This morning we left a windy and cool San Francisco. We had several navigation issues getting out of the city. We found our way out and on to highway 1. There were several hills and one long tunnel. Fortunately the tunnel had a wide shoulder. We are at a KOA campground ronight which is close to the beach.

Today was our day off. We explored the warf district and discovered that since it was fleetweek there were navy ships available for tour.

Today started out as 50 degree misty morning. Eventually the mist lifted and it turned sunny in the 60s. Occasionally fog rolled in from time to time and cooled us down.

We were unable to fix Laura's bike ourselves so she had to ride the van today. It is Sunday so the bike shops were closed. I biked with other team members. There was one hill about 1,400 ft to start our day. It gave rise to a 6 mile downhill that we really enjoyed. Lots of sun today and temp in the 60s made it a great day.
