42 milesToday's planned route was 56 miles of relatively tame terrain, 1764' of elevation gain. The ride was a delight with a brisk tailwind speeding the journey through the seaside towns of Cayucos and Morro Bay.

On a sober note, Patti (WI) had a fall into a concrete barrier resulting in an ambulance trip to the emergency room. She was with other riders at the time who were able to care for her and accompany her to the hospital. She was released from the hospital and will return home, probably tomorrow, for followup care. We were all heartened to see Patti for a few moments at the end of dinner to wish her well.
