Is the "Bike the Bay" the same thing as the old "Tour of Five Cities"?
(five minute break/intermission)
Just went upstairs and checked my T-shirt from the ride, (and I'd have to lose a whole lot of weight before I can wear that shirt again). The shirt says "Grand Bicycle Tour of Five Cities" and "1982". Above the graphics, (graphics show the bridge, the Hotel del, a palm tree, a bike rider on a ten speed, and the downtown skyline), are "San Diego - Coronado - Imperial Beach - Chula Vista - National City". I remember we went over the Coronado Bridge, through Coronado, down the isthmus, and back up to the starting point through Chula Vista and National City. I remember it being a very fun ride.
p.s. I don't remember there being any rest stops/sags. We were all on our own.
