Yesterday I spent the day at Bay Area Bikes getting my bike outfitted with everything we will need for the trip, so when I got home I did some preliminary packing. Everything we are going to need fits really well, with plenty of room to spare. Today Ill head up to Oakland to learn a little bit from Clay about fixing the bike on the road. Im having a great time cruising around San Francisco, except for yesterday when I rode up California Street, with a fully loaded bike and about 40 pounds of extra gear (which Im shipping home). I had to stop once on the way up, fortunately there isn’t going to be many climbs like that on our trip.
