nothing but the facts.

...but skepticism is good.

Half Moon Bay is the beginning of a fantastic downwind bike ride to Santa Cruz. Wide shoulders, good road, 5-20mph tailwind.

That's a very different ride going toward Half Moon Bay from Santa Cruz though. Freezing 20mph + headwind, fog, salt spray, logging trucks, drunken farm workers driving lettuce trucks, thousands of acres of stinking, rotting Brussels sprouts, the usual stuff.
Better to just stay away from there. :D

That was my regular ride for awhile. Girlfriend went to UCSC and I lived in the avenues in SF. Friday afternoon or Saturday morning I'd ride south then Sunday afternoon ride back.
