Today was a day to sleep in and recover.
Today was a day to sleep in and recover. Last night there was a terrific dinner at the Aquarium, and the tenters had a chance to sleep with the sharks! For those of us in the hotels, it was sleep in..... and for me - pack up.
A short trip to Bike Newport - the sponsors of the ride and the mechanics supporting the ride - revealed a fabulous bike shop with full bike support services, showers, lounge and terrific local coffee! Elliot and Darren have been a terrific road support team and also the receivers and shippers of bikes. I said good bye once again to mine to have it shipped to San Francisco for the next part of the journey - a trip down the California Coast.
There are a few diehard riders who will travel down to Brookings on Friday then jump in a van and drive to San Francisco for the Saturday ride - gotta love the dedication to the Arthritis Foundation!
For me it is a few days of rest and then more fun! Thanks again for everyone's support - it makes the hills smaller and the ride shorter knowing there are many people cheering us on!
