Every day is getting closer to my Bay Area ridge tour. training days are longer and more intense, riding the routes back to back with the fully loaded rig. The gear is getting dialed. I am thankful for all the support from the Bay Area community. REI Co-Op has helped immensely with a sweet 27 plus touring bike, a superlight Co-op sleeping bag and a pad. I will definitely sleep well. Camelbak from Petaluma has supplied me with a comfortable low rider hydration pack, the Skyline. I am also very appreciative from all the mental support, fellowship and faith from fellow riders, family and followers. April 19th is getting near.
