Awesome

Awesome report, and excellent pictures. I love the fog pictures. One of my best memories is an early morning ride at Pismo Beach with thick fog. All we could see was headlights through the mist.

As I set off preparing for my ride today I remarked to myself how auspicious the beginnings were. Or inauspicious, I can never remember which is which. I have always believed the foundation of a...
