In It To End It
Policemen from all over the Bay Area attended the walk, riding their bikes to support walkers while also keeping the peace. The San Jose officer pictured above had a jam box mounted on his bike, blasting out tunes to further motivate the walkers.
After a couple miles, a portion of the walkers had stopped for refreshments at one of the pit stops. The crowd thinning allowed me to make better time up and over the Golden Gate Bridge.
It was at this time I realized that this would be the first time I'd be entering the city via a bridge without paying a toll. After coming down from the bridge, I rode through the city in a haphazard fashion. I did not take any photos, but I plan to next time.
I got home and traced my ride using Google Maps. My calculations put the ride at just shy of twenty-nine miles. When I got home, I felt like I could have ridden another ten or even twenty miles. However, after sitting for about ten minutes, every muscle was telling me that I had chosen a nice stopping point.
I plan to ride around the city again this weekend. This time, I hope to track the ride a bit better and include better photos (from a camera rather than my iPhone).
