After 17 days of quiet villages & unspoiled scenery, it's back to bumper-to-bumper traffic again after first riding along Tomales Bay, leaving Hwy 1 at Pt. Reyes Station. Fairfax, Larkspur, Corte Madera, Sausalito, then the Golden Gate Bridge and into "The City". The 53-mile day marks my 14th day riding in the last 15 days. I'll spend the next week with my wonderful, supportive family before returning for 11 more days to complete my Mexico-or-Bust quest.
....and then it started to pour, and it poured for the 30 minutes it took me to find cover in Lagunitas.
