The Route

The plan as we see it, day by day, blow by blow! Please note that the plan is subject to change and is being refined for 2012!

Please make note of the fact that the trip is completed in 13 days. Day 13 itself could be very short if we board the van for Montara instead of riding there from the Golden Gate Bridge. With 15 total days available for riding, we get
2 rest days wherever we choose. These decisions will be made as a group.
