Bicycling Across America 2017 – Day 1

Breakfast started early at 6am so we could get an early start between 6:30 and 7am. I had oatmeal with strawberries. 

We started riding at 6:50am 

We worked our way thru San Diego to our first rest stop at mile 26 and the second rest area at mile 34 in a pull off on the expressway. 

We continued going up with grades varying from 4% to 11%. The lunch Stop shown below in the park was pretty and at the end of the climb at elevation 5,900 feet. We then had some nice downhills with a few uphills. 

We then came into the old gold mining town of Julian where I had some craft beer and thinking of having their famous apple pie.  

The hotel was great. 

The apple pie was great. 

Here is an interview from Paul on today’s ride.
