Dodged a bullet…so far

20110605-114148.jpg

It’s been an epic beginning to an epic journey. I’m writing this from the lunch stop at San Gregorio Beach, at mile 45, a beautiful spot to enjoy a little rest and some lunch.

So far the skies have been threatening, but dry. The worst of the days hills are behind us, and everyone I meet seems in great spirits. And I have been meeting people, as I somehow got separated from the group.

Today’s Opening Ceremonies at the Cow Palace included a wonderful surprise: ALC 10 has raised $14 million, a record-breaking amount. I had some time to reflect on the growth and maturation of this event over the years. ALC 1 had so few riders that I actually made a wrong turn on Day 1; there’s no chance of that happening today.
