Hit the Road


1500 Miles into San Francisco

OK, so we actually passed the 1500 mile mark yesterday, but frankly it was a rotten rainy day so we saved it for today for the better photo.

The Golden Gate Bridge peaks out of the morning fog in the San Francisco Bay. It’s mid-week and still the bridge is awash with cyclists. The whole west pedestrian side is reserved for bikes these days, and it’s a must-see activity when visiting the city to hire bikes and “Bike the Bridge”.

The ride isn’t over yet though, we get a few days in San Francisco to recharge our batteries and then we set off for the remaining 500 or so miles to San Diego.

I have it on good authority that San Francisco is nice and flat, so it shouldn’t be too much trouble getting about. That’s right, isn’t it…?

    Looks great crossing the bridge. Sound a bit strange to say “only” 500mls to go.

    Hello Peter & Ian

    Have been following your adventure on twitter but have just been on website to view your photos. (mums instructions) Excellent!! Guess this beats working 9 till 5? Hope the ride down to San Diego is just as good and the sights are as impressive as you are used to. Take care, keep safe and have fun.
