Day 1 - The break in

Today Randy and I began our day at 8am. We started with a cup of coffee then we went on a walk (2 miles up hill) to pick up our bikes. When we arrived there, our bikes were together (for the most part). The people there were very nice in assisting us with some final construction of the bicycles. We then road a few miles through San Francicso to REI to pick up a few things we needed. After that, we went back to the hotel to check out and load our bags on our bikes. Once are bags were secure on our bikes we were hardly able to pick them up they were so heavy. We began to ride through San Francisco and a few other small towns. We got to ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and boy, was it windy! The weather here is great so far and we look forward to the ride. After crossing the bridge, we headed to Larkspur, where we are staying with a friend of mine from church. On our way here we met five students from UCONN's med school who are riding from San Francisco, CA to Connecticut. We hope to catch up with them tomorrow and have some company on the ride. People here are great and I had the opportunity to talk to a few people about what we are doing. I look forward to the days to come and cant wait to tell you all about them! Thanks for your support!
