Day 1: San Francisco to Santa Cruz

We rode 80 miles today. It was a fantastic ride!! A little wet and foggy to start but it got a lot nicer the 2nd half of the day. I made really good time and finished by 1pm. There was a fantastic tailwind for the 2nd half of the ride that helped me finish 1.5 hours earlier than expected.

Now to relax and hang out with some new friends!

Day 0: Orientation

Orientation went fairly smoothly. I got to the Cow Palace early and waited in line and made a few friends. The safety video was very funny and moving and featured Jane Lynch, Adam Lambert and many other celebs.

I asked around and found someone else who needed a tentmate and we clicked so we decided to tent together. I joined him for lunch and had a great time.

I'm ready to roll out from San Francisco tomorrow morning! The shuttle bus leaves my hotel at 4am and we ride at 6:30! Wish me luck!

I'm posting a lot more on facebook. Send me a friend request if you want to hear more and see photos!

Getting on the plane

So I'm the Southwest plane from San Diego to San Francisco about to take off. I am taking a few days in SF before the ride to relax and visit some friends. It is going to be a challenge to get enough rest while in San Francisco as it's a fantastic and busy city!

I dropped off my bike at the shipping company today. It will be ready for me Sunday morning...
