The Rock Store’s the more famous place to bike-watch and nosh in the Santa Monica mountains, but if it’s a truly tasty fiesta you’re after, you need to keep riding through Malibu’s crazy maze of canyons on over to the coast. Yerba Buena Road will deposit you right into the `Net’s parking lot on Pacific Coast Highway, one of the first places the old salts brought me way back in the old Cycle magazine days. Order up some fresh fish tacos, the ever-popular fish and chips, the old-standby cheeseburger or some fried calamari… pull up a chair on the front porch and take it all in: bikers, surfers, the Ferraris of the rich and famous. The good life, basically.
