#SD2KW | We Made It. Our Bikes Made It. Ride Starts Tomorrow!

Yesterday and today our goal was to get to San Diego with bods and bikes in tact. Done and Done. ✅ ✅

Two on-time and comfortable flights on Southwest brought us to San Diego and we were even greeted by a rainbow.

As luck would have it, we scored one of Uber’s top 10 drivers in the nation. #NotEvenJoking

We met our first friend of the trip not on bikes but in an Uber. Since Porfirio has picked up well over 23,000 fares I considered asking him for his business card in case we need a lift up and over the Tecate Divide in a couple days. Instead he asked for our blog address card which we happily gave him.

Bikes came through travel without a hitch and in no time Tom had them reassembled and lubed up. We put bike bags on and decided we deserved a burrito for all of our efforts.

After Mass on Wednesday morning which happens to be Tom’s birthday 🥳 we took a stroll through Historic Old Town which took up most the morning until we did a little shake out bike ride to the start line where we will begin tomorrow at the Pacific Ocean, dip our rear tires in the water and then begin riding east.

There’s a bit of planning, a little luck and a lot of working together to get to the start of a 3,400 mile bike ride. And even more to reach the end. We’re ready to launch!

    1. Tish!!! So great to hear from you. I’ve no doubt our Guardian Angels can keep up, especially today since we have a big, big climb but we will for sure be counting on help from Sts. Michael and Raphael. Thanks for checking in with us and let our faith friends at CtK know we are thinking about them.😘

  3. At this early hour I do not know how this email found my inbox but I am glad it did. I love to bike tour and you are beginning juts a few blocks from my house. If you need any tips or tricks in San Diego let me know. Have a great tour. I know you will. No better way to travel. I’m currently planning a Great Lakes tour for this spring.

    1. Lol I have no idea how you received it either because I can’t subscribe people but I’m happy you received it too. We are rolling out today but have really liked our stay in Old Town. The vegetation is 💯 along with the nice peeps. Would love to follow your GL tour if you post and we are in Indy if you make a stop. Make it a great day, Luke! ☀️
