Our last day of doing Route 66, in my view don’t do the Los Angeles freeway system on a Saturday morning if you’re not sure of where you’re going. It can be confusing and it’s freaking really busy.
We ended up going to Eagle Rider to swap out one of the bikes due to electrical issues. From there we finally made it to Santa Monica and the official end of Route 66.
After a walk around and some obligatory photos it was time to find a motel. We ended up at one about 4km’s from the water. That night we caught the “Big Blue Bus” down to Santa Monica pier where we dined at ‘Bubba Gump’s Shrimp Co.’ A themed restaurant based on the movie ‘Forrest Gump’. Then it was another bus back to the motel, the two bus trips cost the princely sum of $1.50 each way.
