Today’s Miles: 30
Total Miles: 4715.04

That’s all folks.

Today’s ride started well-fueled thanks to Jan and Jim. They gave me plenty of fruit and carbs for breakfast.

I followed my route down the coast a little bit (and over a pretty gnarly climb). But, we’ll call that the last climb of the trip. Worth it.

I went by Torrey Pines and then after that it seemed like I was turning every half mile. That’s not that big of an issue, but when I have to keep on stopping to consult my map it gets quite warm…..

Down some roads, up some hills, back down, and along a long bike path I arrived to meet my parents at a park.

4,715 miles later I got the chance to dip my front tire in the Pacific Ocean after doing the same to my rear tire three months earlier.
