Average Speed: 15.8km/h
We started our day cycling through the wine area of Napa Valley stopping to eat the sweetest grapes I've ever tasted on the roadside every now and again. It was possible to use bike paths for most of the journey today aswell as a few quiet roads. My back tire started to warp a bit as we were passing through San Rafael where we stopped to eat. We were in a Mexican restaurant eating Burritos when a loud explosion went off outside. The whole restaurant went silent and the people outside stopped moving. I was pretty sure it was my tire and I was right. It had torn a 3 inch hole and the tube had an even bigger one. I used my last spare tire and tube and headed for Sausalito, the last town before the Golden Gate Bridge. Crossing the bridge is a really fitting way to end such a long cycle. It takes a good while to cross as it is nearly 3km long so it really hits you in the most obvious way that the cycle is complete.
We did this cycle to try to raise a grand for The Irish Cancer Society. To donate to the Irish Cancer Society please click here
