Had one hiccup this morning. When attempting to inflate my tires...my pump became "sticky" and stopped working. After attempting to fix it I decided to find a bicycle shop and purchase a new one. On a trip like this it is important to have gear that works.
In morning I'll begin my trek at 5am in hopes of beating some of the San Diego traffic. Tomorrow's route is a 75 mile stretch of roller coaster hills. The first 25-30 miles will be urban bicycling. I hope to end the day in Boulevard, CA.
