Hello ES peoples from Fort Bragg, CA.
I left San Rafael at 6 AM heading out on Sir Frances Drake Blvd, all the way to Hwy 1 at Point Reyes by 7 AM, then proceded northward. The weather was damp, foggy, overcast, chilly, blazing hot, bright sunny, windy, and blustery, often within the same mile. It was slow going; great for a bike! Mostly light traffic, good road conditions and margins most of the time, and the same can be said about the drivers ~ except those Lexas SUVs: They were mosty buttheads.
Got to speak to many folks. Enjoyed spectacular scenery, got some pics.
The wind though really affected my progress and I kept my speed slow to extend the pack. But 11 hours on a bike is rough no matter how you sugar-coat it.
Distance today = 165.3 miles. Total trip Odometer is now 1754 miles over 22 days.
AveS = 23.8; pokey
Tomorrow I hope to make Eureka. Bike still has grinding noise but now I (think I) know what is going on and will affect a fix to it soon.
Tired & ready for my shower, then food, then z z z
