Sunday's 20-mile route
We met this morning at 6:45am to start our route at 7:00. We went over the safety speech, and Linda read from a wonderful, inspirational book. It was a day of many miles, many hills, which ranged from 50 degrees to 75 degrees.
Group Circle to start the day
Group Photo at the beginning of Day 2!
It was a cold and foggy morning in Golden Gate Park. It was so foggy that we had a hard time reading the signs! The fog cleared up once we had reached our first break around mile 4.

Peggy has such a way with words
At last, a picture with Joe, our Moto Safety Guy!
We left our break at UCSF and continued on into the Forest Hills neighborhood. The sun started to come out, and the layers started to come off.

While we were walking along 18th street, we saw Joe in line for ice cream at Bi-Rite Creamery! Busted!
Joe is a super nice guy - he brought ice cream to share!

Today's temps when we finished. Pretty warm by San Francisco standards. It's the end of Indian Summer
not sure who took this photo, but I really love this one. This was after we conquered a series of hills around mile 6 today.
Tomorrow, we meet at 7:15 for Day 3. 15 more miles to go!
