Some more pictures from Day 1

Here's the pictures I took during the climb of King's Mountain and then at the infamous Bike Hut. It was great riding with you guys. If you remember I had a hard stop with a meeting at 4:30. Made it home with 2 minutes to spare.

That's some serious sideways riding. A well-balanced crew!

We were headed down to the Central Coast wine region, so Sideways riding was appropriate.

One last photo, shared by Bob. Day 5 at the Elephant Seal viewpoint, a pink stretch vintage limo pulled in.

That's the long and the short of it.
